Blessed with some of the most spectacular and beautiful landscapes Shimla is one of the most famous tourist destinations of India in the state of Himachal Pradesh and one of the choicest honeymoon destination in India.
Shimla is one of the many hill stations that the British established to escape from the scorching heat of the plains in India and soon the little village of Shymala, a retreat for British officers, grew to become the glamorous summer capital of the British and now capital of Himachal Pradesh. Shimla abounds in natural beauty and looks picture perfect. The small hill station amidst the lofty snow-clad Himalayan ranges, surrounded by lakes and lush green pastures look as though an artist has painted them. The unique thing about Shimla is that it still retains its colonial charm and this creates an ambience that is not found anywhere else in India. Shimla is one tourist destination that can be visited any time during the year. Summers are warm with cool and pleasant evenings while winters are bone chilling and the temperatures can fall below zero. But this difference is what makes Shimla all the more special!
