I hiked down to the Glen during my 3 day visit in Shimla. It's a nice destination to get out of Shimla and into the solitude of the amazing hills around here. Don't expect any huge waterfalls or rivers. It's small but very beautiful. I hiked back via Annandale which for me was the highlight of this trip.

Glen is near to Vidhan Sabha of Shimla , the flace is sorrounded by thick devdar forests which makes it feel so awesome, one can enjoy a view of Shimla Valley from here.

Once you go here you might not want to move from your place for the next 2 hours as this place is so beautiful. Nice landscape and mountains covered with blue water which makes it a perfect place to be. Very nice and a must visit place for every adventurous traveler.

I found Shimla Glen is a nice place if you are fond of trekking and some adventurous activities. This is a very beautiful place as there are breathtaking views of Shimla once you reach that place after trekking.

It is completely surrounded by pine trees. I also visited Military museum which is... More
