To Shimla by Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar (Pics of Beautiful Scenery on the Way and my Experience)

Shimla, Nalagarh, Ramshehar, Kunihar, Himachal, Car Drive,

I always love to travel by the roads less travelled because by doing so I get a chance to see things which are still hidden from the most of people. On my single day journey to Shimla from Ropar (Punjab) for some work, I decided to travel on the State Highway 16 by following the route Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar instead of going through the National Highway (NH) 5. Not only this route was shorter by 40 KMs, but I was also expecting some adventure on the way.

Clouds, Way, Shimla,

This journey become a quite exciting and thrilling because I was travelling on this route in the month of July on a rainy day. Though, I was aware that this is a single road and I may face landslides if rain continued. Still, I was ready for the adventure and I started my journey early in the morning on Tata Indigo eCS. Till nalagarh, I faced heavy rain but rain slowed down as I crossed Nalagarh. The weather was very fine and it was drizzling throughout the journey.

I saw many new places on the way and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Due to rain and clouds, everything started looking very beautiful. At some places road condition was not fine and there were mild landslides but still whole journey was good. Though, I want to advice that travelling on this route in the month of July or in rainy season is risky and may cause delay due to landslides. But, It is also true that you need to take some risks when you want to see something extraordinary.

Pine Tree, Clouds,

On the one side, Rainy season increases the risks for driving and on the other side, it makes everything look very beautiful. I reached Shimla by 11 AM and greated by the clouds. Whole of the Shimla was in the cover of clouds and visibility was quite low still very enjoyable. I finished my work in Shimla by 5 PM. However, while for the return journey, I didn't take SH16 and decided to opt NH5 instead because of night driving is risky on the narrow SH16 as compared to NH16 which is a wider road.

I will rate journey as one of my best day journeys and I will love to repeat it again. Driving is a fun and such unplanned routes can be very thrilling.
