Note: Travelling to shimla by Road is also a fun that I have experienced; there are 2 Ways which one can follow i.e., leave Early Morning from Delhi (preferable in Winter’s, avoid when there is so much FOG like in the period of Dec 20 till Jan 20 )around 5-6 AM , have breakfast at Murthal(Famous for Parantha’s) or Haveli……Follow Delhi-Chandigarh Highway which is one of the best highway. Reach Chandigarh in 4-5 hrs, then move further to Shimla via Kalka , solan ,kandaghat.

Or

Leave from Delhi in Late night (Preferable in Summers) around 11PM or 12 PM. If you want to have Dinner in between then leave around 9PM or 10 PM… Follow Delhi-Chandigarh Highway which is one of the best highway. Reach Chandigarh in 4-5 hrs, then move further to Shimla via Kalka , solan ,kandaghat . Travelling in night takes less time , one can reach Shimla in 6 or 7 Hours , if you don’t take much hault(break) in between your way.
