In such a situation, if you are also looking for some new places, then let us tell you about a place which lies between Shimla and Kufri. We are talking about the Fagu place located in Himachal, it is a village to say, but it gives competition to big famous places in terms of travel.
Why go to Fagu instead of Shimla-Kufri?
Shimla is a beautiful place but due to overcrowding, a lot has changed here. That means there is always a crowd here from noon to night. In such a situation, instead of going in peace, people’s holidays turn into noise. In such a situation, Fagu is the only place which can give you both peace and relaxation. This place is only 18 km away from Shimla. Let me tell you, the temperature here is always 6 to 7 degree Celsius less than Shimla. Because of which fog remains here for 9-10 months of the year. In winter, it receives more snow than Shimla-Kufri.
