Shimla, the capital of Himalachal Pradesh spills over the steep slopes of a 12kms long crescent shaped ridge in the lower Himalayas. It was once the glamorous summer capital of British India. Shimla has a number of pretty walks and the highest point on the ridge with the Jakhu temple is a 45 minute walk from the Mall. From here once can have an excellent view of snow peaks and dark forested slopes.

    • “Our 14 day tour of India included visits to prime destinations such as Leh, Ladakh, Manali, Shimla, Delhi, and Agra was beyond excellent. Our travel company (Indebo) went out of their way to help plan our vacation and took care of every little detail during our travel. Trusting Indebo with our travel planning was the best decision we made and I would recommend them to anyone looking to travel to India.” – Mira Thanki, USA
