Cheapest package for Shimla

Shimla package Naldehra

Shimla Package as a standard can be completed in 2 nights 3 days. Since the number of days is lesser the package gets cheaper. However, you cannot cover all of the sightseeing in just 3 days so you may increase the number of days to explore more from Shimla. In this page, we will consider that you have 3 days in total for the tour. Also, this package is recommended only if you are traveling from Chandigarh since travel time is lesser from Chandigarh. For the people traveling from Delhi, this package is not that suitable since you will be traveling most of the time.

In this article, we will consider Chandigarh as pick up and drop city
