Sample Answer 1


In the modern era, industrialization has made inroads in our lives, and the places with scenic beauties are declining. And one has to visit far-flung places to experience the natural beauty of nature.

Recently I visited one such place which is worth mentioning.

What place did you visit? And When did you see it?

Last year due to the corona pandemic, there was a lockdown in my city, and I remained indoors for six months. Finally, when the administration lifted the lockdown, I breathed relief, and to celebrate the much-awaited freedom, I visited the nearby hill station Kasauli.

What did you see?

Firstly I saw the Kasauli Baptist Church. It was built in 1923, and this tall building is still intact.

After that, I visited various hilltops and clicked numerous pictures. Being a photography enthusiast, I love clicking pictures, and due to the immense beauty of the hills in Kasauli, I connected all images with different backgrounds.

Since I went in winter, a few snowcapped hills were visible, and I captured them with my camera.

Why did you like it?

Kasauli is a clean and pristine hill station. Unlike other places with hills, it is not overcrowded, and there is not much development over here. Due to this reason, the beauty is in its original shape.

Moreover, there was no hustle and bustle, so I enjoyed it with complete freedom, and the quality time I had over, there will always remain etched in my memories.
