Dagshai in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, is a less-visited cantonment town with quite a wholesome of picnic-spots in its kitty, much left to be explored. The town was initially established as a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients, then served as a penal institution for convicts and now houses a number of picnic-spots with good panoramic-views where tourists love to spend an idyllic day-out. From this hill station, one gets to see the Timber Trail Heights and Timber Trail Resorts Parwanoo as well.

Facts to fascinate you:

  • Dagshai is one of the oldest cantonment towns in Solan and is positioned atop a hillock that stands astride on the Kalka-Shimla Highway.
  • It houses an army unit along with two schools- one residential and one private.
  • The Dagshai Cellular Jail with its 54 cells and associated-histories of its inmates has been converted into a wonderful museum.
