Wakhnaghat-Shimla-Kufri: A Combo Travel Package

Wakhnaghat-Shimla-Kufri: A Combo Travel Package

Hey everyone, I just love travelling and hill stations are my most favourite excursion places. And going to Shimla and Kufri had always been my dream. This January I went with my friends to Wakhnaghat. There is nothing much in Wakhnaghat, just a beautiful small city. It was actually on behalf of our college as we has a placement drive there. We were already placed so we just went to have some fun. The weather in Wakhnaghat was awesome, not very cold during day(I mean less cold than Delhi was) but during the night it was chilly. Shimla is an hour and a half run away from Wakhnaghat.



Shimla is just amazing, the mall road quite modern and buildings there just breath taking. Shimla is perhaps the most picturesque town of north India. During the British era, Shimla was the summer retreat and was renowned as the “Queen of the Hills”. There are various tourist sports in Shimla. Let me summarize the few of them I visited for you here..


The Ridge:
This place is an open space in the heart of town and offers outstanding views of the distant mountain ranges.

The Mall:
The Mall is crowded with an assortment of restaurants, clubs, banks, bars, Post Offices, tourist offices and most of town’s highlights. The place becomes breathtakingly romantic in the evening offering wonderful views of the lit up city below.

Tara Devi Temple:
Among the various places to visit in Shimla, this temple occupies a crucial place and is also of great importance for the pilgrims. It is located on top of a hill facing Shimla and commands panoramic vistas of Shimla. It is also an ideal picnic spot surrounded by thick forest of oak and rhododendron.

Christ Church:
Christ Church is second oldest church in North India, and its a beautiful Shimla heritage site. This beautiful church has got extensive stained glass windows of the very old time period. It is located just near the Mall.

Going Shimla and not visiting Kufri, let me tell you people is just unheard of. You need to visit Kufri once you go to Shimla. I can tell you, you certainly will enjoy it. We went in January, so there was snow everywhere. Even it was being predicted that in a day or two Shimla will be getting its first snowfall of the season. But Kufri was all covered in a white blanket when we went there. Everywhere we looked there was deep snow. We even witnessed snowfall, imagine that. It was all heaven. Due to snowfall cars were not able to go(I forgot to tell you, we hired a taxi for whole day from Wakhnaghat to Shimla. They took about 2000 bucks for the day) by car, so had to take horses, which again cost us(after much bargaining) 250 bucks for each horse.


If you can’t bear cold then please its my advice to you please wear enough warm clothes, trust me you will need them there. Also wear nice comfortable flat shoes to the trip, it gets a lot slippery once the ice starts to melt. Also you may need to walk a lot, so be prepared folks.
All in all the trip to Shimla was my best ever. Its worth every single penny I spent. Try going via car or taxi, whatever you prefer to the place because there are so many places to visit there, you certainly need some vehicle and the taxi fares there are so high. So it will be economical for you to instead take your own vehicle.


I would certainly wanna take another trip to Shimla-Kufri. It is a perfect combo.
