Shimla (6500+ ft asl) is the capital city of Himachal Pradesh. Shimla, though a crowded city is now a popular tourist destination and a local getaway.

Shimla is best visited in Winter (Jan – March) when it snows in and around Shimla.

Guests from all over North India especially Delhi, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Ludhiana etc. flock over weekends to experience snow. Even for any tourist looking to visit Shimla, winter is a better time as crowd is lesser, weather at its best and there is snow (if not in Shimla, certainly in areas around Shimla within 25 kms radius).

Recommended Stay Duration: 2 nights
