Summer Hill, Shimla

#5 of 13 in Nature in Shimla
Summer Hill is a small town on the outskirts of Shimla, the state capital of Himachal Pradesh. It is situated on a hill, 5 km west to the Shimla Ridge, and is part of the seven-hill cluster.

Besides being a popular tourist destination, The Indian Institute of Advanced Study (Estb. 1965), housed in the former Viceregal Lodge, which was built in 1884-88, is also situated on the nearby Observatory Hill.

Today, it also hosts the Himachal Pradesh University, which mainly offers Post Graduate Programmes in the fields of Humanities, Commerce, Science, Management, Law and Languages, and was started in 1975. Most students here walk to the Hill Station of Shimla from the campus, though Summer Hill lies on the Kalka to Shimla railway line.
