The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Shop till you drop at Image Art Gallery and Lakkar Bazaar. Escape the urban bustle at Naldehra Golf Course and Jakhoo Hill. Change things up with these side-trips from Shimla: Tara Devi Temple (in Taradevi) and Craignano (in Mashobra). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Annandale Army Heritage Museum and take in the spiritual surroundings of Jakhu Temple.
