About Mashobra in Shimla
Mashobra is a resort town located 12 kilometres from Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh. Mashobra has a mean elevation of 2,146 metres. The town is an idyllic alternative for those planning a honeymoon in Shimla and also looking for a peaceful getaway.
Perched on a hilltop in Mashobra, the Retreat Building is the official retreat residence of the President of India. This beautiful wooden structure covering an area of 10,628 square feet is one of the best places to visit in Mashobra. Since its location is a little higher than the Shimla ridgetop, the building allows spectacular views of Shimla and nearby resort towns.
If you are visiting Shimla on your next vacation, check out the Reserve Forest Sanctuary near Mashobra is one of India's largest watersheds.

Pine, oak, cedar, rhododendron, and maple trees are aplenty around this lovely sanctuary. Nature lovers can spot animals such as monkeys, Langurs, barking deer, and jackals.
