HolidayIQ Traveller Rohan Da says, “This place is certainly like heaven on earth! It is a small place situated on a single road. Has a nice little market with lots of collectibles. One of the main points to look out for is the Dharamshala bus stand, the view from there is simply breathtaking and is also the connection to Mcleodganj which is at a higher altitude. The people here are very hospitable and kind. One of the good restaurants this place is known for is, Midtown. Calm restaurant with some nice food. If you're on a Himachal trip, you cannot miss this!”

HolidayIQ Traveller Bhumika Mishra says, “My trip to Shimla was a family get together and one of the very memorable. The long evening walks from the mall to our hotel and the small restaurants, the local momos were awesome. Coupled with treks to Jakhu and the viceroy's lodge and all the heritage buildings was very educative. We went in the summers and the weather was very pleasant and the people were really friendly. The only thing that was slightly irritating was the traffic jams and so I would recommend to go to nearby places on foot rather than taking a car.”

7. Kolkata
