The Mall is the best place for shopping in Shimla. The government run emporiums and several private outlets offer great shopping in Shimla. Another popular shopping place is the Lower Bazaar, which is also known as the Subzi Mandi. This place is absolutely chaotic yet full of life. There are endless mazes of narrow lanes merging into one another and just when you think there is a dead end ahead, you find another lane full of shops selling just about anything you can think of! One thing that must feature in your shopping cart in Shimla is the walking sticks which are available in Lakkar Bazaar (lakkad means wood), which is quite famous for wooden souvenirs. The Kullu and Kinnauri shawls and the Tibetan carpets are simply splendid and worth buying. Also the Kinnauri mufflers and scarfs and other Kinnauri winter garments are highly in demand. Besides the Pashmina shawls are something to watch out for. The Tibetan jewelries can be bought from the shops closer to the ridge.
