Yup.. this is the season for rains in the hills and we get plenty of it in Shimla. The best part of traveling during this time is it is less crowded and you get good prices at the hotels. The scenery is lush green and there is this own charm to visit during rains.

I am also thinking about an August trip to Shimla, perhaps around independence day. The main purpose is to go hiking/ trekking.

Is the rain going to make this an unpleasant experience?

Will some of the walks be closed because of the weather?

Does the rain come in a series of short showers?

Shimla around independence day will be crowded. Better have the hotel booked in advance. It pours here in Shimla and sometimes for days! Small hikes around Shimla can be done to Jakhu peak.

Now that you've done Kalka-Shimla, you may want to read about what it was like in the pre-war days of the Britisj Raj. Glorious, not crowded and mystical beyond description. And all true!


And please do send me feedback and you won't regret it.
