Day 2

Woke up at 7:30 in the morning then get ready for kufri
We hired a local cab for kufri (INR 800 up and down including all taxes and parking)
We took clothes and shoes on rent(INR 700) for snow and reached to the base site of kufri.
From there we reached to the ski point on horses (INR 500) - *booking horses are useless because it's just 10min walk if you go from another side and it's too risky during down my mate fell down from the horse*
We had alot of fun in snow and we had package of ski and tube ride( INR 1000 for ski and 300 for tube ride) both were totally useless I would suggest don't go for it too
Then we came back to the base site and visited adventure park which was useless for us because that was just an amusement park and we're not interested in that
After that we visited to the IIAS (Indian Institute of Advance Study) which was very beautiful as it was made for viceroy of Indian in A.D. 1888 it's entry closes at 4:00pm so be careful and it's closed on monday
Then we had dinner at SOL one of the best restaurant in Shimla and came back to the hotel
