Places to Visit in Mashobra  

  • Reserve Forest Sanctuary

Reserve forest sanctuary houses one of Asia's largest watersheds, the main source of water for Shimla. Besides, the sanctuary is one of the best places to visit in Himachal Pradesh for birdwatching. You can spot the Himalayan eagle, chukars, partridges, and many other bird species along the park's lush green coniferous tree covers. 

  • Tattapani River

Tattapani river's hot water spring near Tattapani village is considered to have medicinal value. The river is also known for its ferocious rapids, making it a less crowded river rafting alternative than the usual rafting destinations like Rishikesh and Manali. 

  • Chadwick Falls

Surrounded by pine and deodar trees deep inside the Glen forest, Chadwick Falls is one of the most scenic places near Mashobra. The view of the crystal-clear water cascading down from a height of 86 meters is an enchanting experience that can trigger a range of emotions in travellers. 

The largely unspoiled place, with its unmatched natural beauty, can be an ideal location for newlyweds and couples to capture some happy memories. 

  • Jakhu Temple


Dedicated to Lord Hanuman, the famous Jakhu temple complex is situated about 8,500 feet on the top of the Jakhu Hills. Apart from the colossal statue of Lord Hanuman, the temple is also famous for providing a mesmerising view of the Shivalik mountain range.

Craignano is a typical Italian villa built in the 18th century by Chevalier Federico Peliteis, a famous Italian photographer. Named after his hometown in Italy- Cargnano, today, it is one of the famous picnic spots near Mashobra. 

The neatly manicured lawns, arcane night lamps, and vintage stone benches can transport you back to colonial-era Italy.
