Shimla at an altitude of 2,130 m is an utterly charming resort. It is the best loved hill station in India and has been a favourite since British troops set up camp here in 1819. With the Mall and Ridge being main attractions, climbing beyond Scandal point and Ridge beyond Shimla a 2 kms walk takes you to the Jakhoo hill, with a panoramic view of Shimla and Hanuman temple.
