The Ridge, Shimla

4.5
Stroll down The Ridge, a huge walkway running alongside Mall Road, a famous shopping center. The west end of the walkway joins with this major road, with the east end housing a bazaar filled with wooden crafts. In between, the walkway abounds with shops, food vendors, and landmarks. Keep your eyes peeled for a 19th-century neo-Gothic church and an early 20th-century library. You can also locate three statues of important local figures: Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, and Dr. Y.S. Parmar, the first chief minister of Himachal Pradesh. Make The Ridge a centerpiece of your Shimla vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shimla trip planning site .

  • It's best place to have a walk in Shimla and really famous for its scenic beauty. All people come here just to take snap with this holy church .In night view become much beautiful.It is also having some shops around which offers you different kind of snacks which will keep you energetic during your travel to this area.
  • The Ridge, called The Mall is a great place to stroll about during either the day or night. Lots of shops about, sights to see, places to see and wonderful views. What is surprising is that the local governments have banned smoking and spitting in the centre - so as a result there are no cigarette fumes and the area is really clean and tidy - no litter either! If you are lucky you get to see local theatre players, dancers, singers or entertainers in the outdoor mini arena. A really lovely area.
