I am blessed to live in the beautiful city of Chandigarh, which has various natural beauties. A natural place close to my heart, just 50 kilometres from my city, is the Kusalli Hills. I have known this place since my childhood.

 When I was six years old, my father took me to Kusalli during summer vacations, and I stayed there for one week, where I had a gala time with my family members. This place is different from usual cities because it is away from the hustle and bustle of urban areas and is undoubtedly a hill station. Still, it is not a well-developed hill station, so few facilities exist. There are only a few hotels, and it is famous for its climate, which keeps changing throughout the day.

 Sometimes, you get scorching heat, and after 15 minutes, there is a cold temperature. Hence, the weather remains ambiguous over here, and I like to visit it for various reasons; first, I use this natural place as a stress buster because it keeps me away from the city’s noise. While relaxing in the lap of nature, I feel overwhelmed.

 Moreover, we can get organic food at this place because farmers from nearby villages come over here and sell organic food products. I visit them, and I purchase organic food items, then I bring them to my city, and then we cook them and eat them.

 Moreover, it is an excellent place to spend time with friends and family, so I organize parties whenever I have leisure time. This place is significant to me, and the wonderful time spent here will remain in my memories.

Well, we all should be connected with nature in our life. Nature is the best thing in this world. It is not man-made and is being made by the nature itself. I like to visit many natural places, but one place which is close to my heart is Siswan Waterfall. 

It is from two to three hours drive from Chandigarh. It is a waterfall which is very beautiful. The Sisma is a very high climb mountain. It is a four to five-kilometre trek. We have to do the trek first, and then we will reach the top of the mountain where we see a very beautiful waterfall, which is like the beauty of nature and feels like heaven.

 I visited it in my 10th class on a trip with all of, in a school trip of all the geographical students. They wanted to show us the geographical expression of these places and tell us about nature more. We, it was a 20 students group. I visited it with my friends and all. 

After that, I was very connected with that place and I found my heaven on the earth, which was very nice. Then I started visiting the place once or twice a month. And nowadays I visit once a week for sure. I think that everyone should go there and once have the experience as it’s stress-free the mind and makes us feel very fresh and good. It also helps me to do, it also helps me to concentrate on anything. 

If I have any of my work or any of my things stuck in between, I take the stuff there and work on it by sitting for one or two hours there on the mountain cliff. It helps me to concentrate on nature and tells me how to solve the problem. 


Here are some examples of follow-up questions that the examiner might ask during your speaking part 3 related to the cue card “Describe a natural place (e.g. parks, mountains) ”.

1. What kind of people like to visit natural places? 

In my opinion, those people who are nature enthusiasts, who love to spend time in the lap of nature, those people are likely to visit natural places, and most of those people are not youngsters because these days the younger generation prefers to go to shopping malls and amusement parks. They find less interest in going to beaches and hill stations. 

2. What are the differences between a natural place and a city? 

A natural place is nature’s blessing to us. So it is usually pollution-free, and you can see the wonders of nature over there like trees, and beautiful landscaping, water bodies like rivers. On the contrary, in a city, there are a lot of concrete jungles in the form of skyscrapers. There are a lot of offices and cities that have traffic congestion, they have flyovers and above all, they have pollution also. 

3. Do you think that going to the park is the only way to get close to nature?

 I don’t think that going to the park is the only way to get close to nature. Sometimes you can go to the beaches as well and to the mountains as well. And even if you go to a farm, then also you feel close to nature because when you roam around in the fields in a lush green environment, you automatically get connected to nature.

4. What can people gain from going to natural places?

 In this modern era where fierce competition has become an integral part of our lives, it is prudent to go to natural places because there you find peace and, a full environment. Moreover, you remain away from the hustle and bustle of the cities, and you relax and adore this wonderful creation of the Almighty. 

5. Are there any wild animals in the city? 

These days, there are no such wild animals in the city because even if a wild animal comes from the forest to the city, the people kill them. So that’s why even the wild animals refrain from coming to the cities. On some occasions, they come like during the coronavirus pandemic when there was a lockdown. A lot of wild animals came to the cities. 

6. Do you think it is a good idea to let animals stay in local parks for people to see? 

In my opinion, animals should not be put in local parks for people to see because animals are an integral part of this planet, and they are not for the exhibition and interest of human beings. They are living beings, and if not all, they should have a right to privacy. So it is an imprudent idea to keep animals in local parks.
