The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Change things up with these side-trips from Shimla: Naldehra Golf Course (in Naldehra) and Maharaja's Palace (in Chail). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Jakhu Temple, admire all the interesting features of Indian Institute of Advanced Study, make a trip to The Mall, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Annandale.

To see ratings, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Shimla trip itinerary planner .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
