Things to do in Shimla

Cascading down from a height of 86 mts, this waterfall is a nature lover’s dream; especially during dawn. The trek to the falls is highly recommended as it passes through the glistening Glen Forest. This dreamy spot is a must if you’re a nature lover.
If a 360 view of the snow capped mountains is what you are looking for, head to Shaily Peak which is about 44 km away from Shimla and perched at 9500 ft. You can get a full panoramic view of Shimla, Mashobra, Kufri, Fagu and Narkanda from this point.
A haven for nature photographers and peace lovers, Green Valley or Hassan Valley provides many hiking trails to experience its tranquil and verdant surroundings. Embark on this adventure that will satisfy all your wanderlust.
Known for its occasional leopard spotting, Kiala forest is located a bit away from Shimla in the Kotkhai Valley. It is a splendid woodland with plenty of walking and hiking trails to choose from. Another example of why this destination is a dream destination for thrill-seekers.
The best way to cure a day’s tiredness is to soak in the Tattapani hot water springs right on the banks of the Sutlej. These gushing streams — naturally enriched with sulphur — are relaxing and believed to have many medicinal properties.
