Owing to the Treebo chain of hotels, I could at last step in this wonderland. I always had Shimla on my bucket list, but I thought it was not attainable this soon. Because cold places require a lot of planning and the appropriate gear, I kind of pushed this destination farther. However, when Treebo approached me, I started enlisting the Indian places I wanted to go. Shimla being on the top, this destination was then finalised.
Treebo has two hotels in and around Shimla: Treebo Varuna, which is at the Mall Road, and Treebo Snowview, which is at Kufri. I chose the one in Kufri because of the incredible view from the hotel room.
After getting down at ISBT, Shimla, we walked to the Crossing bus stop and hopped on a bus to the Mall Road. After walking further, we waited at the Scandal Point for our moped and then hired a Jupiter. The cost per day being Rs. 700. (Contact Mr Dixit on 8894127835 for hiring vehicles in Shima.) We took our bike and started for Kufri, thus passing through mesmerising panoramas! Here are some pictures from this journey, following a video:
