Go to The Lift then go up. You can enjoy the scenic beauty with beautiful weather. Stuffs sold here are of no good quality. So drop your plans for purchasing gifts. Just enjoy the beauty. And go back again from lift.

Only Road in India where 4 Wheeler or 2 Wheeler not allowed. Your children may play on road including you. Enjoy Gulab Jamun of Baljee's and take veg dinner at Gupta Vaishav Bhojnalaya. Shoping available but its costly because U r prepare to spent. Buy Local wine of apple or Grapes if you want to gift or carry.

The Mall Road in Shimla is a highly over-rated place. To reach the place one has to park the car in a over crowded parking area and take 2 lifts to reach the Mall Road. The place is over crowded and has nothing exceptional to offer. The shops sell Cheap chinese goods and the shops selling Indian clothes and shawls... More

Even though I am a nationalist, we should tank the English for this! The Mall is the place to be in Shimla. The view, the architecture of the adjacent buildings, the horse rides, the parks and the flea market all add to the intricate appeal of this place. With a little more planning and perhaps a little less crowd on... More

The Mall is the main shopping street of Shimla. It also has many shops, book stores, toy shops, restaurants, snacks shops, ice cream parlors, bars, showrooms, department stores and cafes. Post Office, tourist office, municipal corporation, fire service and police headquarters are also located here. Automobiles, except emergency vehicles are not allowed on this road. For this reason, the locals... More

No matter what rating is given to The Mall or what review is written for it, it will remain the icon that it is. It pretty much defines Shimla, perhaps erroneously so. But you cannot separate The Mall from Shimla. The Mall is a stretch of two-three parallel roads at varying altitudes that serve as open markets. You can shop... More

Very clean, some decent views, some interesting British architecture and friendly locals. But could be so much more. Other places seem to sell better quality HP and surrounding state local products (and cheaper).

Nothing useful to buy here, you will be wasting your time. the walk is gentle and suitable for most people, however, open gutters and horse poo make you regret getting up to the peak, 'the ridge', another brilliant idea but kept unclean. The smell from public latrines hangs around at the top. Short horse rides along the top, makes you... More
