Located in Himachal Pradesh, India, Shimla is often referred to as the “Queen of Hills” owing to its silent and yet striking beauty. The snow covered peaks and lush green-carpeted valleys make the hill station a hit with locals and tourists alike. However, what is most attractive about Shimla is its different shades ranging from silent and romantic to chaotic and uproarious. This diversity encourages travelers to look out for a tour package in Shimla whenever given the chance. Given below are some of the main reasons for Shimla’s popularity with travelers in and around India.
