Hi guys, I am planning a trip to Shimla in the first week of Jan 2014. I have visited Shimla once but I am having some questions in my mind this time.

1) would it be safe to travel in bus or train would be better. My place is Chandigarh.

2)Any recommended hotels with budget less than rs 1000 daily.. Preferred near the mall

Hoping help from you guys.

Thanks.

Train travel will be safer specially in the first week of January when road driving in the hilly mountain roads could be tricky due to snow or maybe even fog.

As you know Chandigarh is quite cold in early January and Shimla even colder than Chandigarh so be well prepared with some warm clothing and enjoy your stay in historic Shimla.

Try hotel Sansara

I have stayed in Hotel Mayur behind the famous Christ Church and the room rate used to be under Rs. 1000/night but I think their rates now are higher but if you keep walking past hotel Mayur then you will find a bunch of budget hotels like hotel Mehman and other budget hotels nearby.

If you can plan in advance, train...if not bus. Snow is not a problem on the chandigarh simla road. Note: Early morning train may be delayed due to fog. However, nothing beats the fun of a slow moving train through misty mountains.
