Nestled in the heart of Shimla, the Ridge is the social and cultural hub of the town, replete with majestic vistas of the snow-laden mountains set against the multi-hued sky.

This retreat’s charm increases when winter sets in…

The blanket of snow falls over the town, covering the rhododendron, pine and oak forests and the ridge all in white. Transforming into a magical winter wonderland, the town beckons adventure enthusiasts and travellers to experience its white landscape.
