On the National Highway 22, approx. 20km away from Shimla, a small hill station called Kufri is located. Kufri is a word that means Lake. The panoramic views, mountains, snow, and trekking are the main attractions of the place. As it is near to Shimla, almost everyone visiting Shimla comes here. The major place that attracts tourists is Kufri fun world, located 2800 metres above sea level, having the highest Go-kart track in the world.
Another adventurous activity that allure is snow skiing. Kufri is termed as the winter sports capital of Shimla. Hundreds of skiers flocked to the place during mid- December to early February.
Mahasu peak is the highest peak in Kufri which can only travel on horse/mule. For the wildlife enthusiast, Himalayan National Park is the hotspot where one can witness more than a hundred species of birds and animals.
One unique thing to do in Kufri is a Yak ride. Tourists can visit beautiful landscapes and snow covered mountains while traveling on Yaks.
The best time to visit Kufri is from December to March when snowfall occurs at its peak. Those who want to enjoy winter sports and snow skiing must visit during these months. But if you have to feel the cool breeze and want to get rid of the scorching summer of plains, one can visit during summers in the months April to June.
