Nice experiance in train. We started our journey from Vadodara upto Chandigarh. Train is quite clean and well-maintained. After reaching Chandigarh we board a rickshaw for Kalka. From Kalka we took toy train for Shimla. We spend two days and three night in Shimla. Weather was awesome in Jan end.

It was okay okay because the road of Shimla was too dangerous and it was difficult to drive. But weather wise its good. It was awesome and I can't explain it and we enjoyed a lot. Horse riding was also fabulous.

Had travelled by own car by afternoon but might be good to travel early morning or by night, roads are good enough to travel and journey is quite comfortable. We reached Shimla on 18th Oct, 2014 by evening and stayed there till 25th Oct, 2014. We reached and located our hotel which was Hotel Samrat Regency. I travelled with my friends and we spent some quality time there.
