Shimla-Sarahan-Wangtoo-Rampur-Shimla (2 days; Difficulty: Easy): This drive is essentially through the valley 'behind' Shimla. It is along the old Hindustan-Tibet road a.k.a. NH 22. The road initially travels east by north east along the Shimla ridge before dropping down into the valley. Here it follows the mighty Sutlej River all the way till Rampur, climbing steadily all the way till Sarahan. There is a famous and beautifully crafted temple and place complex at Sarahan. From Sarahan, the road winds through a long but narrow gorge, with the Sutlej swiftly flowing by at the bottom of the gorge. Turn around at Wangtoo, a few kilometers in side Kinnaur district, where the landscape begins to change from one that is covered by deciduous trees to that of a high altitude desert.
