If you head to shimla, Ridge is the one place you cannot avoid. Full of life and tourism. Great views, rides, photo spots and what not. Visit in the afternoon and stay till evening to enjoy clouds coming down to touch you.

Great hangout place, many street vendors present in the vicinity and food is never an issue. I would recommend going thier early morning to enjoy the clouds striking the hill side.

Beautiful place with a lot of shops to browse. The inclines of the roads are well worth traversing for the breath taking views. Good to visit in the morning and evening to avoid the sun

The Ridge is situated near the church. From this place you can see the entire Himalayan (depends upon the weather condition). It is one of the most important place in Shimla. Very calm and just go there and relax.
