Activities In shimla

If you are coming to Shimla with India tour packages, then you will have loads to do. From sightseeing and cultural exploration to adventure sports and peaceful picnics, the Himalayan city offers numerous ways for you to have fun with your family, friends or significant other. Here is a guide on how to make a holiday in Shimla truly blissful.
Revisit the Colonial Era
Most pages of the history of Shimla are dedicated to the British rule, as it was the summer capital of the imperial administration prior to the Indian independence. Shimla was developed as a hill station by high-ranking British officials to get relief from the scorching summers of the northern plains. Numerous colonial edifices in and around the city are testimonials to the glory of Shimla during that era.
Out of all the colonial buildings here, the Jacobethan-style Viceregal Lodge or Rashtrapati Niwas is the most famous one. In addition to its architecture, you can admire a collection of articles and photographs dating from the British era. Besides, the iconic Christ Church and St Mary's Church are also acclaimed for their astounding architecture. You can also head to the Neo-Gothic Rothney Castle in the Jakhu Hill region.
While exploring Shimla, you will find several Victorian-style buildings in and around the Ridge. Culture enthusiasts can also make their way to the stunning Kotkhai Palace, known for its pagoda-style roof and awe-inspiring wood carvings.
Relax in the Lap of Nature
Although the whole of Shimla is blessed by Mother Nature, a few designated sites here deserve a visit if you want to closely experience the spellbinding beauty of the region. The richness of these places in terms of flora and fauna also makes them great spots for photography.
You can plan a picnic by the picturesque Chadwick Falls or enjoy hiking through the Glen. Bird watchers can observe numerous species, including the famous Himalayan monal, at Himalayan Bird Park. Densely packed with oak, deodar and pine trees, Kiala Forest and the Dhillon Pond area are other two sites, where you can admire the lushness, and spot Himalayan birds and animals. Apart from picnicking amidst sprawling greenery, you can watch polo and golf events at the beautiful Annandale.
Spending a whole day at the pristine Shimla Reserve Forest Sanctuary can be a rewarding experience for both nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts. A train journey aboard Kalka-Shimla Railway would definitely leave you mesmerised.
Seek Blessings at Shrines
You can pay homage to Lord Hanuman at the prominent Jakhu Temple and Sankat Mochan Temple. Besides, Kamna Devi Temple, Laxminarayan Temple and Kali Bari Temple can also be visited to offer prayers.
Reflecting the Tibetan influences over Shimla, the renowned Dorje Drak Monastery or TDAC Nyingmapa Monastery is also worth a visit. While relaxing in the peaceful environs of the monastery, you can appreciate its stunning Buddhist architecture.
Know the History and Culture of Shimla
Located in a heritage building, the Himachal State Museum can be visited to admire an impressive collection of handicrafts, paintings, coins, sculptures and photographs. You can also head to the Victorian-style Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex, which once served as a popular social club for British officials. This theatre complex stands as a symbol of the artistic excellence of British India.
You can see articles like cutlery, glassware and clocks from the early 20th-century trains on the Kalka-Shimla Railway at the Baba Bhalku Railway Museum. Exhibiting a rare collection of photographs of Shimla prior to independence, the Shimla Heritage Museum is a must visit for travellers, who want to travel back in time.
Embrace your Adventurous Side
The hilly topography of Shimla and the surrounding dense forests offer innumerable opportunities for high-thrill activities. Adventurous souls from all across the country and abroad arrive in Shimla to enjoy activities like camping, mountain biking and paragliding.
The daring can also go for extreme sports like river rafting on the rapids of the Sutlej River. Moreover, if you happen to visit Shimla in winters, then you can indulge in activities like ice skating, skiing and heli-skiing.
Shop at Local Markets
The well-known Mall Road is lined with a bevy of retail stores, souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes, whereas Lakkar Bazar has numerous shops that sell wooden handicrafts. Besides, you can also head to the lively Lower Bazaar, Tibetan Market and the famous Himachal Emporium. A map of Shimla would come in handy, if want to locate these on your own.
So, choose the best Shimla packages to avoid missing out on any of these activities.
