The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Take a break from the city and head to Jakhoo Hill and The Glen. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tara Devi Temple and Lakkar Bazaar. Go for a jaunt from Shimla to Naldehra to see Naldehra Golf Course about 52 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kali Bari Temple, meet the residents at Himalayan Bird Park, view the masterpieces at Image Art Gallery, and stop by Shawl Hut.

To find more things to do, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Shimla trip planner.

Drive from Manali to Shimla in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
