The Quaint Town Of Barog

It was named after Colonel Barog, an engineer who designed the Barog tunnel near the Railway Station of the town.

Barog is a quaint little town in the district Solan of Himachal Pradesh, away from the crowd and hustle bustle of city life. It was named after Colonel Barog, an engineer who designed the Barog tunnel near the Railway Station of the town. He made some errors in the calculations while digging out the tunnel and thus was fined. He felt humiliated for this and committed suicide. He was buried near the tunnel.

This tunnel is the longest of the 103 operational tunnels on the route of the Shimla-Kalka Railway, which is 1143.61 m long. Barog station is immediately after the tunnel. Barog tunnel is the straightest tunnel in the World. The Railway Station is very clean and green with not much hustle bustle here. Accommodation in the form of rooms and cottages are also available at the station. However, you may need to do some advance bookings.

Camping in the hills. This is where I stayed on my weekend trip to Barog. Many options for camping are available at Barog, if one is interested in camp stay.

It is the perfect place if you want to take a break and spend some time in solitude or with your family. Though I went there a long time back with my family but it is still as beautiful and serene as then 🙂
