Morni Hills, the Hill Resort of Haryana

Morni Hills, the only hill resort of Haryana, lies on the foothills of the Shivalik ranges. The idyllic hill retreat is a paradise’ for nature lovers. The two lakes and the 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 12th-century shrine dedicated to the Hindu Trinity is located on the banks of the lake. Morni Hills is also a delight for wildlife enthusiasts and bird watchers. One can see animals like jackal, langur, hare, hyena, nilgai, sambar, barking deer (Kakadu), 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 are a forest tourist hut and a PWD rest house, which provides accommodation to tourists and trekkers.
