White mountains that rise high, a place where tourists can relax and de-stress completely from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Smooth clay used for making pottery is also found around this hill. That is why in the olden times, potters used to gather at this place to make pottery. Today in the modern era, due to lesser use of pottery, potters no longer come here. Tourists going to Summer Hill come here by toy train running every hour from Shimla railway station and after spending some time here they go back to Shimla by train.
