Chandigarh to shimla:
We went to Shimla in a group of 8 people.
We took the local bus for Shimla from Chandigarh bus stand sec 43 which took nearly 6 hrs. Then we go to our hotel which was near Rizz in shimla.
We went for outside visit at 4 pm and came back at 8 pm as the temperature was below -3° and you cannot roam on the roads at that cold temp.
Our day todo:
In that day we basically explore the shimla rizz and the church area by clicking some awesome picture and enjoying the snowfall...
Snowfall was the best part of my Shimla trip the, the snow is soft and loving.
They are very good in nature , interactive and caring. You can ask for the shortcuts and take ideas about the places from them.
If the budget little less then u should take a homestay using the websites like trivago , etc. Its cheap and best.
