The Ridge, Shimla Reviews

  • I have been born and brought up in Shimla and have been going to The Ridge since childhood. But every time, it feels great as always. Fresh air, no vehicles around, people walking-happy and cheerful, kids riding horses, tourists enjoying themselves. The historic Christ Church in the background adds beauty to the landscape. In winters, the snow clad Ridge looks even more mesmerizing. Perfect place to be for anyone and everyone, any time of the year.

  • Wide open place, just to relax the enjoy the beauty of nature. Best time is in the evening. Loved this place. Better to go there on Christmas. You will find a jackpot here.

  • A beautiful open space where one can just take a stroll, sit and relax. No vehicles are allowed (except emergency). Night time is the best when you have clear view of the sky. Stars are clearly visible something which is a rarity in polluted metros. Horse riding facility is available. It's a.hit with children and tourists. Couple of icecream joints esp. Softy. Beneath the ridge is underground water tank built by the Britishers. Most of the festivals like summer festival and other events like winter carnival is held here.

  • Stunning views and what a lovely place. Could get better though but still a great place

  • It's a great place to visit. View from ridge is beautiful. The view becomes even more wonderful at night.
