The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Jakhu Temple and Christ Church. Get outdoors at Kufri Fun World and Himalayan Nature Park. Change things up with a short trip to Naldehra Golf Course in Naldehra (about 52 minutes away). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Shimla Water Catchment Wildlife Sanctuary, don't miss a visit to The Mall, admire the landmark architecture of Viceregal Lodge, and look for gifts at Shawl Hut.

To plan Shimla vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
