Written By: Akshatha

Shimla or Simla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh is a tourist hub in India. One can try different things here, an adventure enthusiast can do trekking, paraglinding, etc, a nature lover can enjoy the landscapes and a photographer can go on clicking some splendid shots.

Shimla has many tourist places which people thoroughly enjoy. Except for the monsoons (July - September), a trip here is a best thing. Of course, it has been a summer destination for years in Himachal Pradesh and the snowfall in winter offers a lot for snow sports like skiing, snowboarding, etc.

October-November months are pleasant and is apt for people who expect a stable climate. The scenery, mountains, climate and the railways altogether makes it one of the popular hill stations in India.
