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

The journey was comfortable. We enjoyed the toy train ride. It arrives in the morning at Kalka and takes around 2 hours to reach Shimla. From Shimla you can take plenty of cars on hire to the hotel. You will love the train passing by small stations. The toy train also halts at an intermediate stations for a break. Do not forget to get down and enjoy the valleys but get back in the train as it does not stops long.

During my first visit to Shimla for 3 days in June 2015, I opted to stay in this hotel. I took this decision after considering the fairly price room rent and reviews online. I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and I was satisfied. As I was not expecting too much considering the rent and reviews it...more »

We were a bunch of youngsters, set out to enjoy our new year in Himachal Pradesh. Our journey started from New Delhi, on a train. The journey was as usual, but because we were a group, we did a lot of masti. :P

We reached Kalka in the morning. Surprisingly, the train was on correct time. This was because tourists need to board Toy Train for Shimla.

Since it was winter, hence the weather was too chilly. We hadn't booked toy train tickets beforehand. This was a major mistake. A huge queue was gathered for the tickets. Finally we had no choice but to book a cab. If you are planning for this destination, it is advised to book Toy Train tickets online. :)

But, the cab ride was much interesting too. We experienced a beautiful and mesmerizing view of nature. The scenery was awesome. There was no snow in Shimla at that time.

We booked Hotel Gulmohar. And it is again much advised to book Hotels before the trip. It lessens the hassle and also you will pay lesser price online. The hotel was excellent with good service. The temperature was almost 0 degrees there. Hence, room service used to make tea outside of our room only, other wise it will cool off by the time the tea reaches us. :P

We were advised to turn on the Geysers 3 hours before bathing. But bathing was an impossible thing. But we did the impossible.

Our tour started with the Mall road. The crowd was excellent. You can't do much shopping there, but fruits. The brands you find there are everywhere, so it hardly matters.

Advisable places to visit: Mall Road Church, Hanuman Temple.

Mall Road church is a walking distance destination. But for Hanuman Mandir, you need to board a shared taxi which takes 10-20 rupees per person per side. You would find a lot of monkeys, so don't carry any eatables openly in your hands.

We went for the new year's eve, hence there were a lot of parties organized in clubs. We found a good one and got a huge discount afterwards for being the party poppers in the eve. :P

The next day, there was a live band organized near the church square. It was awesome.

We decided to go to Kufri. We took a cab ride and it took about 1. 5 hours for us to reach as there was ice on the roads. The weather forecasting declared it would snow. We were very excited. But the cabs won't take you to Kufri, but to a intermediate destination, where you can take a ride on Mules (hybrids of donkeys and horses) Because there are no roads for cars. The mule owners would ask for a huge amount but generally they settle for 150 per person.

This ride is adventurous in it's own way. The mules walk at the edge of the roads, which terrifies at some points. We saw snow when we reached there. There were several adventure spots with economical packages. But you can again bargain with them.

We made a huge snow man. Our hands and legs turned blue due to snow and ice. We enjoyed a lot. Returning to out hotel, the journey was coming to the end.

We were lucky to get tickets of toy train this time. The train experience was awesome and it's a must experiencing ride. :) The train runs at a speed of an average of 20 kmph. So you can get down any time. But it is not advised. :P Risky enough.

This was my trip and I enjoyed a lot. Hope my review helps! :)

If you are visiting Shimla from New Delhi I think this is the best train the Himalayan Queen. The departure from Sarai Rohilla Station, 5:45 am and arrival was at Kalka, 11:00 (Approx). I was travelling in second seating, AC chair car and we did pre-booking of tickets. The stoppages were Delhi Sarai Rohilla (departs), Sonipat, Panipat (30 min halt), Karnal, Kurukshetra, Ambala, Chandigarh (10 min halt), Chandi Mandir, Kalka (Destination). They provide catering food in this train.

It was wonderful. Our journey began from Delhi Hazrat Nizam station, the journey was fine till we reached Kalka in the morning because trains don't go to shimla so the broad gauge ends at Kalka and from there you have to take the narrow gauge trains available on a single track for both going and coming back.

Well we had a first class reservation so we got into the train on time after Kalka mail arrived. We boarded in the morning and the journey was splendid. It was beautiful. Once you are inside the train you will feel the clouds below you, you will feel like floating on the clouds and the tunnels keep coming in between along with the food they serve you from time to time. It's not a long journey though. You will not get bored. I am sure you will take a lot of pics in between. The clouds, the mountains, the greenery, the tunnels and the whistling steam engine. You will not get any plains there, so train will get very slow sometimes due to slopes in the tracks.
