Top 10 reasons to visit Shimla

1. The Mall

On walking up to The Mall—Shimla’s main street, you’ll come across the loveliest sights. Home to some famous local attractions like the Christ Church and markets operating from vintage colonial buildings, The Mall is truly the heart of this hill station.

The old Viceregal Lodge is perhaps the most resonant of old structures in Shimla. If you go there by foot, there are interesting stops on this 2-hour walk from the Mall.

3. Jakhoo Hill

Jakhoo Hill, towering over the ridge, is Shimla’s highest point, with a Hanuman Temple on top. The huge red Hanuman statue built in front of the temple is clearly visible from The Mall and the Ridge. Sunset views here are especially magnificent during the monsoons.

4. Heritage Walks in Shimla

Shimla is best discovered on foot. Opt for the Heritage Walking Tours, one of the most famous walking tours in India, to explore the rich history of this hill station.
