Shimla is one such destination that has charmed everyone from North to South and from East to West which is why the place is always teeming with tourists, whether in summer or in winter. People looking for cool weather during the summer season head to Shimla to get a respite from the heat in plains whereas, the winter season gives a chance to witness the snowfall that covers the whole city with a white sheet making it a magical world.

They were satisfied with their vacation and wanted to share their experience with fellow travelers. So, Pawan Lohiya is here to pen down his feelings about the trip!
February was the perfect time to plan a domestic trip and we could not think of a better option than Shimla since we had not explored this place before. We heard a lot about Shimla, the Mall Road, cafes, churches, book shops, and everything else. We wanted to witness it ourselves so our destination was decided.

Weather In Shimla In February
We did the research before heading to Shimla, so we were expecting cold weather with chances of snowfall. Both of us were excited to witness snowfall in Shimla or Kufri. It did rain for two days which led to a further drop in the temperature. We got lucky to see snowfall in Kufri which added the fun element to the trip as we got to indulge in more activities. There is no doubt in the fact that February is a good time to explore Shimla and it is safe to visit in this month.
Experiences On Our Shimla Trip
Since it was a short tour, we decided to both explore and relax on our 4 days couple trip to Shimla. So, we explored famous tourist spots in Shimla as well as reserved a day for us to relax, unwind, and admire the beauty of the place.
1. Mall Road: Took A Stroll Around This Place
As we all know that Mall Road is the main tourist place in Shimla so our first stop has to be that only. So, we went to Shimla’s Mall Road where we explored the Ridge, Christ Church, Lakkar Bazaar, bookshops as well as cafes. This is the best place to get a bird’s eye view of the whole city in one glance. Later, we tried different street foods and had a proper dinner that ended the day on a good note.
2. Kufri: The Magical Place
If you are wondering what to do in Shimla for 4 days, then we have the perfect answer to that – head to Kufri. This is the place where we got to witness snowfall so we decided to indulge in some activities. It was the best day of our whole trip. If anyone is planning a vacation to Shimla then they must include this place in their itinerary.
Hotel We Stayed In Shimla
On our 4 days couple trip to Shimla, we stayed only in one hotel which provided commendable services. Hotel King Palace made sure that we had a comfortable stay which is why their room service and facilities were up to the mark. We were extremely satisfied with our stay which is why we recommend tourists to opt for this hotel. Moreover, the location of this hotel is also good and easy to find.
Food We Devoured In Shimla
As a trip to any place remains incomplete without food we also grabbed every chance to try street food. Not only the food was delicious and lip-smacking, they also left us wanting for more. We explored and found The Que Cafe which had a cool ambiance as well as the food. Later, we had dinner at a dhaba on the Mall Road where we were served with the best dal makhni ever.
Our Experience With TravelTriangle
Our overall experience was amazing and we were totally satisfied with the budget, personalized itinerary, and all the services. Since I had a prior experience with TT, I did not have to give a second thought to the company. I would recommend all of my friends and relatives to get a customized itinerary within their budget.
Pawan Lohiya and her wife had a great time on their 4 days trip to Shimla. From local sightseeing to indulging in activities, they did it all to make their trip memorable. Not only this, they also had delectable street food which they recommend to try. If you too want to explore places like they did, then you must plan your vacation to Shimla with TravelTriangle and get your own personalized itinerary.
