Theog, Shimla Overview

A quiet escape and one of the less crowded attractions of the state, Theog in Himachal Pradesh, warmly wrapped in the arms of the mighty Himalayas, has everything a popular hill station can give you minus the tourist rush. 32 km away from the main town of Shimla, Theog makes up for a beautiful weekend getaway in the hills, comfortably located in the lap of nature. It is also considered one of the most favourite camping site options for campers.

Much away from the chaotic atmosphere of cities and the excited shouts of joy and chatter of popular tourist destinations, Theog can be called an underrated destination, which in fact works in its favour, away from the city jazz and close to the lost tranquilly of nature.

More on Theog


Theog mostly experiences pleasant weather all around the calendar. Generally, October and November are considered better months to visit as the climate and the hamlet are in its best form then. It gets extremely cold here after November with the mercury falling sharply accompanied by mild or heavy snowfall.

For travelling within the town, local buses and taxies are available. Shared jeeps are also available for locals and tourists.

There are limited options to choose from in Theog. However, there still are ample choices to suit different budgets. Most tourists prefer the state's PWD guest house because it is in the budget, provides a comfortable stay and is well connected by road. There are 3 and 4-star resorts also available in the township.

The people of Theog are simple in their way, revelling in the little joys of life. Their main occupation is farming, with the women equally participating with the male members of the family. The popular languages spoken here include Pahadi and Hindi. While in Theog, interact with the locals and experience their simple ways of life. The connoisseurs of folk music can enjoy the Pahadi folk music, especially during the Summer Festival which is celebrated here every year. Theog is one of those places which lets you see the unadulterated rural way of life from up close.

1. If travelling by train, board a bus from Kalka. It is not only pocket-friendly but also, it gives you the opportunity to meet and interact with the locals.
2. Try to go on walks in Theog. This small hamlet in Shimla is mostly about nature, the raw existence of it and it gives you a chance to go, explore it in its original form, unadulterated and just as it is. Don't miss out on that.
