A haven for skiing enthusiasts, this picturesque retreat lying at the foothills of the Himalayas, makes for a great one-day-trip from Shimla. Kufri is one of the most popular tourist spots in Himachal Pradesh that draws large crowds with its stunning views and serene environment. A popular activity in Kufri during the summer season is taking a thrilling horse ride amidst narrow winding roads covered with dense pine forests. Kufri looks most beautiful in winter when the surroundings are covered in a thick blanket of snow and tourists from all parts of the country arrive to witness fresh snow falls. Kufri also provides a great chance to indulge in several adventure activities like camping, hiking, tobogganing (riding in a sledge) and trekking. The Travel and Tourism department of Himachal Pradesh organises an annual Winter Sports Festival, in February, which attracts skiing enthusiasts from all corners of the world. The Himalayan Nature Park is Kufri's most popular stopover that offers tourists the opportunity to spot numerous birds and animals like goral, serows, musk deer, leopards and black bears. Perched at a height of 2,501 m above sea level, Kufri lies on the outskirts of the city of Shimla.
