So, you have booked your Shimla package from Delhi! Great! Now what?

Let me tell you that Shimla is much more than just a romantic escape or a jam-packed hill station that people visit during summer vacations. If you can plan it right, you will definitely have a lot more fun during your trip. Here we’ve listed 4 things that you must add to your itinerary.



Appreciate the Viceregal Lodge:

Visit the Viceregal Lodge which was once used to be the residence of the ex- British Viceroy of India. At present, it dwells the Indian Institute of Advanced Study placed on the Observatory Hills of Shimla.

This beautiful building standing tall since 1888 & even at present features a majestic façade. There’s also a small eatery where tourists can enjoy a quick bite. If you are keen to know more regarding the building’s architecture & history, there’s a guided tour accessible at a negligible fee. This lodge certainly represents the best of British architecture.




Enjoy a toy train ride:

Make sure your Shimla package from Delhi,which can include a toy train ride. The picturesque views & the delightful climate are a joyful experience in itself that you certainly don’t want to miss out. A narrow gauge rail track, the toy train runs from Kalka to Shimla, a total of 96 kilometers.

Ensure you book a window seat as you’ll witness many villages & hills en-route to Shimla encompassing Taradevi, Barog, Solan and Summer Hill. You’ll also go through many tunnels on this toy train journey. Don’t dare to miss out this ride of a lifetime.

Pay a visit to Summer Hill:

Placed at a height of 1283m the Summer Hill is an extraordinarily stunning sightseer site in Shimla. The location is enclosed by the tranquil exquisiteness of calm hills that offer it a pleasant & breathtaking aura. Summer Hill is a perfect location for those who want to enjoy a leisurely stroll amidst the tranquility of Mother Nature. The hilly trees of deodar and pine add to the prettiness of the place.  Though the location is open throughout the year, the most favorable time to explore the region is during winter when the climate is cool & humid.

Try your hands on river rafting:

River rafting is perhaps the most recognized adventure sports in Shimla.  The free-flowing rivers in Shimla provide the most favorable conditions for adventurous river rafting. The River Sutlej that flows close to Shimla provides great opportunities for river rafting.
