Shimla Packages FAQs

Q. When can I see snow in Shimla?
A. Going through a bunch of Shimla packages for a winter holiday in the hill station can be tedious, but just as you zero in on one ensure it gives you enough glimpse of snow. Shimla is covered in a white blanket between mid-December and early February and the perfect time to enjoy your year-end holiday, celebrate a white Christmas and bring in the New Years. Snowfall, frequent hailstorm, intermittent rains and raging winds mark the days, and it is great pleasure walking around the Mall, participating in the winter carnival in such an atmosphere. Ice-skating and skiing very popular in this season as the temperature hovers between 8 and 0 degree Celsius. You can even visit the nearby areas like Kufri, Mashobra, Narkanda among others. Carrying layers of woollens, caps, gloves and thick boots are essential to withstand a snowy Shimla winter.


Q. Which is the best time to visit Shimla in the summer?
A. There are several Shimla tour packages that aim at bringing the summer tourist from the plains. But it is imperative to know the peak season for summer travels to Shimla. Shimla in the months between March and June offer a perfect respite from the heat of the plains with the temperatures lingering between 15 and 30 degree Celsius. The days are warm and pleasant with a cool breeze blowing in from the mountains and breaking a quick hot spell. It is the time adventure activities in and around Shimla gather steam. Go trekking, paragliding, white water rafting, camping. If not, walk around Shimla’s vibrant Mall Road, eat at its cafes, visit the Lakkad Bazaar, the iconic Christ Church, Jakhu Temple and the Tara Devi Temple, and soak up the atmospherics of this erstwhile colonial hill station.


Q. What are the adventure activities I can pursue in Shimla?
A. For an adventure enthusiast, just any of the Shimla travel packages won’t do. Your itinerary needs to cater to your desire for the adrenaline. Shimla has some avant-garde trekking slopes on the Himalayan ranges. A popular mountain trek is to the Tara Devi Temple nestled on a hilltop. Begin from the Tara Devi Railway Station and climb 4 kilometre uphill to the temple. You can go rafting on the Satluj River. A 12-kilometre stretch starting from Chabba and winding up in Tattapani, it is a haven for white-water enthusiasts. December to February is the time for ice-skating where you have powdery snow, crisp air and clear skies to take on some of Shimla’s extensive ice-skating zones. Places like Mahasu Ridge in Kufri and Hattu Peak in Narkanda offer perfect skiing slopes for the skiing enthusiasts. For some golfing, head to Shimla’s oldest golf course in Naldehra. Mountain bicycling and paragliding are among your other adventure sport options.


Q. What is the local language of Shimla?
A. Shimla is highly multilingual. The locals and shopkeepers understand and speak in both Hindi and English; English partly for its colonial heritage and since the advent of tourism to the hill station. Otherwise the local population speaks Pahari and Punjabi. So, as long as tourists can communicate in either English or Hindi, they can easily get by in Shimla.


Q. Which is the nearest airport to Shimla?
A. The Shimla Airport located in Jubbarhatti, about 22 kilometre from main Shimla is the primary airport of the hill station. The airport operates limited flights between New Delhi and Shimla with Alliance Air and Air India being the only airlines operating direct flights between the two destinations. Such a flight takes 1 hour 10 minutes to complete the journey, though it may not be available on all days of the week.


Q. Which is the monsoon season in Shimla?
A. The Shimla monsoons last between July and August and partially spill into the first week of September when the building low-pressure over the Thar Desert lashes the hill station will intense rains. The conditions gently peter out by mid-September. The evenings can be chilly and rains could derail your sightseeing plans. The hill slopes are prone to landslide, several shops and cafes stay shut much of the time, and owing to the gathering nip and lack of activity there is a general dip in tourist footfalls. You cannot go on hikes or treks, and adventure activity of any kind come to a halt. And you can’t even walk about the town or get any photographs.


Q. Are there sufficient ATMs across Shimla?
A. There are enough ATMs scattered across Shimla making it very easy to withdraw money and cutting down your need to carry excessive cash. You will find ATMs by Co-operative Bank, Axis Bank, ICICI Bank, IDBI Bank, Central Bank of India, Canara Bank, State Bank of India, UCO Bank, Union Bank of India, and Punjab National Bank to name a few.
