Mall Road is an happening place in Shimla.
This mini-world on a hill is a perfect blend of commercialism and charm. Yes, it’s touristy, but it’s also a fun and vibrant hub that you just can’t miss!
To give you a quick rundown, Mall Road is a pedestrian-only stretch in Shimla that’s filled with restaurants, shops, and everything in between. You’ll find some amazing handcrafted items, woollen clothes, books, and jewellery here. And let’s not forget the wooden furniture shops that are a must-visit. If you’re looking for some antique pieces, this is the place to be!
But here’s the catch, folks. No vehicles are allowed on the Mall Road, except for emergency ones. So, to reach there from the main road down the hill, you gotta hop on the Himachal Tourism Development Corporation lift. But don’t worry, it’s a fun ride and costs only INR 10.
Now, let’s talk about the best part of the Mall Road – the food! From local delicacies to international cuisines, you’ll find everything here. We highly recommend the Honey Hut, where everything comes with a drizzle of honey. And for those who love to pair their food with drinks, Cafe Sol is your go-to spot. But honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of the cafes and restaurants here.
Oh, and did we mention that visiting the Mall Road in the evening is a whole different experience? The calming breeze, the beautiful view, and the cozy atmosphere will make you forget all your worries. Just remember to carry a light sweater or shawl because it can get a bit chilly.
So, what are you waiting for? Head over to the Shimla Mall Road and experience the hustle and bustle of this mini-world. Just make sure to leave your vehicle behind and hop on the lift for a fun ride up!
