Shimla was discovered by the British in 1819, and became favorite destination of British officials in summer as a hill station and convalescent centre. Shimla was accessed by two-wheel carts drawn by ponies under the auspices of the “Mountain Car Company”. Municipal Committee came into existence in 1851 and was responsible for establishment of Town Hall and Gaiety Theatre. Shimla was declared the Summer Capital of Government of India in 1864. This paved a way to Grand Hindustan-Tibet road. Peter Hoff and Vice Regal became official residence of Viceroy.
The surrounding mountain scenery lures tourists to Manali year-round. Domestic tourists come here for honeymoons and mountain views, while foreigners come for adventure sports or, more commonly, to hang out in the hippie villages around the main town. Until the 1960s there was nothing here but a few old stone houses and temples, but modern Manali is crammed with concrete hotels and the town is in severe need of some town planning – stay in the villages of Vashisht or Old Manali for a more peaceful mood.
