Delhi to Shimla Bus service is excellent and at regular intervals on daily basis. First of all, I am not a professional writer. I just want to share my experiences. My bus journey was rather simple not as exciting as you like to know. The real good starts when they run it. The Driver starts the Bus and you would rather close your eyes for 10 hours. Because after 8 to 10 hour; you will see yourself in land of paradise, “The Shimla”. That would take you to the colonial era of our past. Houses of wood! You can never think of that.
