Three old hiking routes to reopen in the iconic Glen Forest of Shimla

Hikers rejoice–Shimla is set to reopen three of its old trails snaking their way through the iconic Glen Forest, which is already quite popular for casual strolls and picnics. The Himachal Pradesh Forest Department has revealed that two of these paths (Brass Path and Whispering Path) have already been restored, with a third (Jaldhara) in the works. Visitors can enjoy the emerald landscape of Shimla for as little as ₹20; and if they’re not particularly handy with a map, they could take a guide along (₹150 for groups with up to five people; ₹20 for each additional person). One could perch on one of the newly built photography towers for a bird’s-eye view, or enjoy a siesta on the many benches that dot the trails. In short, a buffet of opportunities lies in wait.
