Weekend Getaways from Lato 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,April,May,June,October,November,December
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 Lato

TanglangLa is very unlike any other pass. It does not give you an option to gain altitude in switchbacks but teases you with long-long-long sections of constant gradient climbs that go on forever. One can see the destination at all times and it may fool you with a sense that it is just a touch away, but the reality being- it is a long hard laborious climb from the base. Starting from Debring, the climb is immense and TanglangLa is the 2nd highest motorable road in the world. Once you reach the top at 17,582ft , the downhill from that point beyond has to be the best on the trip till Leh. The scenic beauty is unmistakable and out of this world. From there on, you cross the small villages named Rumtse and Gya, to finally reach Lato. Lato being at an altitude of 13,400ft the total distance covered is about 56kms from Debring.
