    Good place for family visit
    Good place to visit and hang our and enjoy scenes of mountains. But be wary of local himachali touts who will missell you photography and other services at exorbitant rates. You need to negotiate hard with these people.

    The Ridge Shimla - Must Visit
    Only i have the regret that I couldn't spend the entire day here. It is a must visit and a nice place to spend some time relaxing. Just beside Mall Road Shimla a nice place to be and stay for entire day and relax.

    A touristy place that you will like
    One of the best places in Shimla if you love being in touristy places. It has a crowd, it has a good view - a perfect setting for someone to spend some time here. You can click a lot of photos here.

The Ridge is dotted with many Victorian-inspired architectures and with viewpoints of the surrounding hill stations. It is also an excellent spot for people watching!

There are lot to do on The Ridge. People throng here for full here. There are restaurants, snacks shops, juice bars for food. One can do short distance horse riding on the left side of ridge. This leads to Lakkar Bazar for wooden gift items & souvenirs. There are several statues of prominent political leaders of India and Himachal Pradesh all around The Ridge. There is Christ Church and a Library on the right side of The Ridge. An artificial water fall with colourful lights in the evening behind Mahatama Gandhi statue attracts lots of people. The open space on The Ridge makes it suitable for social gatherings and political meetings and rallies. One can see the beautifully illuminated Lord Hanuman statue on the Jakhoo Hill Temple. It is the most frequented place in Shimla.

An open space with a church on one side and rows of benches on both sides, a park adjoining old Gaiety Club now named Amateur Dramatics Club, a restaurant can make any visitor relax , feeling on the top of the world while enjoying scenic beauty of the place all around.
