Naldehra Travel Guide

The rolling greens of Naldehra in Himachal Pradesh are par for the oldest golf course in India. This is an unusual course, perched at a height of 2044 metres, strewn with boulders, trees, and little hillocks.

Tall deodars flank the links making Naldehra a wonderful sports venue in the midst of natural beauty. At the turn of the century, Naldehra was "discovered" by the British Viceroy, Lord Curzon who was fascinated by the deodar forests and green-carpeted slopes. Curzon spent many a happy hour romancing Naldehra’s cedar woods, communicating all the while with the British summer capital at Shimla, 23 km away.

The idea of laying a golf course on the slopes of an enormous glade took root. The natural topography of the area was just right for a nine-hole golf course, surrounded by deodar woods and a view of the mountains.

Naldehra got its name from the Nag temple (or Dehra of the god Nag) which lies bang in the centre of the course. Besides the glorious golfing, you can go for long walks through the woods and picnics in the valley.

So travel to Naldehra and explore the rolling greens of this hillock.

Up there, at 6,706 ft, is a 9-hole golf course sitting amidst pine trees on the Hindustan-Tibet Road. You’ll never get such a high teeing off anywhere else in the world.
