Shimla: Full of History and Natural Beauty

Shimla is the biggest hill station in India. It’s no surprise because it was the summer capital of British India. Post-independence Shimla has been the Honeymooner’s Paradise in north India.

For my first trip to Shimla, I took Kalka Mail from Delhi to Kalka. After an overnight journey, I reached the sleepy little station of Kalka around 5.30 in the morning. From Kalka I had one of the most beautiful train journeys one can have. The journey, some 90-KM long, was done in a toy train. It was November 8, 2003, just a day before that railway line was about to complete its 100 years. I was travelling in the same train, which was supposed to make the historic journey next day, marking the hundred years of this wonderful gift of British India. You can blame them for a lot of bad things they did to India during their rule here but you have to give it the firangs (As British rulers were called then), they took the trains to the kind of places where Indians have not been able to even 60 years after getting independence. The toy train passes through some 103 tunnels, one of them, at Barog, is more than a kilometer long. That’s not all. It uses more than 800 bridges to reach Shimla!

My train, Shivalik Deluxe Express, stopped at Barog - a beautiful little station. The stop was for 10 minute where most of the passengers got down while catering staff collected breakfast to be served on the train. It was a lovely experience; early morning sunshine made me feel in a different world.

The train was full of honeymooners, as it was marriage season in India. Some of the couples seemed in a hurry to get lost in each other’s arms. Since it was a toy train that has small coaches, people were seated pretty close to each other.

I arrived at the Shimla station around 10.30 am. Starting from 660 mts at Kalka, I was now about 2000 mts above sea level. Immediately I was surrounded by Kashmiri potters. I negotiated with one of them and he helped me climb out of the station where I was met by the cab drivers. After bargaining, one of them drove me to my hotel. After checking into the hotel, a Raj-era building, I took shower and had brunch. I checked with the hotel manager about the places I could see in the remaining day. He suggested I walk up to the Mall Road that quintessential Raj left-over. Acting on his advice I decided to walk to the Mall. I was surprised to see so many tall deodar trees on both sides of the road before I reached the actual hustle and bustle of the Mall. It was same as the other Mall Roads. It feels as if all eateries asking you to ‘come and try’ the delicious fare. I went inside a restaurant, which served north Indian, south Indian, Chinese food and whatever you can think of. To be frank, it was awful. I ordered a pizza and that did not look like the pizzas one had seen or eaten before! After that misadventure with food I walked up to the Ridge. It has, for years, been used for all kinds of functions. During British rule, it was used to hold military parades. Sahebs and memsahebs used to enjoy the romantic evenings. There, you even have a place called Scandal Point, thus named because it is said that some officer’s wife had run away with an Indian prince from that very point!

I walked back to my hotel as it became dark and cold. The mountain air was having its effect.

Next day I visited Kufri, came back to The Mall Road, and did some roaming around.

On my last day in Shimla I went to see Viceregal Lodge from where British Viceroy ruled all over India for six months during summer. The Lodge now houses IIAS (Indian Institute of Advanced Studies). It was a magnificent building with a well-maintained and beautiful lawn in front of it. It was in this building that India’s destiny was decided by the Britishers. The tables and chairs have been kept as it is and every half an hour a tour is conducted with a guide to give you a glimpse of the history.

The visit to Viceregal Lodge was worth it. I am now better informed about the goings on in the final hours before India got its independence.

How to Reach: The best way to visit Shimla is train journey. Take Howrah-Kalka Mail to Kalka. From here you may take either ordinary toy train or a faster one called Shivalik Deluxe for a lifetime experience. The train takes you to Shimla. Other good option is overnight Volvo buses to Shimla.

Where to Stay: Shimla is full of hotels. In fact there are too many of them. Depending on your budget, you can choose any of them. Most of them are near the Mall road. The Cecil, Wildflower Hall, Woodville Palace and Springfields are some of the hotels worth trying.

<p>Dear Sujoy,</p><p>Thanks for your query,</p><p><br />It is too early to say anything about weather. Presently it is chilly and we require heavy woolens, specially morning and evening. It might snow that time but even if it does not you must carry your woolens as a safety precaution. If it rains heavily or snow it might damage your holiday as you shall not be able to go out of your room. I suggest that you must have your hotel room booked well in advance as that is the peak period and there are 10% chances that you do not get a proper and safe room.<br /><br />From Shimla Railway Station you can hire a taxi to the Mall that costs nearly 100 rs.</p><p>Good Day.</p>

But do not forget to have the Chana Bhatura from Sita Ram in Lakkar Bazaar, that opens only till 4 PM.</div><div>The best is to park your vehicle near lift or opposite </div><div>Thanks</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Sumit Vashisht</div><div>&nbsp;</div><br />

