I have recently moved to Gurgaon, and would want to explore some nice sight seeing places around.

I have explored the nice number of malls around. But, I would be more interested in scenic beauty. However, I haven't come across any(atleast around where I stay now, which is Sushant Lok and near my office which is in Cyber City).

So, are there any nice scenic places around which I can explore?

PS: By scenic places, I mean nature and landscape.

Nuh:

The place is the district head quarters of the Mewat district. The place has few historical monuments, like shaking minarets; they are the only vibrating minarets in India. Only due to lack of maintenance it didn't attract many of the tourists. It requires great attention from the government. (Source)

And many other places.

Sultanpur National Park is 15km west of Gurgaon and is great for bird watching in the winter because of the large number of migratory birds which come here.

Asola Bhatti Wild Life Sanctuary is 20km east of Gurgaon. It is very large and offers a wide variety of wildlife, captured monkeys from Delhi, nature trails, former mines being reclaimed, and a Conservation Education Centre. (Directions)
