Many things have changed since we grew up, for the people living in North of India, Shimla is not in the list of WOW places. But yes if anyone visits Shimla, no wonder he/she will be found wandering on the MALL road. (nowhere else to go).

A must in your itinerary when visiting Shimla. An amazing place to stroll without caring for vehicular traffic. No vehicular traffic is allowed on this road. Experience the ZERO pollution environment and give your lungs a healthy breath. Best during evenings.

A good range of shops selling all manner of goods. Every trader I met was helpful and keen, polite and not over-pushy

Shimla, Himachal’s capital, is India’s largest and most famous hill station. It is noticeably different from much of the rest or India. For starters, it is noticeably cleaner. Smoking in public is banned, as are plastic bags, dropping litter and spitting in the street. It also has an important history, especially relating to the partition negotiations leading in the run-up... More

A walk on Mall road takes you to Indian Summers pre independence with colonial architecture. This road highlights the life colonists lived and ruled in India in the Indian Summer Capital. The Christ Church, GPO, and the buildings is a must visit and has good view of the Himalayas on clear days.
