From an old descriptive: This pretty and picturesque village is distinguished for the remarkable height and luxuriance of a species of larch, which botanists designate as the pinus deodora.The group represented in the accompanying engraving affords a good specimen of the character of this fine tree, which attains an almost incredible height in some parts of the hill districts,the tallest of those delineated measuring 160 feet; but it is asserted, that some are to be found 180 feet in height. The Choor mountain from its great altitude and peculiar situation, presents every variety of vegetation that mountainous regions afford; and it is scarcely necessary to proceed further to become thoroughly acquainted with tile leafy products of the hills of Hindoostan.
