Shimla

“Traveling. It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”

                                                              – Ibn Battua 

I did more this November than the whole dame year. Hell of a way to catch up to life after a setback. 

The grand family tour of 2016 – 

Day 1 From Kolkata to Delhi via Rajdhani Express. Boarding time – 5:00pm

The sights on the way to shimla via the Himalayan Queen( Kalka- shimla Toy Train) are simply stunning.In the year 2008 Kalka–Shimla Railway became part of the World Heritage Site Mountain Railways of India  alongside Darjeeling Himalayan Railway , Nilgiri Mountain Railway and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus

 

When the train stopped at Koti ( not an official halt) almost everyone was down enjoying the view. Originally 107 tunnels were built on Kalka Shimla Railway Track while today only 103 tunnels are operational.

The schedule halt at Barog comes right after the train passes through the longest tunnel which is 1143.61m long. Barog tunnel is the straightest tunnel in the World .The little station named after colonel Barog has an interesting story behind it. 

Barog  commenced digging the tunnel from both sides of the mountain, to speed up construction. However, he made mistakes in his calculation and while constructing the tunnel, the two ends of the tunnel did not meet. Barog was fined an amount of 1 Rupee by the British government. Unable to withstand the humiliation, Barog committed suicide and was buried near the incomplete tunnel. The area came to be known as Barog after him.

Day 4 – Kufri, Shimal mall.

 

Grand hotel is located  close to the Shimla Mall. The mall road is dotted with several cafes including the India Coffee House and several other amazing places. 

We Started for Kufri a view point near shimla in the morning. Horse ride is the only way to reach the view point.

Tourism is highly commercialized in Himachal Pradesh and the steady stream of tourist has driven up the prices. The beauty of Kufri was dimmed by the number of people trying to make money from horse rides, telescope view of peaks, photos with yak (which are specifically brought to Shimla for commercial purpose only) and surprisingly  even apple orchard. Apple trees and private orchards are common sight in Shimla. 

 

The Shimla skyline from scandal Point, lit up like a thousands stars on the hills. Perfect place to spend the evening.
