India – Day 6: Return to Delhi

We left Shimla to return to Delhi, saying our goodbyes to the friendly staff and local residents.

The first part of the journey was a hair raising 4 hour drive down the mountain, through hair pin bends. I think driving a taxi is an extreme sport in this area!

We stopped for a break half way.
Local businesses were opening up.

We arrived in Chandigarh and boarded the train for Delhi.

Not allowed on the platform!

Eventually we arrived back in Delhi and got a coach back to the Taj Palace.

  1. The view from the hotel looks amazing! Will you get to have a dip in the pool? hehe
    Sounds like you are keeping very busy, hope you are enjoying it so far! x

  2. Hi Carol and Andy,
    I sympathise about the drive down the mountain in the taxi. Anders and I once had a similar experience in a taxi from Kuala Lumpur to the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia… there was a lot of beeping of horns and it felt like the longest journey of my life. I had thought that I was going to die.
    Anyway, I love the photos… I feel like I am sharing each day of your holiday with you. I would like to come to India one day too.
    Today it was actually sunny in Dursley, which was a pleasant change!
    The fire engine came for its bi annual visit to school which was fun for all of us.
    Hope you enjoy your sightseeing visit around Delhi.
    Much love
