Barog is a beautiful locale, situated 5 km from
and 37 km from
. The thick pine forest surrounding the town adds to its scenic charm. The Choor Chandini (mountain of the silver bangle) is clearly seen from Barog. This vision is seen on moonlit nights when silver bangles seem to slide down the mountain slopes.
Barog was an important stop on the railway line that passed through this place, in the early part of the 20th century. The hill train used to stop here for an hour, while the travelers enjoyed a sumptuous lunch. Now Barog, for its rejuvenating air and views, has metamorphosed into a little holiday destination in the state.
