Shimla Day Hikes

Walks | Day Treks in Shimla

3-5 hour Day Hikes, Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Go for amazing, scenic, adventurous & insightful day treks in Shimla through deodar, chestnut & oak treeline. Shimla Day Hikes are the best way to explore and photograph the scenic outskirts of Rupshu region.

The best way to get to know Shimla is to walk on some of its quiet roads. Inspite of a lot of construction in recent years, some of these roads still retain a certain charm. They bring out the stark contrast between Simla, the erstwhile summer capital of British India and Shimla, the present day capital of Himachal Pradesh. There are enchanting experiences to be found in deodar and oak woods, pleasant weather, deep blue skies, the play of shade and light as you walk through the groves of trees and new vistas opening up after every curve.

It is a pleasure to explore this hill town all year round. On a bright winter day, when you venture out all wrapped in woolens, your breath condenses. The chill necessitates frequent stop at roadside dhabas for a glass of hot, sweet and strong tea. In summer, the pleasant cool winds are a welcome relief from the scorching heat of the plains. Autumn is wonderful with deep blue skies and wild flowers. The old oak, horse chestnuts and rhododendrons shed their older leaves amidst the majestic conifers. The monsoons are a good time to be here if you don’t mind a little dampness. This is the time when the town is at its quietest, not too many tourists, gentle rain and mist and, when the skies clear, the most awesome sunsets !

A walk on the lawns of the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies (the former Viceregal Lodge) on a rain-washed, foggy afternoon can be a wonderful experience. On these walks you can stop and sit in the rain shelters with sloping tin roofs or on roadside parapets – not because you are tired but because it is a pleasure to just sit and watch the mists rising and settling around you.

Delicious hot food like rice, rajma, karhi, chapatis and stuffed paranthas, besides a variety of other cuisines are available at dhabas and restaurants, all over Shimla and its suburbs like Summer Hill, Boileauganj, Chhota Shimla, Sanjauli, Dhali and Mashobra.

One road goes to Jakhu Temple (climbs up to the right, or north), the other goes to Ramchandra Chowk (goes straight and descends south-west) while the third one goes to Rich Mount (descends to the right, or north). Follow the road to Rich Mount, a residential area, and then on to Dream Land Hotel before descending back to the Ridge visible below. Enjoy the view of the snow-clad Himalayan peaks to the north-west as you walk past the Indira Gandhi Medical College Hospital (popularly known as Snowdon Hospital). Bask in the silence, birdsong and dappled sunlight on your way to Five Benches, and finish your walk, with mouth-watering chaat on top of the Ridge, at Taka Bench.
