Oh i love to hear about ghosts and horror stories and these seem to be really good ones. My question is that, is these stories real or just like the other spooky grandmother tales? I have been to Shimla recently but sadly could not visit any of the Haunted places in Shimla.

Okay now I have become really curious after reading all these stories. Can you tell us more about the Haunted places in Shimla and restrictions we need to follow before visiting these? Are these places dangerous really or are these simple tourist hacks?

I am sure none of these haunted stories of Shimla are actually true. These are all baseless and have never been proved just like the ones that we have heard about Rajasthan. No doubt these are really interesting and entertaining but not ones to get me all spooked up.

Well! You are right about tour analysis on the categories of people. Well I am one unique category I feel and a fusion of people who love listening to the stories and then get attracted to these places too. Are these haunted stories of Shimla true or are just rumours to attract tourists?
