Shopping in Shimla

Shopping in Shimla is all about buying the local handicrafts and the main shopping areas in Shimla are along the Mall, the Subzi Mandi, and the Lakkar Bazaar.

The Mall road is the place shoppers love to explore, as there are several shops here that offer plethora of choices including woollen products, handicrafts, and handmade artefacts. The Kullu and Kinnauri shawls, mufflers and scarves, Pashmina shawls and the Tibetan carpets are some of the must-buys from Shimla.

Apart from shawls, there are Himachali caps, gloves, sweaters and socks, which you may buy from here. You may buy these woollen items either from the local shops or the state emporiums. Don’t forget to bargain and if you are not sure of bargaining skills then you may prefer to buy the products from state emporiums.

In case you are interested in some wooden work then you may head to Lakkar Bazaar where you will find various wooden products including walking sticks, toy, figurines, key-chains, pots, candle stands, kitchen ware and spoons that make for some great souvenirs to take back home.

Take a trip to the Tibetan Market if you want to buy Tibetan carpets, jewellery that can be purchased from the shops close to the ridge. Apart from this you may also like to buy juices, jams, squashes, pickles and sauces as they are also the best buys here.