2 RaviMalhotra how is the climate in the last week of june? do we need to carry woolens? Thnx <p>Hi,</p> <p>The duration of summers in Shimla is from April to June. During this time, Shimla is overcrowded and packed with tourists, as temperature in the plains gets too high. The days are warm and the nights tend to get cooler. You need to carry some light warm clothes for the nights. There is occasional rainfall during summers, though not too heavy.</p> <p>Thnx</p>

2 Roshni Iam planning to go to Simla in the month of June from Mumbai along with Husband. Please advise the best & fairly reasonable mode of transport from Mumbai to Simla. How abt Rajadhani Express or fligh <p>Dear Roshini</p> <p>I feel that Rajdhani is the best option to reach Delhi and then take a taxi to Shimla. Cost nearly 5000 ? 6500/- depending upon the vehicles. Whether you come to Delhi by flight or Rajdhani, and you want to catch Shatabadi Express next morning, you have to stay overnight in Delhi. So to avoid this night take a taxi and reach Shimla by evening.</p> <p>In june the weather remains pleasant and you do not need any woolens. I advise you to book your hotel now as it is peak busy season time and it is always advisable to book your accommodation in advance to avoid last time chaos. Shimla offers a number of accommodation that includes guest houses, hotels, big hotels, resorts, camping five star etc. depending upon you pocket you may choose from them.</p> <p>Thanks and best regards</p>

2 ArunK which is the best time to visit shimla. <p>Hi Arunk,</p> <p>There is no such ideal time to visit Simla, as this pleasant hill station is one of the most preferred destinations in India at any given time. One can say that the peak season for Shimla travel is all though the year.</p> <p>Though Shimla has pleasant climate throughout the year, it experiences cold winters. The temperatures can drop to sub-zero conditions during the peak winter season. The best time to visit Shimla would be October to November and from March to May. It is advisable not to visit Shimla during monsoons as the place has a history of having landslides every now and then. The roads can get very slippery and it is not a good idea to roam around at this time.</p> <p>Have Fun!!!</p>

This is located just opposite Municipal Corporation Office at the Mall and has a sweet shop with a snacks shop at the ground floor and restaurant called Fascination at the top. They serve Indian, Chinees and Continental. Be careful while placing the order as their quantity is huge. 0177 - 2814054-59</p> <p>The Devico has been converted into Caf Coffee Day and also has a bar on top floor.</p> <p>Dimsum is good to have only Chinies food as run by a Chinies family who got settled here during second world war.</p> <p>Hotel Combermere at the mall has a nice restaurant and serves, Indian, Continental, Italian and Chineas.</p> <p>Oberoi Cecil can not be avoided in any case while talking about a good place to eat.

2 Desmond How does one see Shimla?? <P>Hello</p><p>Following are the places which you can easily cover by hiring a car.</p> <p>1. The Mall:- The Mall, like most hill stations in North India, is the main shopping centre of Shimla. It also has many restaurants, clubs, banks, bars, Post Offices and tourist offices. The Gaiety Theatre is also situated there. People walk up and down the Mall slowly, stopping to gossip, as it is the main meeting place for everyone. The Ridge and Scandal point are the two main meeting points at the Mall.</p> <p>2. Christ Church:- Situated on the Ridge is Christ Church, which is the second oldest church in Northern India. It has a very majestic appearance and inside there are stained glass windows which represent faith, hope, charity, fortitude, patience and humility. Christ Church is a place all visitors should spend some time in.</p> <p>3. Jakhu Hill:- 2 kms. from Shimla, at a height of 8000 ft, Jakhu Hill is the highest peak and offers a beautiful view of the town and of the snow-covered Himalayas. At the top of the Hill, is an old temple of Hanuman, which is also the home of countless playful monkeys waiting to be fed by all visitors.</p> <p>4. Shimla StateMuseum:- Art objects in the Museum collection are mostly related to art, archaeology and cultural anthropology of Himachal and other states of India. At present Museum, has about 9000 objects in its collection.</p> <p>5. Summer Hill: -Situated at a distance of 5 kms. from the Ridge is the lovely township of Summer Hill at a height of 6,500 ft. on the Shimla-Kalka railway line. Mahatma Gandhi lived in these quiet surroundings during his visits to Shimla.</p> <p>6. Annandale:- Developed as the playground of Shimla, Annandale is 2-4 kms. from the Ridge. It is a favourite spot for cricket, picnics and the princely game of polo.</p> <p>Have a wonderful trip.</p>

