The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.

There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sankat Mochan Temple, see the interesting displays at Annandale Army Heritage Museum, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jakhoo Hill, and go for a walk through Shimla Heritage Walk.
