Who we Are?

At Shimla Walks, all our walks are designed and developed after a personal reconnaissance and personal experience. With time we have developed our expertise in providing an entirely different Holiday Experience. We design all our walks, village visits, visits to the local families, birdwatching trips, and Yoga holidays after a great research, and personal reconnaissance of itineraries to meet your gratification.

We are a team of Tourism Professionals, Writers, Authors, Naturalists, Photographers, Mountaineers, Explorers, Wanderers, and lovers of the Himalayas. We work hard, very hard to make your dreams come true, and create first-hand experiences for you. The places in the Himalayas which cannot be accessed by transport we access them on foot. Walking is the best way to see and enjoy nature. When you come up to the hills and are already exhausted by your travel, pollution, smog, and humidity we bring comforts to your feet.

How do we Work

Walks in Shimla
Bird Watching
We are not a hotel booking agency. We are also not transporters or just holiday sellers. Neither, we offer the traditional Golden Triangle or Silver Dual.

We are away from the regular tourist circuits and offer you entirely different experiences. We keep exploring the remote trails, try to show you the life on the concept of Back to Basics and, take you away from your daily hectic schedule.

For our Multiday tours, we use Homestays and Heritage Stays which are away from the main crowd and offer excellent experiences and service. All types of stays are recommended after personal inspections and experience.


How we work

For the last twenty years we have been traveling in the hills still keep exploring them. A visit to some remote village, stay with some local family, camp in the wilderness, A Family History Tour, A festival holiday, or Corporate travel, we know what to offer and how to organize.

We conduct complete research before any of our trips are finalized and offered. This practice is an essential part of our profession.

We think big but remain careful about the details, so we pay full attention and complete focus on the continual improvement of our holiday products to meet your expectations.
