Shimla – Day 3

Today we took an optional tour, driving in taxis further up into the mountains through the amazing Kufri countryside of Upper Shimla.

We stopped at a viewpoint in the tiny village of Fagu.

The Himalayas
The only way to travel!

We drove on to Wildflower Hall, a luxury hotel constructed on the site of the former summer residence of Lord Kitchener, where we had lunch.

There are leopards in the forests surrounding the hotel

We drove back to Shimla, a hair raising experience. The roads are narrow and winding and very busy. We passed through many villages, none of which have pavements. There were a few near misses but no one was injured!

Back in Shimla

Tomorrow we travelling back to Delhi, by taxis and train.

I think we will miss Shimla
