Chandigarh To Shimla Via Timber Trail This was the route we took: After tucking in good breakfast, we checked out of Hometel and headed for Himalayan Expressway. We decided to visit Timber Trail at Parwanoo en route as recommended by PaddleShifter and rajankamboj. I searched for Timber Trail in PoI in my MMI navigator. It showed the route via NH 22, which I sincerely followed. After driving on the 4-laned Himalayan Expressway for distance, my MMI navigator guided me to turn towards left leaving 4-laned road to 2-laned NH 22 through Pinjaur, Kalka and Parwanoo towns. I listened to my navigator, which was a bad decision. While reaching Timber Trail, the beautiful 4-laned Kalka bypass joined NH 22! Timber Trail has resorts both at the base and top of the mountain. We enjoyed the rope-way cable car ride costing Rs 650 per head. Later, we continued our journey and reached HPTDC Holiday Home, Shimla by 4:30 pm. Fellow-TFI'ian rajankamboj was kind enough to meet me at at the hotel amidst his hectic schedule. He gave valuable tips for our Kinnaur-Spiti-Lahaul trip. He suggested some shops in The Mall for our shopping. The last, but not the least, he presented me with a Himachali cap. Thanks a lot, rajankamboj.::T TFI rocks! More in the queue.
