Itinerary:
Day 1

Delhi-Shimla

Mountains with trees littered across them, hairpin roads and cool breeze, these things welcome you as soon as you enter Himachal Pradesh. Even the views on the roadside are so enchanting that you dare not take your eyes off of them, the curiosity seldom let you do so. With every turn you enter deep in mountains and the breeze become colder and colder and the roads become narrower. The feeling itself is great. It is polar opposite of what you feel when you travel in planes. If you are travelling for the first time on this route then you’ll have this feeling of suspense and excitement of what might come next. When you get tired of travelling you can always stop by a ‘Dhaba’ and have a glass of hot tea. It makes you cozy and comfortable even on that wooden bench. And you’ll feel the actual luxury of travelling.  Imagine being with your significant other amidst nature and the best Shimla Manali tour. With this amazing feeling you’ll enter Shimla.  Beauty will increase with every passing second. And temperature will start to decrease. When you look around you could see the mountains of Shimla  hill covered with lush green trees. Soon you’ll reach Shimla and will be checking in the hotel.

Day 2:

Shimla

Going sightseeing in Shimla is an adventure in itself. The best way to explore Shimla is walking. Take it easy and take a stroll. With its vehicle-free streets, Shimla invites you to take things at a leisurely pace. If you enjoy walking, then you’ll definitely love Shimla. As its main street is an east-west pedestrian called ‘The Mall’. Here, you find you’ll find yourself in the middle of what looks like a traditional English town, with its little shops and larger buildings in Tudor, Victorian and Edwardian styles.  If you get tired, you can stop for a rest at the Ridge, a hilltop plaza. It is an ideal spot for contemplating the sweeping views of the mountains and valleys. From here you’ll find every spot picture perfect. Ridge is crowned by Christ Church. The stately yellow edifice features tall, arched stained- glass windows surrounded by fresco and inside, tablets commemorate British officers and citizen’s of the colonial period.  Then you’ll see Gaiety Theatre. You can go to Summer hill via local taxi and visit Advance Studies. A beautiful building with Victorian architecture.
