  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

The Shivalik hills were carved into a 96-kilometer railway line on November 9, 1903. The hill track passes over 864 bridges, under 102 tunnels and around 900 sharp curves. This required three years of tireless labor, required to achieve this astonishing feat.

Kalka Shimla Railway has seven coaches that can accommodate upto 200 passengers per trip. The weather conditions, no matter how extreme cannot challenge the 700 horsepower B-B type diesel engines. They can run with ease even in the temperatures that range from zero to 45°C and even in heavy snow or heavy rainfall. The average speed of 25-30 kmph ensures that no such word like 'hurry' is allowed while on the journey.

The Kalka Shimla Train track rises from Kalka at 640 meters and crawls through the cool climate of Shimla lying at a height of 2,060 meters. Kalka to Shimla journey is just simply heaven. It winds its way through the hills and move up to the alpine in the lower part of the Himalayas. As one reaches the foothills, they would be blessed with a breathtaking view of Kushalya River, Koti, Barog, Kanoh, Jabli (1,240 meters above sea level).

Picturesque three loops near Taksal, Gumman and Dharampur are just perfect for photography enthusiasts. From Barog to Kandaghat, the train goes downhill towards the gorgeous and old-world retreats of Solan and Saloghra. The final climb commences from Kandaghat and passes through the vast dense forests of oak and rhododendron. As it passes Taradevi, the train takes a turn towards Prospect Hill till Jutogh, as it winds its way to pause at Summer Hill. This assures a wholesome vacation lift that rejuvenates every spirit in the most refreshing way. Finally, it tunnels under the Inverarm Hill and rises at Shimla where new wonders of nature welcome its passengers.
