Beautiful temple. Lovely walk up to it. But be very careful of the monkeys. They tend to snatch anything in your hand. So it's best to leave your belongings in the car

There seem to be nexus between prasad seller and monkeys seem trained. the location is good and worth visiting if you have time. Do guard your stuff... More

Before climbing up the jhaku hill we got to know there is a cable car that has been recently launched priced around 500 off per person. But we deem ourselves fit and this trek tested our notion.

This is at the highest point in Shimla and the walk/drive is great fun to do. Once you are at the top you can enjoy the famous views. Be warned there are lots of monkeys roaming free. They will steal your glasses, hats, scarfs and anything that is not tied down. TOP TIP.....take a biscuit/small amount of food with you.... More

The slope of the track challenges you if you are from a corporate world. Test your fitness through this track and start working more for yourself than for your office.
