Queen of Hills
The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around. The former summer capital of British India during the time of the Raj, Shimla was chosen on account of its climate and scenery, with the city today drawing in the crowds for the same reasons. Another reason to take a holiday in Shimla is to see the city's landmark buildings, which bear the hallmarks of colonial British architecture and dot the largely pedestrianized city center. A polite and welcoming introduction to the mountains that surround, Shimla trips usually form part of a wider tour of the region. Shimla is in Shimla District. Our India road trip tool allows you to schedule your trip to Shimla, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
