Shimla Flights

The closest airport to Shimla is in Jubbarhatti, just 23km out of the city. This is the most convenient way to travel to Shimla but not the only way. There are overnight buses that run from Delhi which take approximately ten hours, while other buses travel during the day. See your travel agent or the Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) for itineraries.

Another way is to first make your way to Kalka, approximately four hours from Delhi. From here you can take the Toy Train (one of the highlights in going to Shimla) which will take you on a scenic 4 6hour journey, passing through 103 tunnels on your way. This track has recently been granted World Heritage Site status and well worth it if you aren’t in any hurry as the views are incredible.

Once you have arrived in Shimla, getting around can be challenging. No vehicles are allowed on the main stretch, known as the Mall, although taxis do operate to and from this area.
