The Haryana Government has developed this hill resort and provides facilities to tourists, a motorable road was constructed to connect the Morni hills with Haryana State Highway near Panchkula. A Forest Department rest house "Lal Munia" and a PWD rest house were also constructed to accommodate tourists and trackers. There are also small playgrounds for children. There is a roller skating rink and a swimming pool. It is an ideal place for tourists who want to avoid crowds and for those who love nature.There are a number of resorts that add to accommodation options and variability in and around Morni.It is a place that is frequented by nature starved people(whose tribe is ever growing in cities) on the weekends or holidays and it might be difficult to grab a decent meal at times in the high season.A decently stocked liquor vend and an attached snack shop that serves turmeric laden omelettes and toasted bread ,does for the meals to famished tourists. The best season to visit is September to March, because it might get hot or humid during the rest of the months and venturing might be overly-humid.

It has 2 small man-made lakes called Tikkar Taal, bada tikkar and chota tikkar. Tikkar Taal offers good attraction for tourist and campers to frequent Morni. Campers accommodation in dormantories is made available by Haryana Tourism at Tikkar Taal.

The road that descends from the zenith of the hillstation brings you to a seasonal waterfall that drops into a muddy lake but is aloof from crowds , so gives relaxation space and time .Further up the road takes you into Himachal pradesh.On the high point where the road forks for the steep descent for the twin lakes,at clear nights,especially after showers one can see the lights of chandigarh.The geometrically placed streetlights,neon or sodium vapour, & occasionally bright signboards, howsoever blurred tend to mesmerize you.

There are three roads that connect Morni to chandigarh or other nearby towns(courtesy Haryana government), so one wont get stuck up in case of a blockade on any road, likely landslides in the rains.The town has grown so has time required to absorb the milleu and soak the nature and experience that it provides.

history



Traditions assign the name of Morni to a Queen who is believed to have ruled this area. Among the spurs of hills, lie two lakes, the larger is about 550 meters long and 460 meters broad and the other about 365 meters either way. A hill divides the two lakes but there is some Hidden channel, as the level of two lakes remains the same. The people look upon the lakes as sacred. There is an old fort, which is now in ruins. The hills are covered by pine trees. The climate is salubrious and the area is suitable for trekki
