  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Chadwick Falls in Shimla

Situated amidst the dense Glen Forest, the waterfall is located at a distance of 7 km from Shimla and 4 km from Summer Hill. It's crystal clear water cascades down a deep gorge at a height of 86 metres. The surrounding hills and thick green trees of Deodar and Pine gives the place an exotic and beautiful look. One can relax here and enjoy some 'me' time after a hectic travel schedule.There is an interesting story behind the quirky name of the waterfall. Originally it was known as ‘Chidku Jhaar’ as a waterfall is called as ‘Jhaar’ in the local dialect and ‘Chidku’ means bird. The waterfall is so high that only a bird could reach at the top so it was named as Chidku Jhar. But the British people mispronounced it to ‘Chadwick Falls’. There is another popular folklore telling about a demon who was imprisoned by the local gods behind the rock. Locals believe that the water of the falls comes down from the mouth of the devil.Rain water is the main source of this fall so the best time to visit is monsoon or after the monsoon. Visitors should note that because it is located inside the forest it’s unsafe to go alone there; going around in groups is what we recommend
