... nicely. We are served a huge bottle of water, followed by coffee and tea, followed by a breakfast consisting of bread with honey, and an omelette (if your choice is the non-veg menu), including another round of coffee and tea. It is simple food, but it tops off the pastries we received in our hotel breakfast boxes. We feel extra grateful for these amenities as we pass other passenger trains traveling in different directions where the people ...

The most exciting way of getting to Shimla is by way of the Kalka to Shimla narrow gauge railway or toy train as they are known. Kalka. Is a main line station with good connections from Delhi. I caught an overnight train fro Delhi at about 2100 whichever arrived in Kalka about 0500 the following day. This is just in time for the prestige 0600 train up to Shimla. This needs booking in advance throughout the year and reservations open 30 days in advance ...

It had been a climb from the Old Bus Stand, up steep paths and stairs with our packs, and along the way several people had pointed us in the right direction to the "YMC." Bilal, however, looked puzzled and asked, “Why do people always go to the Y?” The answer was that I had made an advance booking, using the Lonely Planet guide recommendation. We ...

... your bag I've hired a porter!  Thanks Fraser you're the best! I still struggled walking up with it being 2000m high and me feeling sick it didn't really help. Fraser soldiered on carrying his bag. The room was good and had a view of the city. We rested then looked around town for a bit. It has so many buildings that look English. The middle of town is pedestrian only but being India there were still cars that would motor along and toot ...
