I have fond memories of Shimla! The capital city of Himachal in the foothills of the Great Himalayas still basks in colonial charm. Shimla fascinates every traveler with its terrific outdoors and unique appeal form the British Raj. No wonder why British trusted Shimla as their proud summer capital. Head to this place between July and September, that's the best time to visit Shimla when misty mornings welcome you to the heavenly abode.
Shimla Ridge - the 13 km stretch neatly entwined in the heart of Shimla is a hub of cultural activities and the most popular things to do in Shimla. Head to the Mall road next because it is the most prominent market hub of Shimla where every traveler's favorite thronged by tourists the most. From the best places to eat in Shimla to the most popular shops selling the best of traditional clothes and leather goods, Mall Road has it all.
Intersecting the Mall Road and The Ridge is Scandal Point - a popular sightseeing attraction in Shimla, and a must-visit for every adventure seeker. Head to Shimla if you are planning on a long romantic walk. Besides, State Museum, Summer Hill, Himalayan Bird Park, Gorton Castle, and Kali Bari Temple are some other popular tourist attractions of Shimla. Leave the vehicles, you can actually go walking in Shimla - it is highly recommended. The pleasant weather in Shimla hovers around 20 degrees Celsius, thus making it an ideal fit for every traveler.
Direct buses from Delhi to Shimla ply from ISBT Kashmiri Gate. Volvo buses take a little more than 7 hours to complete a journey spanning 346 km.
