About Annandale and Glen

Located 4 kilometers from Ridge, a lively stream flows through the Glen forests at an altitude of 1830 meters. The dense forest is one of the most picturesque places in Shimla. This hidden place is a secluded picnic spot for the tourists. The way to Glen passes through the dense oak, deodar, and pine forest that add more charm to the beauty of Glen. If you go further, there is Annandale- a picnic spot that was previously the playgrounds of Shimla. Earlier it was used as racing, cricket and polo ground by the Britisher. The place got its name after the first arrival of British Lady Anna. The area is surrounded by a dense forest and contains an ancient Hindu temple on the edge. Annadale and Glen is a unexplored gem and a perfect spot for offbeat travellers.
