The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Naldehra Golf Course and Jakhoo Hill. Visiting The Glen and Kufri Fun World will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: walk around Annandale Ground, take in the spiritual surroundings of Jakhu Temple, stroll through Himalayan Bird Park, and take in the natural beauty of Hotel Hot Spring Therme & Spa.

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