Its great travelling in the bus. It is a well conditioned bus and we booked the seat in the front row. Staff of the bus is awesome and they are treating us politely. They make my journey amazing and enjoyable. Shimla snowfall and natures beauty must be memorable through out of life.
Shatabdi as usual was on time and I got the connecting train from Kalka to Shimla, which was one of the greatest experience. People were shouting while crossing tunnels, scenery outside was excellent. Took return tickets from Shimla to Kalka to live the experience once again.
This place is rich with its vast beauty. It has a complete package of nature and adventure. Travelling by car was a great way to enjoy the monumental beauty and road side food and cuisines. It was a long and tiresome road journey but definitely a fun one.
