The Water Catchment Sanctuary.
A fantastic example of colonial engineering. Water was transported from here to Shimla in what are believed to have been the first steam pumped pipes in India. Nowadays, this 12 square kilometre forest is abundant in Himalayan flora, fauna and still boasts an intricate network of rainwater streams.
