The Christ Church on Mall Road against a stunning backdrop of mighty peaks is probably a universal identifier of Shimla, but there is a lot more to this hill station.

With remnants of past still evident amidst hilly terrains scented by pine trees and colonial-era architecture, Shimla draws tourists year after year.

The British turned the town into their summer resort owing to its captivating natural beauty. Today, it is one of most aesthetically planned cities in India and home to many attractions- be it the famous Chadwick Falls or Jakhoo Hills.

A drive to nearby Kufri is a surreal experience; the road is bordered by a thick canopy of forests while exotic birds like pheasants and partridges perch atop the branches. The neighboring Mashobra is home to rare flora- oak, cedar, rhododendron, maple and horse chestnut.

Sterling Castle, Rothney Castle and Visceral Lodge are other beautiful hauntings of past that make Shimla an idiosyncratic hill station.
