Driving on hills are adventurous

Nov 5, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

Shimla from Chandigarh which is about 120 km is no doubt pleasant it hardly takes 3:30 hours. But when it comes to traffic on hilly roads of Shimla you have to wait about 90 minutes on an average to travel the 25-30km stretch.

2 major problems of shimla
1. Water scarcity
2. Parking problem

Good roads; Himalayan expressway deserves applause

Nov 2, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

Journey began from Chandigarh. The road from Panchkula is hassle free. Well maintained roads.Then first toll starts at Himalayan expressway. This expressway is better than many expressways on plains. The view is terrific. Just before Kasauli visiting "Giani da dhaba" is a must. Right from the end of expressway to the start of Shimla roads are very well maintained. All types of cars can move without any problems. But make sure your car has enough power to climb on sloppy roads.

Awesome moment

Nov 2, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

Best time to travel is morning time, when you enjoy a nature beauty more. Travel by own car if you really wanna enjoy beauty of nature in hills and have time then recommend to travel by Toy Train which takes 5-8 hrs from Kalka to Shimla. Advice to book in advance which go through several tunnels around 100 tunnels short and small.
