Shimla and Ludhiana are almost at the same distance from the equator. Why is Shimla much colder than Ludhiana ??

Could anybody help me with this ???


As altitude increases temperature will decrease considerably. Shimla is situated in quiet higher altitude than ludhiana. So shimla is much more colder than ludhiana

The temperature of a place is determined by it altitude or height above the sea level. On climbing every 166 metres, there is fall of 1°C in temperature. Whereas the altitude of Shimla is 2205 metres and that of Ludhiana is  255m mts. It is thus, obvious that Shimla will be cooler than Ludhiana.
