Shimla is the most touristy hill station ever. But this time, I took a solo trip to rediscover the Shimla that I had been visiting since I was 5 years old. I walked back and forth the mall road on the first day, visiting the Indian Coffee House, and my favorite Cafe: Wake & Bake. Also went to the Lower Bazaar and bought some cheap winter clothes. The variety is great, and the energy around this place is infectious.

On the second day, I took a cab to Naldehra, via Mashobra. Had the mandatory maggi at a small Dhaba in Mashobra, and then headed to Naldehra. Trekked till the Naldehra golf course. It was steep and muddy and horse-ridden, but fun, nevertheless. 

On the third day, I rented a cycle and went cycling around the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, and this is when I realized that nature really does have a way of liberating you. Post this, I took a bus and came back to the rut.

It is always vibrant and full of energy. With tourist attractions like the Clock Tower, Lover's Point, and Lower Bazaar, people go a little crazy!

A small town with an even smaller Dhaba! But scenic and photo-worthy, so yay!

The trek till the Naldehra golf course is filled with horse poop! But hey, a trek is a trek, right?

Cafe Shimla Times is one of the best mountain cafes I've been to. Lip smacking food with an eye smacking view!

Nature lovers, alert! The area near this Institute is lush green, and perfect for early morning cycling or an evening walk. Lovely breeze and sound of the woods! I bet you'd feel like Keats!
