Toy Train journey from Shimla to Solan
The narrow gauge railway from Kalka to Shimla, completed in 1903, is considered one of the finest engineering feats in India. A journey along this track on the 'toy train' is one of the best ways to experience the beautiful Himalayan scenery that the Shimla area is famous for. Lush green valleys and snow-covered mountains can be viewed from the windows of this delightful train on the 2.5-hour journey to Solan. For those seeking a more active adventure, hop on the toy train at Shimla and alight at Taradevi station. From here you can enjoy a 2-hour trek through the magnificent cedars up to Tara Devi temple. The temple offers serene surroundings and a breathtaking view of low-lying hills in the distance.
This train ride can be taken on our group tour The Golden Triangle & Shimla.
