Hi guys,

It's been a while since I last went from Kalka to Shimla, and I don't remember if there was a prepaid taxi stand at Kalka railway station.

Is there a prepaid taxi stand at Kalka railway station?

Does anybody have recent info of how much a taxi from Kalka to Shimla is these days?

I guess you know that one of the great train rides is to take the "Toy Train" from Kalka up to Shimla?

Trains are not not everyone's cup of tea, I know!

(Train fare is about Rs 300.)

If you want to take taxi to Shimla then you should prefer Chandigarh as starting point. Kalka is best for toy train ride as suggested earlier.

not much difference. also, it might be little bit expensive from Chandigarh in comparison to Kalka

Yes, been there, done it. Quite a few times, actually. But this time I have to take a taxi.