2 parul what are the various means of transportation available from Delhi to reach Shimla. thnx <p>Dear Parul,</p> <p>There are various options to reach Shimla from Delhi:-</p> <p>If you want to go by air then there is an airport at Shimla, though it is still not serviced by all the airlines. It is situated at a distance of around 23 km from Jubbarhatti. The airport is serviced by airlines like Jagson and Deccan Airways. Apart from that, the nearest airport is situated at Chandigarh. From there, you can get flights with Simplifly Deccan, Indian Airlines, etc from Delhi.</p> <p>The nearest railhead is situated at Kalka, where you can easily reach by taking a train from Delhi. From there, you can take the toy train to reach Summer Hill. The 96 km journey covered by the toy train will take around 5 hours to get completed. However, the journey will present such wonderful vistas of the countryside before you eyes that you will hardly notice the time.</p> <p>If you are planning to by road then it is well connected with an extensive road network. There is an all-weather road leading to the hill resort, from Chandigarh, Mandi and Delhi. You can easily get State Transport as well as private buses for reaching Shimla from New Delhi. Infact, the high-end Volvo buses also cater to tourists going to Shimla. You will also get taxis for covering the distance between the two destinations.</p> <p>I hope the above information will help you.</p> <p>Enjoy!!</p>

2 Supriya How is the weather in Shimla in month of January? <p>Dear Supriya,</p><p>There is no specific best season to visit as each season has its own charm. Warm clothes are needed throughout the year. In winters heavy woolens are a necessity. Winters in Shimla are chilling. December, January and February are the months when Shimla experiences heavy chilling cold, with chilly winds coming from Himalayan snow peaks. During winters, the temperature goes below freezing point and nights are bone chilling. Snowfall is also very common. Maximum temperature during winters is 8 -10 degree Celsius.</p><p>Thanks!</p>

Jammo - Pathankot - Kangra - Hamirpur - Bilaspur - Shimla
Montysharma
Dear Neel, There are two routes:- 1. JAMMU - pathankot by train - Pathankot - Shimla via (Kangra , hamirpur, bilaspur) 2. Jammu - Chandigarh to Shimla. both routes are feasible. Thanks! Vivek

Hi! The best way to drive down from jammu to shimla is via Pathankot, Jwalaji, Hamirpur, Bilaspur and down to Shimla. Being a 13-14 hour drive you can take a night halt at Jwalaji and have a break journey. Thanks! Mohit Sharma Great Himalayan Travels
Mohit S
Hi! There are direct buses connecting Jammu with Shimla. It is about 14hrs. journey. In case you are driving than you have to drive to Pathankot and enter Himachal Pradesh. Keep on driving upto Kangra. From there may drive via Hamirpur. If you are nature lover than may drive through Palampur.The drive parallel to the majestic Dhauladhar range of the Mighty Himalaya is one of the best drive. Enjoy the beauty of Tea gardens at Palampur. Keep on driving upto Mandi and after touching the NH drive towards Bilaspur.There is bifurcation from Ghagas for Shimla. Hence you do not have to touch Bilaspur. Regards, Naresh Sharma

2 vijayshree Please tell me how can i travel to shimla by train. I am planning to visit 12 dec . please help. we are honeymoon couple Hi! You have not mentioned from where you are coming to Shimla. I assume that you are coming from Delhi. Kalka, located at a distance of 96 kilometers from Shimla is the nearest railhead. From Delhi you can take a train to reach Kalka. In any case you have to change the train, as there are no direct trains to Shimla. From Kalka, it takes around 6 hours to reach Shimla. The frequency of trains that ply from Kalka to Shimla is pretty good, with atleast 4 trains plying to and fro from Shimla. The journey from Delhi to Kalka is an overnight journey and reaches Kalka early morning. Thanks!

Hi Indra, The chances of road block due to landslide are very remote and in case if it is there. it is cleaned within a reasonable time. Usually there is no blockade of road due to snow fall unless it is unexpectedly heavy snow fall which is also cleared urgently for smooth vehicular traffic. Mohit Sharma Great Himalayan Travels

Hi! Please note that in general land slides do occur in rainy season some times due to heavy rain. so far as in winter when there is snow precipitation especially in the month of Jan and Feb and due to cold weather snow take lot of time to melt and as you are aware land slide occur only when bonding between soil is loosen by rainy water. so the chances of land slide are less.

Hi! Ambala is approximately 175 kms. from Shimla and is about 4hrs. drive. Cabs are available from Shimla. All buses bound for Delhi pass through Ambala. Buses of all classes such as Volvo, deluxe, semi-deluxe and ordinary are available. Alternatively one can board a narrow gauge train upto Kalka and therefrom take a cab. This would take a little extra time. Regards, Naresh Sharma

Hi! You can take a taxi or bus to reach Ambala from Shimla which is about five hours journey. The other alternative would be take toy train from Shimla to Kalka and then connecting train from Kalka to Ambala. Mohit Sharma Great Himalayan Travels
