Kufri Tourism

Kufri in Shimla district, Himachal Pradesh is one of the most sought after holiday destinations, and more so for couples, because of its proximity to Shimla and relatively higher altitude which makes it a place with snow all through the winters.

Kufri is just about 10 km from Shimla and is quite a retreat if you're in Shimla and snow is something which excites you. While there's not much to see in Kufri as such, but the panoramic views and temples after a bit of trekking are worth the time. Kufri itself is mostly treated as a spot for the tourists visiting Shimla and it is advisable to club sightseeing in Shimla or nearby areas like Chail, Mashobra, Naldehra or Narkanda as well if you intend to visit Kufri. Also, Kufri is a relatively crowded and popular attraction as almost everyone visiting Shimla comes here.

A single day in Kufri is enough to enjoy the terrain. Once you reach the top after a pony ride, you would want to enjoy your time playing with snow or clicking photographs. There are a few photo-points and the view makes up for the climb. You have the choice of going for go-karting at the Kufri Fun World, which has the highest Go-Karting track in the world. You might want to spend a longer time there, but you can instead come back by ponies and head to the Indira Tourist Park by afternoon after grabbing some lunch.

- Kufri is a small district known mainly for its winter adventures and treks. Be careful with children while going on mules and horses, as the path is slippery.- ALWAYS bargain. Kufri is a huge tourist spot, and the horse/mule/yak owners and shopkeepers, photographers might try to dupe you by quoting exorbitantly. Bargain everywhere.- The Kufri Fun World does lack some security measures, keep a track of your children while they are on the rides. Carry ample of thick woolen clothing, the temperatures dip way below 0 in peak winter seasons.- When on a trek, make sure you are carrying all essentials with you, including food and water. Longer treks need more things to be carried, prepare beforehand.- Even cab rates are flexible, do bargain.
