A 96-kilometer railway line between Kalka and Shimla, in the Shivalik hills, was laid in 1903. The hill track passes over 864 bridges, thru 102 tunnels and around 900 sharp curves, and the longest of all tunnels on the route, at Barog is a little over a kilometre in length. The maximum speed you can expect to reach on the journey is... fasten your seat belts... 30km/h!
