Morni Hill Resorts: Chandrawal Kunj

March 2, 2012

Chandrawal Kunj is one of the oldest resorts of Morni. It is also the greenest resort in the hills. It is located atop the chir-pine covered hill that overlooks Bhoj Jabial, about a kilometre from Morni along the Morni-Tikkar Tal road. The resort is built on leveled piece of land alongside a natural pond, with green hill-tops forming the backdrop to the South and East. The main cottage is painted in bright colours as are the four ‘huts’ (single room with sloping red roof). The flaming red poinsettias that have been planted along the boundary wall with the pond add colour and life to the resort. A large gazebo serves as the common dining area. The height is about 1200 metres and the thick cover of pines all around the resort makes it one of the coolest spots in summers. The owners have planted a wide variety of trees and flowery shrubs inside the resort.The deodars that are generally found at altitude greater than 1500 metres have been grown successfully inside the compound and promise to attain their majestic heights in another decade or so. The experiment with deodar needs to be replicated by the forest department as they definitely look more regal than the chir pine that takes equal time to grow.The resort is visited by a wide variety of birds and one can frequently spot the beautiful Red-billed Blue Magpie hunting for frogs at the pond adjacent to the resort.Food quality is decent but the rooms have a lower end, budget hotel feel.An ideal stop over for a trek or a drive to the tals.

The resort is named after ‘Chandrawal’, the first commercially successful Haryanvi film that was released in 1984 and starred the proprietor of this resort in the lead role. She  also produced the film and has recently started the filming of a sequel.

    Never ever expected such a lovely, peaceful, Zero Polluted Green Hill is hardly 280 KM (5 Hr) G.T. Karnal Road Drive from Delhi.

    Went there for 2 Nights last week along with 3 wonderful families. All the 4 huts were booked for us at very reasonable budget. Had excellent and freshly cooked food. Enjoyed Music Dance Drink Masti alongside Bonfire arranged by Staff.
    Certainly would luv to visit again and again
