Deep in the foothills of the Himalayas likes Shimla, one of India’s most famous hill stations that is strung out along a 12km ridge. Shimla was where much of Rudyard Kipling’s, Kim, took place. Your guided walking tour of Shimla starts from The Indian Institute of Advanced Studies. You will pass many other Raj era buildings such as the Shimla Club, The Oberoi Clarkes, Gaiety Theatre, The Mall, The Ridge, Gorton Castle (now office of The Accountant General), the State Museum of Himachal and finally ending the walk at the magnificent Indian Institute of Advanced Studies (otherwise known as the Viceregal Lodge). This is a fascinating tour and one that is best enjoyed on foot with an experienced guide.
