There is Lakkar Bazaar ‘Wooden market,’ where you can find out different showpieces and other lovely gift items making this market even more special for the tourists to shop in.

However, throughout the winter times, it is quite hard to be there for long but then a lot of tourists prefer winter season only because of its beauty and snowfall.

There is no doubt, a large number of people you know or maybe you must have gone to the Ridge Road many times but quite rare people know that underneath the Ridge Road, there is a huge water tanker that stores more than 1000000 gallons of water for the British ear tourist town.

And in recent times, it has been declared as the main source of water supply for the overall Shimla.
