Kalka to Shimla by train takes more or less 5 hrs, fare Rs.48 in 2nd class.

Kalka to Shimla by bus takes 3.5 hrs, fare Rs.50.

Kalka to Shimla by taxi costs Rs.100, takes 3 hrs.

Now, the choice is yours.

Thanks Ashis, that was useful info. Btw is the taxi fare Rs 100/- or Rs 1000/- since some of the earlier reviews had said that taxi is exhorbitant and costs Rs1500- 2000
