Shimla has been a perfect summer retreat with pure mountain air, cerulean skies and snow covered peaks. Even though there are several places to visit in Shimla at anytime all through the year, there are times during which it looks even more beautiful.

  • Summer
    The best time to visit Shimla is preferably between summer and autumn. May to June in Shimla is said to be the peak season and hence maximum number of tourists flock to the hill station during this time. It is recommended to make advance bookings for hotels or you may not be able to find a decent accommodation for you. Rafting, trekking, camping, hiking are some of the sports which are on in a full swing during summers in Shimla.
  • Monsoon
    With the advent of monsoon from July (which lasts till September), landslides and roadblocks are common in Shimla. Hence, it is recommended not to travel to this hill station during monsoons. Shimla is known for its unpredictable rains so don’t forget to always carry an umbrella with you.
  • Winter
    October marks the start of winter in Shimla and the temperature goes down to even -7°C, making the weather conditions extremely harsh. However, you will enjoy the stunning views of snow covered Shimla during winters as it witnesses heavy snowfalls in winter. If you are interested in enjoying sports like skiing and ice skating, make your way to Shimla during winters. Don’t forget to make way for woolens and warm socks in your bags as the weather condition is too harsh.

For explorers, nature lovers and backpackers, the off season from March to April is the best time to enjoy the scenic beauty of Shimla. Lesser number of tourists and low accommodation rates call for a quiet and relaxed vacation in Shimla.
