- Sightseeing is an extremely fulfilling and rapturing experience, but the places are a bit distant from each other. You might want to consider spending for the transportation.
- If you're on a budget, carry all basic products like water, dry foodstuff, toilet paper etc. with you. If you're staying at a low budget hotel, such amenities may not be readily available.
- Campers/hikers, make sure you have all permissions ready beforehand.

Lovely place to visit..the most amazing part, it's just 12 kms away from hustle bustle of Shimla.. One important point, try to have extra food stuff with you as much of the options are not available Great place if you are reaching by your own vehicle.

It is hidden within Shimla and is a complete kit to undergo adventure, meet nature and experience history. The mountains here call for adventurous people to encounter river rafting, paragliding and trekking. The heritage and structure calls for history lovers to relive the British era and experience a moment into the flashback. The markets and the living culture will let one feel the simplicity and long living traditions. It is a saying 'Little things are beautiful and beautiful things are rare', Mashobra is that little town holding its beauty to drive you away from your busy life and provide you real inner peace.
