This is the enchantment of nature's generous bounty. To the north, awesome snow ranges race across the horizon. In the cool breezes that flow down from them, they hold oak and rhododendron forests, stately cedars and wafting pines. There are tufts of ferns and wild flowers. There are langcridly strolling mists, spectacular sunsets and winter's deep blue skies. The air is clear crisp. A single day will bind you for a lifetime, for they say that shimla is like a wonderful habit.
