The former summer capital of the British in India and the present capital of Himachal Pradesh – Shimla is blessed with the best of nature’s bounties. Surrounded by cool wooded hills and dotted with stately buildings of the colonial era, Shimla creates an aura which is very different from that found in other hill stations in India. The stately Viceregal Lodge, the happening Mall, and Scandal Point are some of the pales of tourist interest in the city.
