Mashobra, Shimla
A Valley Retreat
Mashobra, Shimla, Himanchal Pradesh
Tucked away in the between mountains decorated with apple orchards, oaks, deodars, and pines, ZostelX Mashobra offers the perfect blend of a laid-back escape and an adventurous holiday. You’ll be welcomed to our pleasant abode with a garden and a sprawling front yard, the ideal spaces for spending leisure time reading, sipping tea, or stargazing. On one end lies a glimmering stone-and-wood cottage that serves as the hang-out area and teems with the games of billiards and table tennis. Embracing the breezes and sunshine are the rooms, that come with personal balconies so that you always have a piece of the mountainous landscape to yourself. Adding to the comfort of fluffy beds and utterly warm blankets are the home-cooked meals here, which are delicious, filling, and everything you’d love to have up North. The house is hosted by the Sood family, who have been a part of Himachal Pradesh since forever.

HIGHLIGHTS AND ACTIVITIES
Adventure Activities: A true adventure hotspot, Mashobra will surely surprise you with the rich offerings that it never boasts about. Summers are made exciting with paragliding, quad biking, and white-water rafting, whereas winter brings bouts of snow, and with that, the opportunity to go skiing. You can engage yourself in a conversation with our hosts to dig some more into these activities and where are they best done.
Hikes Like any pretty little village of Himachal Pradesh, Mashobra is made up of gorgeous landscapes, and a walk anywhere outside is going to be a treat to the eye. There are some big and small hikes too, like the one to the Fagu village or to the Tattapani stream. A small walk to Chharabra is refreshing and simple and takes you to the President’s retreat home. To know more walks that you could take, you can have a word with the hosts.
Village Walk Mashobra is a miniscule town full of apple orchards, deodars, oaks, and pines. There’s also a Tibetan Handicraft Market at the square, along with small shops that sell samosa, chai, and North Indian sweets. A village walk would treat you with slow scenes of a small town, with the kids walking back from the school or the men taking the cattle for a graze.
Kufri (18km, 56 min) If you’ve never been to the tourist hub of Kufri, it makes for a decent day trip. Here, you can hike up to the famous Mahasu Peak in summers or go skiing in winters.
Naldehra (18 km, 40 min) The town of Naldehra is a day trip in itself, with attractions like the Golf Course, Chadwick Falls, Craignano Nature Park, and Shaily Peak to look forward to. Naldehra is perennially covered in snow in winters, which makes for a great sight too.
Shimla (15 km, 41 min) One of the towns of Himachal that mountain-lovers keep frequenting, the queen of hills has prolific sunsets and a hustling little lane to offer. The Ridge and the mall road are the two places you want to check out here, for shopping, exploring Shimla’s culture, landscape views, and picturesque scenes of cascading colourful houses all alike.
