The best time to visit shimla!

Shimla. The queen of hills. With its pristine beauty and unpredictable weather, every day is a wonderful surprise. The sun is kind to us, and mostly gentle year round. Temperatures can come down to harsh terms with us around new year’s, but remain a vital characteristic that hold it all together. The culture, the agriculture, and the simple joy of being here.

Most people prefer shimla in the snow or in the springtime, but I enjoy another shade. Most commonly found right after the hot days of summer, are the rains that bring the temperature back down again. The clouds play their usual tricks and turn daytime almost into nighttime and bleaches the landscapes into a tinge of yellow. It’s a nice change, see!

And the feeling you get when you’re surrounded by so much whiteness is akin to happiness. It induces a state of calmness and fills you with a feeling of being complete. The only way to understand what I’m on about, is to experience it.
