Few weeks back I was at Barog Railway station around Solan region of Himachal Pradesh, and got to know that this beautiful railway station has some guest rooms which can be booked through IRCTC website. It was amazing to explore that beautiful Himalayan railway stations have guest-houses to spend quality time around natural beauty.
Railway station at Barog is one of the most beautiful station on Shimla-Kalka railway line. This region is one of the most beautiful hilly station around Solan and that's one of the main reason that people come to this place for picnic or a ride in toy train from Solan/Shimla.
There are few rooms in this railway station which are facing a water stream. Are you wondering that how a stay on railway station can be interesting? Let me clear few basic doubts - only 3 trains cross this railway station in a day and everyone likes to see these toy trains crossing through Barog station :). Can you visualize a slow moving train through hills of Himachal Pradesh? But that's not enough. Even if there is no noise, why someone should spend 1/2 night(s) here?
Definitely this place is for explorers and folks who love being around nature. It's very peaceful place surrounded by pine forests and high hills.
