History

Shimla is the finest state of Indias capital with the city blending stunning scenery, an extensive history and a refreshing ambience. Shimla and the surrounding region makes for a great destination as either part of a tour of northern India or as an excursion from Delhi. Shimla 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 pristine location and cooler climate convinced the British Raj to establish their summer capital in Shimla to avoid the suffocating heat of Delhi summers. The remnants of this era line the streets of Shimla, with mock,Tudor houses and classically styled municipal buildings that would not look out of place in any British town.

Shimla is a unique destination and is the most accessible of Indias hill stations, which make it ideal as a two day excursion from Delhi or introduction to the mountain states. Let us here at ShimlaIndiaGuide.com show to you why you should include this wonderful colonial city in your visit to India.

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION

Shimla is a precariously positioned city, situated along a steep ridge of the Himalayan foothills. To the south the hills lessen to the plains of Delhi while to the north the peaks rise up to merge with the cloud line. The main street of Shimla, which runs the length of the ridge, is the only flat surface of the capital while all other roads fall away to the valley floor on either side of the ridge. The scenery of Shimla is beautiful.

As a tourist destination there are numerous attractions and activities that can easily fill two busy days. Shimla combines historical sights, pleasant hikes and a lively nightlife of bars and restaurants. Popular short hikes include the walk to Jakhoo Hill and the newly constructed statue of Hanaum which towers above the city. In the opposite direction leads to the summit of observation hill and the old Viceroy Lodge where once all of India was ruled from. The centre of Shimla is traffic free and is a favourite location for well to do Indians to stroll amongst the perfectly maintained colonial architecture.

Highlights

One of the highlights to the region is the railway that connects Shimla with Kalka, the train of this 19th century engineering marvel slowly weaves through the 108 tunnels and bridges and was one of the worlds most difficult railways to construct. Shimla boasts three main shopping streets selling specialist wares of the region and along these streets are numerous bars and restaurants. Shimla is an ideal destination for onward travel as from the state capital bus station there are routes to every region of Himachal Pradesh.

Shimla is a suitable destination as a short excursion from Delhi. Delhi and the other cities of the plains are draughty, demanding and challenging, especially in the hot summer season and Shimla offers a cooling and comparative relaxed alternative. Shimla is a destination that will appeal to all styles and types of visitors and is a highly recommended Indian destination to visit.
