Photographer's Note

This is the Shivalik Express running on the Kalka-Shimla Railway. The narrow gauge railway was constructed between 1898-1903 and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. This early morning train ride through green mountains and dark tunnels as Sun rises on the distant hills, is by far the most enjoyable way to reach Shimla.
