A cold freezing night of Shimla..
Almost 0°c ... I was going out again and again to see if I'll get to see snowfall..
But I have never seen it yet..
And as every human on Earth
I wanna see it one day ..
I have heard people saying Shimla doesn't have anything special to see .. but you know what Go anywhere in Himachal , everything is beautiful.. Mountains and views are breathtaking..
And after all it's Shimla ❤️
The Queen of Hills ... .
Delicate human touch to the mountains. Urbanization is at it's peak. Always wanted to pose in front of this iconic backgrounds. But couldn't. At least I could able to capture this through the windows.

The Kalka–Shimla railway is a 2 ft 6 in (762 mm) narrow-gauge railway in North India which traverses a mostly-mountainous route from Kalka to Shimla. It is known for dramatic views of the hills and surrounding villages. The railway was built under the direction of Herbert Septimus Harington between 1898 and 1903 to connect Shimla, the summer capital of India during the British Raj, with the rest of the Indian rail system.
