The Ridge, Shimla Reviews

  • Great place for nature lovers. Fog comes in and goes out. Literally one can feel there are on clouds. Watching the clouds down the mountain feels mesmerising. Great part is no vehicle is allowed. It looks beautiful during the night.

  • It's just another tourist spot on Mall road. If you like walking, climb up the mall road to reach the ridge. The quiet and calm of the place feels nice.

  • 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.

  • An exquisite view especially after dark. Maple hue lights add to the surreal experience.

  • Large open Space in the center of Beautiful Shimla. This wide open space is swarmed by locals tourists bored of the sightseeing. The road is lined with cafes, bars, boutiques, shops and restaurants attracting the huge crowd that visit the Mall Road. One can take home the photos set in the spectacular beauty of Shimla.
