As a traveller, I usually prefer places which is mesmerising in nature and is full of scenic beauty. Mostly hill stations, and beaches are where I always feel close to the simplicity of nature. Also, our family members were visiting us in Delhi which is why we opted Shimla as our destination to go on a family trip. Hence, I and my wife, who reside in Delhi and belong to Kerala, decided to go on a weekend trip to Shimla with family.
Our search for suitable travel packages on Google led us to the website of TravelTriangle. We thought we’ll give it a shot, and raised a query for a weekend trip to Shimla with family. In a very short span of time, we were offered various packages with different quotes which is how we were able to finalize the trip with limited time in hand.
DAY 0: Kick-Starting The Journey
We started our bus journey around 9:30 pm from the bus stop of Majnu ka Tila in Delhi, and till the time we reached the destination, the whole journey was smooth and safe. We reached Shimla around 6 am, wherein the cab was waiting for us and the driver greeted us with pleasant smile.
We were later transferred to the Harmony Blue Hotel which was an excellent hotel and was located at a distance of about 15 km away from the bus stop. We finished the check-in process and rested up for a while.
DAY 1: Tripping Amidst The Mountains Already!
We started our day at around 10:30 am and geared up for the sightseeing. We visited the Green Valley, Kufri Fun World, and Kufri Zoo. We had a lot of fun at the amusement park and enjoyed some thrilling rides as well. We also enjoyed a bit of nature walking in Kufri.

Later in the zoo, we had a good time while we went birdwatching. We spotted many birds of different species and since it was a sunny day, the temperature was a bit high. We soon returned to the hotel in the evening wherein we spent some quality time with family and the location of the hotel was pretty awesome amidst the mountains.
DAY 2: Sightseeing + Shopping = Fun Unlimited
The next morning, we set out early to visit Naldehra. We reached Naldehra and all of our family members enjoyed horse riding for about an hour or so. We all rode through the cedar trees which was truly an amazing experience.
The sightseeing was mind blowing too. We could see the famous golf club, post which we went to the hilltop. The panoramic view of Shimla was mesmerising indeed. We took some candid shots and later went to visit the amazing statue of Lord Hanuman. It was a massive statue which measured about 108 ft.

Later we went to the famous Mall road for shopping and picked up few souvenirs. The whole experience was a great one as per the limited time. Later in the evening we checked-out of the hotel and boarded the bus back to Delhi.
