Shimla has been the one-stop destination for tourists to escape the scorching summers of North India. Nestled in the Himalayas at an elevation of more than 7000 feet above sea level, this hill station gives all a reason to rejoice. If in summers, lush mountains are visible all around, in winters, the area wraps itself in a thick blanket of glistening snow. From throwing snowballs at each other to walking leisurely on the mountains, Shimla tours bring with them opportunities to indulge in a variety of activities. Those, who are availing Shimla tour in the months of December and January, can head to Kufri. About 17 km from the hill station, Kufri is one of the most renowned skiing destinations in the country.
The culture here is a medley of age-old traditions and the British colonial influence. Places like Jakhu, Kali Bari, Tara Devi and Sankat Mochan temples are perfect to get to know the local beliefs and tradition. Its colonial counterpart can be seen at Christ Church, Viceregal Lodge, Saint Michael’s Cathedral, Gaiety Theatre, Town Hall and Gorton Castle. Restaurants, serving traditional Himachali food, and those specialising in Western-style delicacies are also great places to see this rich cultural contrast. Besides families and backpackers, Shimla tours are also a rage as the hill station offers numerous activities to stay close to one another.
