CHANDIGARH, endowed with
magnificent backdrop of the Shivaliks, sparkling gardens and a planned
township, is one of the most beautiful and glamorous cities of India.
Natural beauty coupled with a multicultural population has given rise to
an impressive line-up of gardens, galleries, museums complimented by
some outstanding architecture. SHIMLA OR SIMLA - the summer capital of
the Raj, located at an altitude of 7267 feet, is inhabited around a
crescent-shaped ridge, which is blessed with perennially cool air and
amazing views. It provides superb panoramic sights of the valleys, and
the lofty peaks of the great Himalayan range, on both sides. The
colourful local bazaars of Shimla are sprawled over the southern slopes
of the ridge. CHAIL - here even time takes a pause to breathe pink
scented fresh mountain air - quiet and serene pathways, where you can
hear hornbill, lush green forests, silent valleys, enchanting glades,
brilliant crimson flaming sunsets, floating clouds, misty hills - ideal
place to go for a hike or do nothing....
