Can you tell me about places which make for some of the best walks in Shimla?

Within 2 km of the Viceregal Lodge is the Kamna Devi Temple, just above Boileauganj. It has good views of the town, airfield and the ranges. You can
also walk to Potter’s Hill, which lies past the university campus at Summer
Hill. This is where Shimla once got its clay pots and pitchers. Today its woods
have a nice camp. Past this lie the Chadwick Falls.

Among the most popular walks is The Glen. It is a thickly wooded ravine with a stream flowing through it and quite attractive once you cross the initial 656 ft or so. Annandale is best known as a helipad. This large glade has a golf course and is
surrounded by thick deodar woods with a charming temple by the edge. It
was once the place for fancy fairs and polo. Both Glen and Annandale are
around 5 km from Scandal Point.

A walk towards Chhota Shimla could include a look at the exterior of the Tudor-framed Raj Bhavan — once Barnes Court — the state governor’s residence.
Other excursions include the Tara Devi Temple. The views are spectacular
and down the valley lies Junga, the seat of the erstwhile State of Keonthal —
whose patron deity was Tara Devi.

One of Shimla’s best-kept secrets is the village of Bihargaon, approached from the cemetery below St Edward’s School. Thick woods, an open glade and the Dhanu Devta Temple, a splendid example of local architecture, make this an unusual excursion. Among the Buddhist monasteries is Kasumpti, 7 km from Scandal Point and accessible by car. So is Sanjauli, save for the last 1/2 km.
