A must visit during your stay in Shimla, best enjoyed while going to the top by horse riding, the garden and the view of nearing mountains is awesome. Don't forget to take snaps with apple tree so near to you.

"Great Hill view and Nature Park"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
You need to go there to enjoy the Nature Park with many adventure games in the area. A little bit costly though but the place and location makes it ok to pay. There is even Go Karting at that place. Enjoyed a lot.

Himalayan Park in Kufri is such a nice place to involve with natural beauty. A Shiva Mandir is also located at the top. You can have lots of adventures like Horse Riding and view of the Great China Wall.

"There are tall mountains, along with long pine trees"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Jul 7, 2014
Shimla is at a great height. There are tall mountains, along with long pine trees, greenery everywhere, which can touch your heart. People should never carry polybags in the whole of Himachal, since it is banned by the government.

"Food was the only relief"

  • 0.50/7
  • Posted Apr 14, 2014
Approach to this park is terrible. It's the famous park that we visited 10 years back which has totally vanished. The so called fun rides are awful and food was the only relief. The horse ride was worthless forgettable experience. I will never again visit this park neither I will advise anyone to do so. It is a total waste of time, money and energy.
