If you are a nature lover with adventurous spirit, and you wish to explore the treasures of North India, then you should go on a Shimla tour. Shimla is the most beautiful hill station in Himachal Pradesh. It is located in the foothills of mighty Himalayas whose snow covered peaks are forming unforgettable landscape. Often referred to as the Queen of Hill Stations, Shimla has an important place in the Himachal tourism offer. Every year, thousands of tourists visit this exotic place to absorb the true beauty and tranquillity that only nature has to offer.

Shimla tours are becoming more and more popular- the main reason being the wide spectrum of activities you can enjoy together with extraordinary natural beauty. Shimla tour packages are recommended for those who love the adrenaline rush, as they can enjoy mountaineering, skiing and ice skating during winter months, or rock climbing, camping and rafting during warmer months. For those who love trekking, Shimla is offering several treks and you can pick those that fit your endurance and time table. Shimla is very often chosen as honeymoon destination as it gives everything a newly wedded couple can wish for- peace, beauty and many places to wonder around and explore together.

When to visit Shimla, and how to get there
