Join us on a holiday to Shimla

With mountain views, thick forest and charming crafts shops, Shimla is a jewel in northern India's crown.

As the capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh, visitors from throughout India and further afield come to this delightful city nestled in the Himalayan foothills to stroll along its scenic streets and take advantage of its cooler climate. The former summer capital of the British Empire, Shimla is still home to a number of relics from this time. Viceregal Lodge was once the summer residence of the British Viceroy, and this Tudor-style mansion can now be visited as part of your Shimla tour. The British influence can also be seen in Christ church, the second-oldest church in northern India, and the Kalka-Shimla Railway, built in 1904 to connect the city to the country's railway network.

The city's pedestrianised centre is home to the Mall, a street lined with handicraft shops and views of the Himalayas from the Ridge, and Lakkar Bazaar, a bustling market offering toys and carefully crafted wooden souvenirs. A little further out, the Tara Devi temple is one of the city's most visited landmarks, while the surrounding valleys, hills and forests provide ample hiking opportunities. To combine your Shimla tour with a visit to renowned sites such as the Taj Mahal and Ranthambore National Park, take a look at our Golden Triangle and Shimla tour.
