    Fagu near Shimla

    Fagu is a very small village around 22kms away from Shimla which gives the real feel of Himalaya and its a place totally away from the noise of big cities. The place is totally surrounded by snow covered mountains and and got the highest peak near Shimla (snow point at 9000ft.). If you are planing your trip to Fagu then remember you will not find any market, mall or any modern facility in this town, all what you can get here is good view of snow covered mountains, fruit gardens, potato farms, cool and calm atmosphere endowed with romantic ambiance. Just to give a better idea, Fagu got its name from fog itself

    How to reach:
    Keep driving straight from Shilma to Kufri to Fagu


    Delhi to Fagu distance: 371 km (takes around 10 hours)
    Chandigarh to Fagu distance: 134 km (takes around 4 hours)
    Shimla to Fagu distance: 20 km (takes around 40 minutes)
    Kufri to Fagu distance: 5 km (takes around 15 minutes)

    My last trip to Fagu was full of excitement and yes I got many wonderful clicks here, sharing a few of them.

    Fagu is one of the best and beautiful tourist attraction sport near at the Shimla. During the flower season people can enjoy beautiful apple orchards in Fagu, Terrace-farmed fields giving an eye catching view, an atmosphere is very cool and fresh because that sport is surrounded by Tall Deodar trees. Then there are some best hotels are also available in Fagu for it's visitors.

    There are many places like Tataa paani, Chail, Kufri and if you are willing to extend your trip then look forward for Dharamshala too

    Those are some wonderful pictures. Which camera do you use? The frame is pretty wide for a hotshot so I am guessing it is something with a decent lense.
