Shimla Weekend Package 2N/3D
(price per person)
The “Queen of hill Stations” former summer capital of the British in India, and the current capital of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla has been blessed with all the natural bounties which one can think of. It has got a striking location, it is surrounded by green hills with snow capped peaks. The sensational cool hills accompanied by the structures made during the colonial era creates an aura which is very different from other hill.
Convex at its seams with unprecedented expansion, Shimla retains its colonial heritage, with grand old buildings, charming iron lamp posts and Anglo-Saxon names. The Mall,
packed with shops and eateries, is the main attraction of the town, and Scandal Point, associated with the former Maharaja of Patiala's escapades, offers a view of distant snow clad peaks.
Shimla is superbly located, and though there is an air service to the town, it is best reached by road that takes in the charms of the Himalayan countryside at its best. There is a sense of wistfulness about Shimla, with its old bungalows and their gabled roofs and beautiful gardens.
You will come beyond several British structures in Shimla such as the Viceregal lodge, Auckland House, Gorton Castle, Peterhoff house, and Gaiety Theatre that are the reminders of the colonial times. Some of the most outstanding things to watch in Shimla are the Himachal State Museum & Library, Viceregal Lodge, Botanical Gardens, Indian Institute of Advanced Studies, The Ridge, The Mall, Summer Hill, Glenn and Taradevi Temple. Everything in this fantastic town has a unique appeal and never fails to impress even the most demanding tourists.Show less
