Visit The Queen Of Hills- Shimla

Shimla, the summer capital of erstwhile British Empire, is one of the most charming hill stations in north India. While this hill town still holds on to its colonial relics, it is also the ideal destination for some snow-fun during winters. From marvelous hills and pine-adorned valleys to snow sports, Shimla has a lot in its kitty. Wish to get any guidance to plan your Shimla trip? Go through this list of the not-to-be-missed places among Shimla attractions.

The Ridge

The Ridge
 
A vast open space located in the center of the city would not amount to much of a tourist attraction, is that so? But The Ridge is not just an open space. It is one of the best places to visit in Shimla. It has everything in one place, vast shopping areas, majestic views of pine valleys and snow-peaked mountains, and above all lots of space for everyone to move around. An imposing church, library, and a few statues too adorn the place.

Mall Road

Located close to The Ridge, Mall Road is another remnant of British roots of Shimla. The road is lined with shops that smell of antiquity and look like they are from a fairy-tale. This is the place for shopping for all traditional products of Himachal. No vehicles are allowed on this road. A leisurely stroll along Mall Road is one of the top things to do in Shimla. While you plan your Shimla trip, make sure to cover all nearby attractions such as Scandal Point and Kali Bari Temple along with Mall Road.

Jakhoo Hill

Jakhoo Hill, the highest peak in Shimla, is definitely one of the best Shimla attractions. From here, you get a panoramic view of the entire city, and the snow covered Himalayas too. There is an ancient temple on top, which is dedicated to Lord Hanuman. A giant idol of this God shines on the hill top. An abode of peace and sanctity, Jakhoo Hill is an essential part of any Shimla travel.

Kufri

When you plan your Shimla trip, don’t forget to include Kufri, the enchanting neighbor of Shimla. Although it is located at a distance of 20 kms from Shimla, Kufri is a must-visit due to its abundant natural beauty. This is also the hub for snow sports such as snowboarding and skiing in winters. Engaging in some adrenaline-pumping activities in Kufri is among the top things to do in Shimla. There is a Himalayan zoo where you can spot rare Himalayan wildlife.

Annandale

Annandale
 
Annandale was one of the favored destinations of the British rulers. They played games such as polo and cricket in the vast ground in Annandale. Today, the place is one of the best places to visit in Shimla due to sheer grandeur of the surroundings. There is a War Museum that tells tales of heroic deeds of our brave soldiers. Golf course here is also a neatly manicured heaven. Be sure to visit Annandale when you plan your Shimla trip.

Shaily Peak

Shaily Peak is another adorable one among Shimla attractions. This is located in Naldehra, at a distance of 20 kms from Shimla. Shaily Peak is a heaven for trekking enthusiasts. Cool cozy climate makes it a pleasant trek to the top. Walk with the accompaniment of cool breeze and whistling woods, to watch the astounding beauty from top. Horse ride is also an enjoyable activity here. Plan your Shimla trip with Shaily Peak trek as one of the things to do.
