5 Star Hotels In ShimlaSearch Hotel By Name:
The erstwhile summer capital of British and treasured all over the globe as the ‘Queen of Hill Stations’, Shimla (Simla) is an exceptionally popular vacation retreat of India. Nestled at an altitude of about 2205 meters in the north-west Himalayan ranges amidst the forests flourishing with pine, cedar, rhododendron, and oak trees, Shimla, the present capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh is perhaps the most sought after hill resort of India equally loved by the honeymooners as well as the nature lovers and travelers. First discovered by a British Officer Lt. Rose, during the Gorkha War, Shimla almost wholly owes its disposition to British who turned this trivial layover on the way to the temple of Goddess Shyamala into an applauded holiday escape of a subcontinent. The enchanting aura of Shimla differs from all other hill stations of the country. Shimla is a conurbation reckoned for its Victorian, Tudorbethan and Neo-Gothic order of architecture, which still reminds us of the colonial era in India. The historical Kalka-Shimla Railway Route, one of the longest narrow gauge railway routes still operational in India links Shimla with Kalka. This dandy hill resort perched amidst the lofty snow-crowned Himalayan ranges and endowed with infinite natural beauty and salubrious climate is indeed a paradise descended on the earth. The pleasant cold summers and the snowy winters of Shimla fascinate its visitors to no extend. Imperial snow capped mountains, peachy little lakes and verdant green landscapes together create such a picturesque panorama that its looks like an artist’s dream come true in its real sense.
