It's really a nice place to spend your vacations, i visited there in September 2016 weather is so cool that no need of switching on the fan or a/c. It was our 3 nights and 4 days family trip in Marigold Sarovar Portico Hotel, Mashobra we really enjoyed a lot. It's approx 8-10 hours journey from Murthal if you drive... More

Craignano is a wonderful retreat to the way the Simla Hills used to be. The walk is beautiful and very easy on the fet. It is a pleasant winding road through pine forests. There is a temple before Craignano and the Agricultural research institute offers a good way to pass the morning. If come below Craignano on the road to... More

It's popular for apple orchards. The place was quite small but very beautiful. Apple trees were all covered with iron grills so couldn't take much pictures. But the views of valley from this place was breath taking.though please note that the roads to teach here are very narrow n steep

Well kept beautiful place, not very far from the resort. It is basically a research centre for apple farming. In addition to apple trees they have a small garden. The locatiion on top of a hill is added attraction.

The place has deteriorated, there are better places to travel to, for a drive, for example, the Fagu-Narkanda route

It is a research centre, with a lot of flowers on display and a small apple orchard. The views of the nearby hills are nice. There is a good canteen, which serves fresh apple juice and a few snacks

I visited there during my recent trip to Mashobra. You don't have places to eat or drink there, however this is a place where you may relax a bit, and it's kind of on top of Mashobra (top height). Still nothing much is there, I didn't find anything fascinating, and on top of it, drive to this place was troublesome.... More
