The capital of Himachal Pradesh is yet again a hilly town spread over a bunch of pictuesque hills which again are crowned with snow at winters. Unlike its rivals, Shimla has a toy train connectivity from the nearby village of Kalka which is about 100 kms apart. The train journey though slow offers a visual treat rich in different terrains and altitudes. Pines, steep slopes, snow, hilly terrains are all you can count on in shimla.
Kali Ka Tibba
I got up at 5.15 AM the next morning and went to Kali Ka Tibba temple. It was a beautiful hike from Chail and the best part was getting accompanied by a dog for my complete to and fro hike. Passing through dense pine forests, oakwood trees and enjoying the first rays of sun on my way, this is one go the best walks I ever had. You can read about the walk and my trip with Sheru(the dog) in one of my short stories , A Walk To Remember.
