Need some information on how to reach hotel at Shimla mall from Shimla rail station.
I visited Shimla last 6 years back. At that time, I stayed hotel near to the railway station.
Now, I booked hotel which is near the church at Shimla mall. What is the best way to reach the hotel? Please guide me on this.

I gather that there is somewhere a lift up from the lower level to the Mall. I did look for it but never found it. There are also stairs, stairs, and more stairs. (Phew!)
There is a luggage room at the station if you don't need your heavy bags while in Shimla. The taxi sounds the easy option!

You can take a bus to the lift, it will cost rs 10/-. Then lift will deposit you near shamiana/goofa restaurant if memory serves me right. Then walk to your hotel.

However, the best option is to hire a coolie from station to the hotel and walk the 1.5kms with him while he takes the heavier bags.

Where is your hotel in Mall Road? The cab will drop you at the nearest location.

If you take a bus get down at the lift or the taxi will drop you at the lift. Not sure about the cab rates.

I just gone through your travelogue on Kinnaur,Spiti. Your description all along your photographs made my day.

Is it possible to to visit Tabo from Kalpa and very next return to Sangla. Is it be worthful? I don't have much time. Also, I cant exclude Tabo with my Kinnaur tour.

Here is my plan. Can it be done?

14 Oct Simla to Kalpa
15 .Kalpa N/S
16 .Kalpa to Tabo
17.Tabo to Sangla
18.Sangla to Chitkul
19.Chitkul to Sarahan
20. Sarahan to Kalka

How do you plan to travel between the towns? By cab or buses?

As Vaibhav said. Tabo to Sangla would be around a 9 hour drive.

I would suggest skip Tabo. Spend your time in Kinnaur.
