I am planning to visit SHIMLA during DECEMBER

I am planning to visit SHIMLA in DECEMBER - 2010.

I wanted to know "Is this very cold and difficult to stay at SHIMLA during the month of DECEMBER". Basically I am from a state where winter temberature falls to Min 8-10'C.

Secondly I wanted to know How much the HOTEL fare (budget hotels) cost ( per day) during this season. Whether I have to book the hotels in advance or I can get it after reaching there.

If anybody who can help me regarding this, I would be very greatful to him/her.

Shimla will be pretty cold in December. You need to carry proper winter gears. Usually, from Dec 20 to Jan 10 is the peak season in Shimla. Do not expect discount within that period. You need to book your accommodation well in advance if your dates fall in that slot.

There are so many budget hotels in Shimla. I think, you must get a hotel within Rs.1500 +.

Yes,Shimla is very cold in winter and sometime with snow around.

This year temp. in summer reached abve 30 degree centigrade during summer and it was quite unusual. May be it is affect of global warming.

Fagu is not in Shimla, it's some 20 KMs. away from Shimla.

As I said earlier also HPTDC Peterhof in Shimla is not up to the mark. There are better hotels in that range.
