Morni Hill Tourism

Morni Hills, the only hill resort of Haryana, lies on the foot hills of Shivalik ranges.  The idyllic hill retreat is a ‘paradise’ for nature lovers.  The two lakes and Ghaggar River are the main attractions for the tourist.  The lakes are separated by a hillock but are believed to be interconnected through a hidden channel that always keeps the same water level in both the lakes.  A 12the century shrine dedicated to the Hindu Trinity is located on the banks of the lake.  Morni Hills are also a delight for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers.  One can see animals like, jackal, langur, hare, hyena, neelgai, sambar, barking deer (kakad) and even leopards in the jungles around Morni Hills.  The commonly sighted birds here are blue peafowl, khalij pheasant, red jungle fowl, quails, Himalayan bulbul etc.
The region is also ideally suited for trekking.  Haryana Tourism has built the Mountain Quail Tourist Complex near the ruins of an old fort.  There is a forest tourist hut and a PWD rest house, which provides accommodation to tourists and trekkers.
