It is easy to see why Shimla tops most Indian’s must-visit list; It is India’s only hill station to combine the beauty of the high Himalaya, the energy of a city and the sleepy charms of a hill station. At 6,890 ft, it offers lovely deodar forests and mountain views. Starting from the central ridge, it developed on seven nearby hills and now spils over into a Chhota Shimla and a New Shimla as well. Yet pleasure of the magnificent views over the surrounding hills, framed in dripping cedars and cypresses; the last traces of daylight gilding the colonial architecture; the thickly wooded trails where you meet almost no one; or the hot paranthas and tea on cold mornings, is unparalleled. Plus there are beautiful and fun getaways like Kufri, Naldehra or Mashobra, easily visited in a day.
The hill town that we konw as ‘Manali’ is actually a collection of three adjacent hills. Manali offers that haunting Himalayan beauty to which hill stations in the lower Himalayan ranges can only aspire. Look around and there’s the river made of freshly melted snow, and protected stretches of deodar. Look up – and the majestic Pir Panjal and Bara Bhangal ranges cradling the town mesmerise you.
