    A Winding Road to a Colonial Hill Station

    ... a four-lane road until we reach the border between Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, where we stop to pay a toll. The climb immediately becomes more dramatic, the road more winding, and the incessant passing (and honking) around blind curves more white-knuckle inducing! Before long we stop at a hilltop restaurant with a gorgeous view for a final "Continental" menu before we head into the hinterlands where menu options will be limited to Indian cuisine. ...

    Day 4: Parwanoo to Shimla

    Awoke to a beautiful morning on the mountain at Parwanoo. Descended on the cable car and reclaimed our bikes at the bottom. Temperature hot but not unpleasantly. Set off up the winding road towards Shimla. The hills are large and steep sided and we went up and down crossing the ranges. Have to drive very defensively as the motorists' passing manoeuvres are crazy. Passing on blind corners seems normal. A lot of busy villages and lots of sacred cows browsing on grass or rubbish along ...

    Shimla, a stunning mountain town

    A travel blog entry by cavilleharris89 on Sep 06, 2013


    ... Another interesting encounter was in Mall Street, where a young teenage Indian boy ran up to us with a huge smile and shook our hands, almost curtsying as he did this, and ran off. 2mins after this, the same boy approached us from behind and hugged us. I can only imagine him running back to his mates at a later stage and being like: "yho boytjies, I hugged two western girls today". Bizarre, but part of this experience I guess. Later, we were approached by a young ...

    ... stop - the engine had overheated. we had to wait an hour and a half before they managed to connect the replacement engine to the train and get going again. No-one on the train was too bothered as we all piled out onto the tracks and messed around. The other westerners on the train and I posed for numerous photographs with the locals.

    Finally arrived in Shimla at about 8.30pm in the midst of a massive downpour so I joined forces with others on ...

    Dodgy-gut incident; and hiking in "The Glen"

    A travel blog entry by matt.s.wise on May 29, 2011

    ... Fortunately there were few people walking about at that time of night, and one motorcyclist drove past but paid no attention. I'm not proud of having had to do this but I had no choice!

    On to today, and I spent much of the day walking along the roads, tracks and paths through the hilly pine forest around Shimla. I headed to the Glen north of the centre, maned because of its resemblance to the Scottish ...
