Create an itinerary including The Ridge
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.

  • The main attraction of Shimla -The Ridge. You can spend beautiful evening with your family by walking on the ridge which connects to Mall Road. Take a look at beautiful city view. Click some great pictures, have some street food.. and what not. You can enjoy your time here by doing nothing but just looking at the people, observing them…
  • A large open space in the center of Shimla and key attraction to tourists. The Ridge road towards east leads to Lakkar bazar and other side to western join of mall road and to Vidhansabha. The landmark Christ Church of Shimla is located here on the Ridge maidan. Now there are several statues including Gandhiji, Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji, Dr YS Parmar ( first CM of HP). You can simply visit, sit and observe the breathtaking beauty of Shimla. A must visit place.
