I believe your best moments in life are those which come unexpected. Few months back i went on trip to shimla, manali and rohtang pass with my family. As expected Himachal was beautiful, it was beautiful than the kumaun ranges that i have visited before. Here I felt if really want to admire natural beauty then go to the greater Himalayas. But what was unexpectedly exiting and beautiful was our trip from Kalka to Shimla by the toy train run by the government. The name was shivalik express. It was like travelling in a fairy tale. small size coaches, sofa like seats, meals in between, heavenly weather, and incomparably beautiful terrain and the long tunnels through which it passes. If there was anything the Britishers did good was this railway track they had build. Its a heritage site of India guys.
This truly is the best way to travel from Kalka to Shimla. To the travelers its my personal advice take the very first ( morning ) shivalik express because at that time its the best weather.
