Liked:

I can never forget my visit to Shimla this year around February. It was a perfect climate there and I stayed there for 3 days there at my friend’s grandparents house which is situated far away from the main crowded part of Shimla. I had a really great time at the Mall Road shopping all the beautiful things! It was less crowded as I went there during the off season. We also took the famous toy train there to Kalka where we enjoyed the scenic locations, perfect for photography. It crossed over 100 tunnels and our whole experience there was wonderful and full of sweet memories.

Tips:

You can also plan to visit Kufri which is just 13 Km away from Shimla. Avoid visiting there during peak seasons like May and June, also avoid the rainy season.
