Tours & Activities in Shimla
The best way to see and get to know Shimla is to explore it on foot. You are going to have a great day with me as a historian and lover of Shimla. "Shimla is not a very old city. It was only two thousand years ago when the British officers moved into the hills to fight the Gurkha army who were making constant invasions in this area. After that, Shimla never looked back. The The British began using it as their retreat, then it became a sanatorium and then the Summer Capital.A small village originally called Shimlu or Shyamalaya that had no connection to the outside world became the seat of power of the Imperial Government.Today Shimla it is a world tourist map and it is also a base for high altitude trek in the Indian Western Himalayas The journey to the hidden valley of the Trans Himalayas region starts from here and otherwise if you are a keen trekker and explorer then well worth it worth spending a week here visit: Christ Church, The Ridge, Gaiety Theatre, Scandal Point, Imperial Bank, Railway Board Building, Gorton Castle, Cecil Hotel Viceregal Lodge.
