Coolest place around Mashobra

On the day of our visit to Kutri, we observed that, as snow had begun to melt, the muddy pathway to the top had become slushy. We had no option but to hire mules to take us to the top. On the way, we hired gum boots to prepare ourselves to walk in the muddy pathway.Icy winds were blowing and we found that the warm clothes worn by us were just not sufficient and we had to top them up by purchasing additional warm clothes on reaching the top. The mule service was available up to a point and beyond that, we had to walk it up. To start with, some of us got ourselves photographed by sitting on the yaks, and holding the cute rabbits available on rent. Then the eateries started and most vendors were selling boiled chana Masala, alu tikki, burger, tea and coffee. There were shops selling local warm clothes such as blankets, jackets, gloves and caps. We took pictures of the snow clad mahasu peak and the paradise point. The apple garden point had no apples left in the garden. Thereafter we returned through the same route on mule backs.It was the chilliest ever experience.

Awesome place to visit

Located at 2700 m on the Hindustan Tibet Road beyond Shimla. A good 500 m higher than Shimla and just 4 km away from it. Nature at it's best. Snowed out for at least 4 months a year. The best places to visit are the HPTDC Chini banglow and the zoo adjoining it on the road to Chail. Tourists are harassed by the ponywallas. There has to be a check on them.Overall it is s must visit place. Those visiting Simla must take our 3-4 hours and visit this in all seasons. During new year eve stay here.... A must for all to enjoy snow and solace.

Good place but beware of agents

Kufri is a good place but only way to travel is by foot or horse. The agents below only misguided us by card rate. There is no such place in actual, they only try to fool us by guiding the sights from distance as they mentioned it in card. But customers don't realise it so its my request to only see card carefully before you choose your trip.

Not a place for everyone !

We went there in our car and had a 6 hr journey. When we reached first thing we tried was to find a hotel but the hotels rooms there are just so dirty and they charge you a lot of money. Also if you enjoy going to high altitudes and visiting an amusement park through a rented car or on a horse (or a pony) then you should surely be going there.

Very nice view and good to play with snow

Very nice view at Kufri, awesome weather there. I went there with my friends and I enjoyed there a lot with them. We had so much fun during Horse ride. The best part I love there was playing with snow, I made one snowman with snow along with my friends. Whenever I view that photo I get flashback with all that memories of time which I spent there. If I get a chance to go there I will definitely visit there again.

Small station famous for ice skating and snow games

Kufri is a good destination to visit. It's next to Shimla. It is famous for ice skating and snow games. Kufri is a small station covered with thick forests. You can enjoy Yak ride in Kufri and can shoot some pics in Traditional Himachali dresses. You will love to be there.

Snow and adventurous activities

Kufri is a very good place visit when you go to Shimla, it is at the highest point of the Shimla. The best season to visit is December to mid of the March because during the these days you can enjoy snow. Everyone goes here to enjoy snow activities & adventure activities otherwise nothing to see in other season, it's only waste of money in amusement park.

Play in the snow but not after the sunset

The place Kufri known for its snow all over the year is a must place to go you should visit it as whenever you will visit Shimla. Paragliding is also available there, it is fun to go out with friends. Play in snow for hours but don't be late as it gets a cold after sunset but yes a nice holiday point to visit near Shimla.
