From the distance the twinkling lights of evening all over the Mall road that goes round in the north looks more like a necklace and yes, rightly you can call it queen’s necklace. Shimla, the queen of hills as it is called popularly is one of the most popular hill station destinations of India. Located at an altitude of more than 6500 meters surrounded by alpine forests and snow covered peaks this small and elegant hill station which was the erstwhile capital of British has both history’s glory and nature’s gift at its disposal and nowhere in Himalaya you can find such typical confluence of heritage, historical marvels and nature’s splendid abundance in one place.
The former summer capital of the British in India, and the present capital of Himachal Pradesh.Shimla has been blessed with all the natural bounties which one can think of. It has got a scenic location, it is surrounded by green hills with snow capped peaks. The spectacular cool hills accompanied by the structures made during the colonial era creates an aura which is very different from other hill.
