Indeed, the Himalayas have held a special place in India's spiritual consciousness since ancient times.

Spa in Wildflower Hall Shimla Bordered by Tibet and Kashmir in the north and Punjab in the south, the mountainous state of Himachal Pradesh lies in the Western Himalayas, which extend across 500 km and comprise 16 ridges, broken by the river Sutlej. The region incorporates some of the greatest mountaineering terrain in the world, including the high altitude area of the Cold Desert and the valleys of Spiti and Lahaul, with their stark, elemental beauty. Set in the midst of these imposing ranges, at a height of 2500 meters (8250 feet) above sea level, Mashobra is situated on a traverse spur, well known as Asia's largest watershed with the water basins of the Indus on one side and the Ganges on the other.

The historic Hindustan-Tibet road initiated by Lord Dalhousie in 1850 links Mashobra and Shimla. Cut into the side of precipices that descend into deep ravines and hillsides densely covered with deodar forests, the road passes through colourful roadside bazaars and the Sanjauli tunnel. The road was finally completed at the turn-of-the-century in Lord Kitchener's time. Mashobrašs bustling, local bazaar provides the locals with day-to-day essentials, while its fertile, terraced fields grow fruit, vegetables and flowers to supply Shimla and the surrounding area with the freshest of produce.
