Kalka Shimla is a 2 ft 6 in( 762 mm) narrow gauge railway in North west India traveling along mountainous route from Kalka to Shimla.Shimla is known as the summer capital of India and once you have been to this place you will love everything about it. Shimla Kalka Toy train was opened in year 1903 so it is close to 113 years old now.
Now Shimla is very well connected but we still opted for the train journey from Delhi and afterwards boarded the famous Kalka-Shimla Train, which is also famous with name “Toy Train.” Kalka-Shimla Railway became part of the World Heritage Site Mountain Railways of India.
Aayan is a big fan of Thomas trains so this one always use to fascinate him and we got an opportunity to visit the place. For Kaira this was her 1st train journey so she was quite amused looking at the surrounding.
Though the train journey is pretty slow somewhat around 5-6 hours but i find time is less to admire the beauty of this place and what else you can ask for sitting in a train with nice breeze, gorgeous landscape and rain.
On the way it started raining heavily and we can’t capture anything so just few lovely droplets on the window glass.
Clear view from the train and love that magical mystic smoke on the mountains, it just takes you to a different world.
Few more clicks to enjoy till the train starts the journey again-
I am just finishing my post with the photo of my little darling as she was happy that time.
Though I feel that words are not enough to write about the beauty of this place but surely it is a worth experience and a wonderful memory.
