Re: Delhi to Shimla !

it was a 3 days trip sufficient for a place like shimla


we reached there at around 13:00..and looked for a hotel..

we stayed at "the Leela Regency " hotel..



the reason we stayed at this hotel : it was near the mall road..
: it had parking facility..


now a days there are very few parking spots available in any hill station..so where ever you go...make sure the hotel has parking of its own..

we had the lunch at the hotel only and the food was quite good but was less tastier than delhi's food

Re: Delhi to Shimla !

Places to Eat [clap]

we had our dinner at Goofa Bar and Restaurant..

the food was nice but if you are lucky you'll get your food before an hour..it took 1 and a half our for the dinner to arrive and onother 1 hour to eat our dinner we kept on waiting and waiting [anger]



another place which the local people recommended - baljees and new plaza but we ate at domino's [:D] dint want to take any chance..



Shimla at night








if you want to master your driving skills, go to shimla [;)]

the road from shimla to kufri is very bad..i mean we cant even call it a road..

i dont have pics cause i was driving but you can imagine what i'm saying..

the car's speed was not more than 20 km..

and i experienced off roading in my i10 hehe..

the diversions on the highway (pic below) all helped me to add to my knowledge of driving

overall the trip was fantastic.. [:D]

thanks[:)] there were mostly students there. i mean at first i thought whats this. shimla had changed a lot. so it seemed new to me.
there are many institutions there so that's why shimla was full of teens.

aah its been 7 months , i can't recall the hotel room's :D but it was not at all bad rather better than expected. i'll search some more pics.

Don't forget i'm from delhi too [anger] roads are even worse here. i went to shimla on my i10 , can't wait to take my verna out of delhi. excited.

aah i know such place. dhenaulty , i think this is a place after mussoorie. we just went there unaware of the road conditions and it was a torture :(
and just like you said only 1 car could pass. and we got stuck there many times just to let some truck pass. not at all a good experince.

my friend studies at the HR institute there , so i asked him about the restraunts :D
unfortunately he was in delhi so coudn't check out all the places. ya , will surely update here in this community if i plan to go anywhere :)

great going buddy !!!

How much did the hotel cost you per night ?
aah i think it was some 1800rs for one room a night. its been 7 months[lol]
but the hotel was nice. and as i mentioned above it had its own parking and mall road was just 10-15 minutes walk.

seriously if i ever went to shimla i'll stay at this hotel.

you don't want to take a hotel far away from the mall road because then you have to park at the shimla's parking lot. thousand of cars are parked their. and when i first saw it i was glad that i don't need to park here. it was so crowded/[confused]

Guys after looking at your travelogues it looks like now I too will have to start clicking and collecting pics too.

@Allhyundaicars:
Fantastic travelogue it is.There are some destinations that I frequently visit which include:-
Shimla,Badrinath,Gangotri,Manali,Jwala ji etc etc and what I feel is that the hilly roads are still quite driveable.At least there you have to think only of your car while here we have to think of other vehicles too which can dent us even if we take even a slight cut.

And yes,the last speedo click is too contrary to your signature.Still I'd say such speeds are more than dangerous for the cars like i10 etc etc.So take care of your car,these cars are for driving,not for pushing(Although I too once crossed 165 in a Kappa2:stupid:)..

My next Jwala Ji trip is about to come and this time I'll too click a lot of pics..
