Photographer's Note

This is the view of Solan valley which is situated in Himachal Pradesh. I took this shot from the toy train which goes from Kalka to Shimla.
The valley is known for its fruit orchards. Fruits like Stone fruits, Kiwi fruit, hazelnut, persimmon, pear, oranges, lemons, grapes and apples all grow hear very well because of the lovely climate (not very hot and not very cold as well). A number of type of nuts also grow here. The main small-scale industry of this area is fruit processing, which is supplied to cities in the Great Indian plains where the summer heat does not allow these kind of fruits to grow.
I tasted some pear and oranges on my return journey back to Calcutta and they were simply the best I have ever had! Very delicious.
Thanks for visiting.
