The road that we took to Shimla starting from new Delhi was just an unforgettable journey of our life, I travelled with my group of friends, now after leaving from newdelhi we crossed 100-150 kms crossing Harayna and more ahead then theres no words to express how I felt, seeing those might himalayan valleys and mountains, hills the risk taking roads too ., but still I bet you shall go for it, its just a worth visiting. When you come even for closer to Shimla town you may experience a snow fall. Actually I and my friends experienced a heavy snow fall that never happened in Shimla in 5 years before.

Shimla is well connected with road ways. Though the hill train also go there, but that is quite time taking. Best possible way to reach Shimla is to take bus from Delhi as there are ;numbers of bus operators. Most of them operates overnight journey but if have much time and want to explore its beauty at best then I would suggest you to go Kalka first and then take toy train to Shimla. Kalka to Shimla take 6 hours in toy train passes through beautiful tunnels and valleys.

A very awesome journey on the small tracks connecting Kalka to Shimla with the amazing views arriving after the Solan station and under passing through the 103 tunnels on the route.

We enjoyed a lot watching the beautiful scenery in our journey and really got entertained in the 5 hours journey.

Watching the tracks which we can cross in just one step was totally a new thing to our mind which enthusiast us more for our adventure.

All over the journey was very through the train just you need to be prepared for your food on your own and you must be enjoying the views in the journey
