We always knew Shimla as a queen of hills and love to Explore, when we require a break from hectic journey's of life. Mostly newly wed couples, young groups and families. Snow clapped mountains added the attraction. But a same tranquilizer do not work for long time, same is the case with shimla . As the tourists are shunning the capital of Hills, it bounces back in new avtar, Now people who wants to party and enjoy can look forward to shimla.


Shimla is offering a basket full of options now. Recent example is the New year celeberations, matching any big metros to bolster the already jubliant moods of Tourist. The Pyrotechnics display and music not only enthrals the whole shimla but make the shimla a place to initiate a new year in cold and cozy environs . See the vedio to belive it. Dont miss the celeberations next time.


Well connected with flights, roads and historic toy train to make the oddyssey a memorable one
