Green Valley Overview

Ranked 10 of 40 sightseeing in Shimla
Green Valley is a picnic spot in Shimla, the summer capital of India during the British regime. It lies on National Highway 22, 7 km away from Shimla on the way to Kufri Hill station. This site is easily noticeable for those who are travelling from Shimla to Kufri. As the name suggests this valley surrounded by small mountains with pine forests is as green as one can imagine.
Many tourists use Green Valley as a stopover to relax and enjoy the landscaped valleys and mountains. A photography session is a must for the tourists at Green valley. A walk around the pine forest or just relaxing under the shades will help in rejuvenating yourself. Kufri hill station is close by where tourists can explore their scenic surroundings while horse riding. Yak riding is also famous here. Kufri Fun World and Himalayan Wild Life Zoo are nearby attractions. Nalderha Golf Course, Jakhu Temple, Hussan valley and Tatta Pani Springs are also worth a visit.
October to May is the best time to visit Green Valley. There are also some private home stays near the destination and it is also easily accessible from Shimla by local means of transport like taxis.

Not a worthy place to visit!

This place is located on the way to kufri from Shimla. Though there is nothing much to see except those usual hills & greens around, you will see few local people ready with their large binoculars and a list of 5 places which they will show you from that point (50rs per person) through the zoomed lenses. It's a waste of time & money, specially in summers. You may get good views in winters.There are few local shops & eateries too.Bought good quality kesar (saffron) at very cheap price from here which I think is the only good thing of this place.

Greenery evrywhere of trees

It's the spot from where entire deodar tree's are seen and it's totally green. The spot is beside the Highway of Kufri. Any tourists vehicle's are spotted and lot of people are present at the spot.Binoculars are available for seeing the distant valley views. A good site for photography as tr background would be splendid.It's the colour of tree's which give the spot the name. Eatables are available but are too costly.A place where 20 mins can be spent easily enjoying the views.

An average place to visit

The place is surrounded with green mountains. There is greenery everywhere. Nothing else to do. A visit can last for only 10 minutes. No activities on the site. But there are people available with telescope and they show you some points. Nice place for clicking photographs.
