About the Experience

Mashobra valley hike is a wholesome experience of a mountain countryside walk, with a
peek into the natural, social and cultural aspects of Himalaya. The meandering trails, under
the shade of Cedar grooves, become a home typical Himalayan flora and provide ample chances to admire the rich Himalayan bird life. A, four hours of moderately graded walk is an excellent way to appreciate the life of Himalaya along with its beautifully carved temples.
This countryside walk, also introduce travelers with wide range of beautiful Himalayan birds.
One of the lasting pleasures of a walk in these woods is the alluring calls from un-sighted birds. Easily traced are the
whistling thrushes, magpies, tits and woodpeckers. Flycatchers pirouette in mid air to claim their catch, while nuthatches and tree creepers comb the fissures in the bark of conifers.
