Pine forests and apple orchards, crisp, clean air and breathtaking views - that's Shimla in a nutshell. Sprawled over 12 kms on a crescent shaped ridge, Shimla is the largest hill station and erstwhile summer capital of the British in India. Descending in layers from the top of the ridge at 2,213 metres, Shimla straddles several hills including Jakhu, Prospect Hill, Observatory Hill, Elysium Hill and Summer Hill. Shimla is a tourist paradise throughout the year. The town itself is worth a visit in the off-season when it is less crowded and can be explored to masimum extent. In the season, most of the hotels (around 1000) in Shimla are filled to capacity and getting a room in a hotel in Shimla can be ardous task. They worship the goddess Shakti and one can see small temples on hillsides, in valleys, on peaks and ridges. These hillsides are known by the name of the goddess / god itself. The interior part of Shimla district gives one a fine view of how rural or rather real hillside folks live like. The district offers something to all kinds of visitors. The young, the old, the writers, adventurers, nature lovers and peace lovers can all find their bit of heaven here.
