Introduction

India's hill stations offer a fascinating respite from the height of the plains and a unique window onto colonial life. Shimla was once the summer capital of the British Raj and the town retains and English feel. The best way to reach the city is via the scenic, narrow-guage Toy Train. The Victorian holiday resort of Darjeeling is a major tea growing area with a considerable Tibetan presence.
