About Shimla Tour Package

The Queen of Hills, as Shimla was fondly called by the British, is one of the famous hill station in the Himalayan foothills. The capital town of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla was 'discovered' by the British in 1817. It is situated at 2213 meters above sea level.

Shimla derives its name from Goddess Shyamala, an incarnation of Goddess Kali. Its commanding position on the crest of a ridge, cool air and lust countryside quickly made it a favourite summer resort. By 1864, when it was declared the summer capital of the British Raj in India, the 'Queen of Hill Stations' had become the epitome of everything British. The town is busy, lively and nostalgically 'English', with quaint Raj-era hotels and buildings. Sprawling over seven hills by dense forest and mountains, Shimla is also the starting point on the journey to the untouched parts of Himachal like Naldehra, Narkanda, Kufri and Chadwick Falls. Around 50,000 tourists reach Shimla and its nearby areas on an average weekend. For those looking adventure and beauty, Shimla is the central confluence of roads leading west to the Kangra Valley; north to Kullu, Lahaul and Ladakh; and east into the valleys of Kinnaur and Spiti. The hill station offers many pleasant walks through Himalayan mountains thick with oak, deodar cedar, and pine trees.

Shimla has a pleasant climate throughout the year.
