What are the modes of local transportation in Shimla?

Lace up and get ready to sweat as the most common way to get around Shimla is using your own two feet. Yes, carrying those pair of shoes buried somewhere in your closet is a good idea. You can visit places like the Jakhoo Temple by car or trek up from the Mall Road and the same follows for other places of interest like Christ Church and Viceregal Lodge. Largely there are many small winding lanes which connect the city, best traversed by foot.


Regular buses ply along the main roads of Shimla but you may want to hire a taxi for your excursions near and far as these buses are not only rickety but at times rash as well. The hill station is well connected by bus and if you aren’t a dainty darling, hop on and feel the cool winds in your hair while enjoying the scenic environs of Shimla on your ride.


Be prepared to be exhausted before dinner times, but we promise your exploration in and around  the Queen of Hills Shimla will be worth it.
