The best way to visit Shimla is via the “toy train” which runs on this track and to add more glory to this beautiful Rail tract, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 2008. This route comprises 864 bridges and 107 tunnels.

It is surrounded by cedar woods and through which one can walk to Mahasu Peak, the highest peak in Kufri. Once just a kufer or pond, Kufri today has developed into an exotic holiday destination.

Shimla and its surrounding areas, including Kufri, used to be part of the Kingdom of Nepal. During the Sugauli Treaty, this region was then given to the British Raj.

In summers one can do horse and yak riding on the green meadows. One can trek to the Mahasu peak for some adventure. Some resorts have come up around Kufri on the Kufri-Chail road for those seeking abode away from the maddening crowds of Shimla.

It is named so because of a story according to which a British lady was eloped with an Indian Maharaja due to which the later was banished from entering Shimla.

Kufri is a small hill station and a popular tourist destination located near the capital city of Shimla in Himachal Pradesh. It is one of the most well known places to visit, especially during the winters, when it snows on the hilltops and the natural beauty of the place grows tenfold. People prefer Intercity Cab Gurgaon to Kufri. Kufri attracts thousands of visitors during peak times and has rapidly gained importance among adventure lovers in India.

Tunnel number 33 is the longest tunnel on Kalka-Shimla Railway track and it has a secret story to tell. In 1898, British Govt. gave the charge to build this tunnel to an engineer named Colonel Barog but he could not finish the project by the given deadline and was charged with a rupee fine.

Kufri is very close to Shimla, not only because of their cultural similarities but also owing to the geography of the region.Book Intercity Taxi Service Gurgaon to Kufri. Kufri and Shimla are only 15 km away from each other and since Kufri is at a much higher altitude than Shimla, it is easy to spot Shimla from one of its peaks, especially the Mahasu Peak.

He felt humiliated and committed suicide. He was buried near the incomplete tunnel and it is said that his ghost wanders in this tunnel. Quite scary!
