THE CHARABARA CIRCUIT At a distance of 9 kms from Shimla, this hilltop village is dotted by small houses, and a grand view of the Himalayas, stretching from Kullu to Kinnaur. A favorite with old timers, Charabara also houses, The Retreat, the President's Summer Abode.
The hike begins from Charabara and ascends to the helipad located on an adjacent hillock. The initial path till the helipad is along a tarmac road that winds past the Punjab Raj Bhavan, a vestige from the days when Shimla was also the summer capital of Punjab. From the helipad, that commands a 360-degree view of Shimla and the Himalayan ranges, a footpath penetrates the surrounding forests and descends on to the Old Hindustan-Tibet Road, completed in 1853 by enterprising British engineers as an access route to Tibet. A short stroll along this ancient road, lined by apple orchards on one side, culminates at the school for handicapped children, a landmark from where the loop back towards the hotel begins. Here, in season, one can indulge in a frenzied apple-picking session that the various apple trees growing wild all around the school offer.
The trail continues along a vintage cart track that once belonged to the Commissioner for the Hill States, a British officer whose residence was converted into the Presidential Retreat, the traditional summer vacation destination of the President of India. From the Retreat, a tarmac road leading back to Charabara offers magnificent views of the eternal snow-capped Great Himalayan Range and the Shali peak.You enjoy a picnic lunch by the hotel. From here, continue on the offbeat trail to Kufri climbing upto 8600 feet. The helipad up from Wildflower Hall commands the best views of the countryside and of course Kufri with its pony rides and mini zoo (though crowded in season) is a must do! .There is also the Kufri fun world for children with many rides. After all of this, an evening of relaxation at the palace.
