Mashobra(the hidden paradise) is another pretty town in the vicinity of Shimla which happens to be a popular tourist attraction in Himachal Pradesh. Popularly known as the Quieter Shimla, Mashobra, located 12 km from Shimla is famed for its untarnished charm. While mist-laden wind, pine trees, and apple orchard dominate its landscape, there are loads of soothing retreats that make Mashobra a popular choice to holiday in Himachal. I have seen lots of youngsters coming here to quench their thirst for adventure as they take activities like rafting, paragliding, rock climbing, bird watching and much more.
Excellent weather conditions year-round (23 degrees average temperature) make Mashobra a top summer destination in North India. No wonder why Mashobra features among the top weekend getaways from New Delhi. Even better, if you are looking to experience nature’s magnificence at its best, a Mashobra trip could be just the rewarding journey you would ever take.
Reserved Forest Sanctuary, Wildflower Hall, Mahasu Devta Temple, The Presidential Retreat, and Craignano are among the most popular attractions of Mashobra. Choose to stay a few days surrounded by nature’s quietude or plan adventures, Mashobra has plenty of surprises to leave you absolutely thrilled. The fact that Mashobra isn’t a popular tourist spot works in its favor.
It is highly recommended to visit this fascinating world tucked in the vast Himalayan alpines, with your friends. Annandale, Jakhoo Hill, Scandal Point, The Ridge, Mall Road, Shimla State Museum, Naldehra, Kufri, Christ Church, and Himalayan Bird Park are the popular tourist spots nearby and must be visited when you are finally getting back to Shimla!
