Shimla Is Calling You For The Long Weekend And Here's Why!

Imagine taking a walk on a street covered in snow, starting a snow fight with your friends or just simply sipping on a cup of hot chocolate sitting by the window while you experience the most beautiful season of all. Yes, it does feel like a dream. But some dreams do come true, isn't it? Irrespective of how old you are or how much you like or dread this chilly weather, we always want to experience the season's first snowfall. Well, you can now, as your favourite hill station, Shimla, has turned completely white. And the good news is, you have a long weekend ahead of you. So what are you waiting for? Plan a trip with your friends or loved ones right now before all the snow starts to melt away.
