Malcha Mahal to be restored + The Ridge (New Delhi, India)


Dear colleagues,


Many of you are familiar with Malcha Mahal, a hunting lodge in ruins at The Ridge, very close to AES. Google Maps.


In 2019 The New York Times published this article.

Yesterday, The Hindustan Times published another article, saying that if all goes well, in 5-6 months a restoration project may begin, to make Malcha Mahal a tourist attraction.


As it is now, it is a hidden gem very close to school, you hardly meet anybody there (well, since January, maybe because of this project coming up, there is a security guy there).

If you haven´t been there yet, check it out before there is a newly restored Malcha Mahal. From the top there are fantastic views of The Ridge, Rashtrapati Bhavan and the Parliament.




Also, The Ridge is a fantastic park to run or walk. It is totally wild, it feels like being in the forest. Here are some tracks that you could follow.

AES-The Ridge-AES (8,88km)

AES-The Ridge-AES (11,57km)

The Ridge (11,58km)

During the whole route you are under the shade of trees, so perfect for this season.


Have a great week!
