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 Padum

Day 5 & 6 - We had to rest at padum for a day due to off-roading :P . Went to monastery nearby.We had to walk to reach the place after riding.At such altitudes walking over 1-2 kms will be so tiring to level of 10 kms.The view of padum city from the top is beautiful !! I'm novel freak,Started novel Stone Cold by David Baldacci in this beautiful place. The next day we are on our way back to kargil at 6:30 am.Now that we are mentally prepared for the ride we are going to do,road didnt scare us anymore. You pass by Penzila Pass Height (14000 ft) Almost reaching Kargil, back tyre of my bike was wobbling and bike started to skid evrytime the brakes are applied. For 2 hours,This scared the shit out of me ( this is the moment the trip felt risky and adventurous ;) ). later we de-routed karsekhara were you can find the tallest rock statue of buddha in the world named "Chamba Rock Statue ".Reached Kargil around 6:30 pm. Stay at kargil- Rangyul
