Simla is the capital and the largest city of the northern India state of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamsala being the other capital. Shimla is also a district which is bounded by Mandi and Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, the state of Uttarakhand in the south-east, and Solan and Sirmaur. Sitting majestically above the lush plains, the British designated the town as the summer capital of India. The higher terrains of the town reflect this British connection, embodied by its buildings, built in the Victorian style, while the lower slopes are occupied with Indian bazaars and restaurants. The nearest broad gauge head is at Kalka - a four- to seven-hour journey from Delhi. After that, take the mountain train from Kalka to Shimla. This railway track has recently been granted the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

About Govind Ghat

We started with the night journey on 12th Sep, 2017 and boarded the bus from ISBT, Kashmere gate, New Delhi to Rishikesh, Uttarakhand at around 9:00 P.M. For others Train from NDLS to Haridwar is an alternate option which we didn’t choose. The journey of 5 to 6 hours to Rishikesh tickled every nerve, filling our mind and soul with excitement with each passing minute taking us near to nature’s lap. After reaching Rishikesh, we took the bus to Govindghat, a small town at a distance of 300 km in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand, India that was our first stopping point to start trekking. For the convenience of passionate trekkers like us, both local government bus (costing around 480 bucks) or private cabs (though expensive costs 14000 bucks both way) are available that takes around 10-11 hours to cover 300 km stretch of mountainous terrain. Due to tight pockets, we opted for government buses and reached Govindghat on 13th September, 2017 around 4:00 PM. A decent hotel with panoramic view (Hotel Bhagat) was already booked that facilitated hassle free stay. Pre booking and hot water facility were the prime things kept in mind to start trekking next day.
