I would suggest visiting  during August-September, just after moonson to see the full effect of the amazing greenery of the forests and ecosystem.

Places to visit in : –

It is a temple town, so there are a plenty of temples like Hanuman temple, Kali temple and Tara Devi temple. Apart from that there are ample apportunites for Treeking and camping trips like one provided by CampRoxx.  Jakhoo Hills is also enjoyable during sunrise and sunset. Other sightseeing opportunities are Annandale, Mashobra and Kufri .

Shoghi was established to cater to the growing Shimla , which was unable to support its population. You can visit Shoghi while you are visiting Shimla as it is just 5 kilometers from Shimla towards the Tara temple road .It is best for staying during summers , but should be avoided during winters and moonsoon as the road connecting the two cities becomes inaccessible due to snow . During the summers when Shimla is overcrowded you can stay in Shoghi and use a private cab to travel to Shimla during the day . People who are looking for a peaceful place whereas would love Shoghi and can spend up-to a day in here esp. Couples . You can reach here by first travelling to Shimla and then hiring a private vehicle .
