If you need a break from work but don’t really want to travel too far to get that break, head to Shimla for a quick staycation in the hills. A hill station with an old-world charm and gorgeous resorts, Shimla makes a great destination for a weekend getaway.
The town has bunch of places to explore like The Mall, Viceregal Lodge and the Victorian building at the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies. Shimla is also the perfect place to start your journey if you’re looking to explore more of Himachal Pradesh. And if you find Shimla too crowded during the peak season, you can head to Summer Hill, a small town just outside of Shimla. The 5km trekking trail from Shimla to Summer Hill is picturesque and makes for a quiet adventure.
