The Majestic And Surreal Kalka-Shimla Railways In Pictures; Avinash Jha; Tripoto

India – Mountain Railways of India

The train journey from Kalka to India’s erstwhile summer capital Shimla, early in the morning is one of the best things happen to me in the hills of India. One has to experience this journey while going to Shimla! It is simply amazing! The journey is around 5 – 6 hours. In between you get to see many breathtaking views which includes valleys, hills. If you take the train which starts at 5:30 AM or before sunrise you may get to see the sun rising behind the valley.

These photos will make you realize why should you travel atleast once in this toy train.

The Kalka-Shimla Rail route is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site under Mountain Railways of India along with Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and Nilgiri Mountain Railways.
