about travel to Shimla

Q. Which are the places that I can visit from Shimla?

Asked by balaji on Friday, December 02, 2011

2 Answers

I've planned for a January tour to Shimla with wife and two kids under 10. I'll be reaching Kalka from Delhi on the morning of Dec. 31 at 0430h. My further booking is on the Himalayan Queen train from Kalka to Shimla but which starts only at 1100h on 31st to reach Shimla by 1600h. Since I've already booked a rest house at Shimla for four days (from 31st to 03rd), I don't want to waste the 31st morning when I've been told I can already reach Shimla by 1100hrs.

I've a great many queries but I'd appreciate further tour help on the following:

1. Any bus routes from Kalka to Shimla starting after 0430h? How long it'd take to reach Shimla then and the fare per person? Any other reasonable alternative like group taxi/cabs?

2. I've planned a 1-week tour so I'd be starting back for Delhi only on 06th Jan. Reasonable place to go 04th to 06th from Shimla with stay and sightseeing?

From your question, it looks like your going for the first time to Shimla.

You have booked for the Kalka-Shimla train, that too along with your family. I think it is a right decision. See, after all, it is a matter of just 5 hours (1100hrs to 1600hrs). And in family vacations, this 5 hrs is nothing.

Remember, lot of people come to Kalka, only to undertake this train journey. So, don't be disappointed later on, you have taken the right decision; and simply go as per your plan.

There are plenty of places like kullu, manikaran, manali etc for the remaining days to cover. And at manali, you can stay at www.silverbirchcottagesmanali.com.
