Kufri derives from the world Kufri, which essentially means Pond or Lake. Kufri was earlier known because of the presence of the Parashar Lake, which gave the place its name. The lake still flows in the areas around Kufri and if you visit the lake during summer, you will get relief by the cool waters of the lake.

HISTORY : The region around Shimla including Kufri was once a part of the Kingdom of Nepal, until the area was ceded to the British Raj as part of the Sugauli Treaty. This region remained obscure from the rest of the world until the British 'discovered' it in 1819.

Kufri was much hidden from the remaining country, majorly due to the altitude and cultural differences. Kufri was initially a part of Nepal, which they surrendered to the British in Sugauli treaty in 1819. The British then coined Shimla as the summer capital of the country, which increased the importance of Kufri as well. Tourists started coming to the place for vacation, and since people have realised the true beauty of the place, the numbers have only gone up.

Kufri, Shimla and Chail together form what is known as the Golden Triangle of Himachal Pradesh, much similar to the Delhi, Jaipur and Chandigarh tour that is called the Golden Triangle of India.

CLIMATE : All the seasons of nature visit Shimla during the year. The isotherms of Shimla happen to match with that of London throughout the year and is the reason for Britisher's choice of Shimla as its summer capital.

Many people think about this enigma i.e. why we call it (capsicum/bell pepper) as Shimla Mirch.

To capitalize the tourists there is a mad rush in Shimla to add stories to the existing buildings which has resulted in the overweight problem for Shimla.

The curse of global warming and unplanned transportation system is taking away the glory of this hill station. Shimla is now considered as the most polluted hill station in India.

Discovered by the British in 1819 when Nepal handed over the region following the Anglo-Gurkha War, Kufri is a quaint hill station in the Shimla district. Dotted with colonial-style buildings, terrace farms and potato plantations, Kufri is also the starting point for treks to Manali, Rewalsar and Fagu. With abundant snowfall during winter, the winding paths through potato plantations get transformed into ski tracks.
