About Gurka Fort

Gurkha Fort is a historical place located in Parwanoo, Himachal Pradesh. It is situated on a small hillock in Subathu which is a little town in Kasauli. Visitors can reach the place following a journey of about 16 kilometers from Parwanoo via road. Also, it is well connected to National Highway 22. The rustic fort stands tall at a remote corner of the town with dense forest cover surrounding it. Various other buildings from the British Era are also present in the town with Gurkha fort being among the important ones. As per the terms of the Britain-India-Nepal Tripartite Agreement that followed after India’s independence on 1947, six Gorkha regiments became part of the Indian Army and had served ever since. The town of Parwanoo serves as a regimental center for the Gurkha rifles. Several tales surround the Gurkha Fort. Believing one such story, the Gurkha Army Chief Amar Singh Thapa built the Gurkha Fort to fight against the British Army. Another story states that when the fort was under the custody of King of Patiala, it was conquered by the Gurkhas. This fort is at an elevation of nearly 4500 feet above sea level. Tourists can enjoy trekking in the nearby villages with serene hilly backdrops or indulge in some nature photography.
