From Shimla we went for a lovely hike to the Viceregal Lodge, where once the Viceroy of India would spend his summers. We didn't go the straight way, which is paved, but rather took a 10-12 km. detour which took us through the Glen, past Chadwick Falls and up to Summer Hill.
Living in an enormous city like Delhi. it's amazing once in awhile to get away from any human inhabitation and just enjoy unspoiled nature - so it was a really good trip.
On the way out of town you see many colonial-era buildings, many of which, including this one, have been converted into government offices.
We went to the bottom of a canyon near the Glen, with a lovely stream running through it, creating many miniature falls such as this one.
Enjoying a well-earned lunch rest at a small village, with a shop serving cold coke and Maggi noodles.
