Introducing Shimla

Shimla is the finest state of India with the city blending stunning scenery, and extensive history and a refreshing ambience. Shimla and the surrounding region make for a great destination either art of a tour to northern India or an excursion from Delhi. It is situated on the edge of the Himalayan foothills, with crystal clear air and pine covered steep hills that overlook the snowy peaks to the north. This immaculate area and cooler atmosphere persuaded the British Raj to set up their midyear capital in Shimla to maintain a strategic distance from the stifling warmth of Delhi summers. Explore it with our Himachal Tour Packages.

Shimla is a precariously positioned city, arranged along a lofty edge of the Himalayan foothills. Toward the south the hills reduce to the fields of Delhi while toward the north the pinnacles ascend to converge with the cloud line. The central avenue of Shimla, which runs the length of the edge, is the main level surface of the capital while every single other street fall away to the valley floor on either side of the edge.

As a tourist destination there are various attractions and activities that can be covered up easily during busy days.  Shimla consists of various historical sites, wonderful hikes and an exuberant night life of bars and eateries. Well known short hikes included the stroll to Jakhoo Hill and the recently developed sculpture of Hanaum which towers over the city. The other way prompts the highest point of observation hill e and the old Viceroy Lodge where once all of India was governed from. The centre point of Shimla is without traffic and is a most loved area for all the Indians to walk around and admire the splendid colonial architecture.

Shimla is very different from rest of the Indian states and has retained its old world charm.
