Once known as Shyamala, synonymous with Goddess Kali, Shimla has been a summer retreat long before India even gained independence. This famous hill station similarly has a lot of places and things to see untouched by time. For instance, take a vintage joy ride from Kalka station to Shimla in a charming toy train that will take you through towering Deodars, hills and villages. Shimla truly comes alive during winters when a blanket of snow covers it all over making every nook and corner gleam and glisten. One such place is the ice skating rink (natural ice) near Lakkar Bazaar that opens from November to December. More winter sports include skiing, which can be enjoyed 21 km from Shimla in Kufri. Adventure activities such as rafting at Tattapani or a trek to Shali Tibba and Pabbar Valley are also worthwhile experiences. If you are fond of haunted stories and interested in having your own spooky adventure, you'll love Shimla. A lot of people including the renowned Rudyard Kippling (in 'My Own True Ghost Story) have written various eerie stories set around Shimla. A place known most for giving many people the jeepers-creepers is the Charleville Mansion. Another time travelling portal is the antique bookstore, Marina Brothers, located on Mall Road, which is truly a reader and collector's paradise. There are many luxury and budget hotels here, meaning you'll never fall short of options. Popular places to eat include Wake & Bake, Ashiana, Cecil and Minchy's that serve commendable Indian and multi-cuisine dishes and delicious gourmet food.

About Hanuman Chatti

The next morning give your feet a good massage, because it is another 6 hour trek downhill to Hanuman Chetti. It will take you through dense forests with snake plants and blue pines, uprooted trees that make for bridges, it will make you cross paths with the migrating herders and villages with breath taking beautiful views. Crossing the forest is the tricky part, where you can (and we did) get lost. But once you reach the villages, the stone paths are laid down in front of you right down to Hanuman Chetti. You would reach Hanuman Chetti by evening between 4 to 5 pm, and you must treat yourself to aloo parathas at one of the lodges or dhabas, for having completed the trek. From Hanuman Chetti, taxis and bus services are available to Dehradun from where a connecting bus can be taken to New Delhi, but these start only in the morning. So the best way to end the trek is to let yourself stay in the majestic Himalayas for one more night; Hanuman Chetti has a few lodges that will give you rooms for the night at ₹400 per room for a night. After 4 nights of sleeping on slopes and rocks, you will find the beds too comfortable to wake up early to catch the 6am bus to Dehradun. The journey will take around 6 hours, and the leaves on the trees will get thicker, while the layers of clothes on yourself, thinner. From Dehradun, comfortable air conditioned buses are available at around ₹700 per ticket (or we were just lucky; be mentally prepared to travel in semi deluxe or non- AC too, if you plan to reach Delhi the same day). The journey to Delhi will be completed in a span of 6-8 hours, depending upon the traffic once you enter Delhi.
