In the heart of Shimla the Ridge has some great views. It is cool in the evenings so go prepared with a warm wrap. Lots of families and couples out for a stroll as well looking at the views.

Its inevitable if you are at Shimla. Come here to relax take a walk and enjoy some fresh air. The road nearby leads to Lakkar bazar.

Ridge is a nice place to spend an evening in shimla. Just go there with your family or friends and freek around for say an hour of two. Choose one of the restaurants or buy an ice-cream to enjoy the colonial touch of shimla,

A wonderful place to wander and take photos. The views of the Himalayas are amazing. You are 2000 metres up and you really do feel it

We visit THE RIDGE on 26-Jan-2019 evening. Place is overcrowded due to public holiday. Most of travelers visit at evening time only. The whole place covered with snow except the ground. Walkable distance from Shimla city.
