THE WILDFLOWER HALL MASHOBRA

As the highest mountain range in the world, the grandeur, mystery and romance of the Himalayas cannot be surpassed. "In a hundred ages of the gods, I could not tell you the wonders of the Himalaya," notes an ancient Vedic text. Indeed, the Himalayas have held a special place in India's spiritual consciousness since ancient times.

Bordered by Tibet and Kashmir in the north and Punjab in the south, the mountainous state of Himachal Pradesh lies in the Western Himalayas, which extend across 500 km and comprise 16 ridges, broken by the river Sutlej. The region incorporates some of the greatest mountaineering terrain in the world, including the high altitude area of the Cold Desert and the valleys of Spiti and Lahaul, with their stark, elemental beauty.

Set in the midst of these imposing ranges, at a height of 2500 meters (8250 feet) above sea level, Mashobra is situated on a traverse spur, well known as Asia's largest watershed with the water basins of the Indus on one side and the Ganges on the other. The historic Hindustan-Tibet road initiated by Lord Dalhousie in 1850 links Mashobra and Shimla. Cut into the side of precipices that descend into deep ravines and hillsides densely covered with deodar forests, the road passes through colorful roadside bazaars and the Sanjauli tunnel. The road was finally completed at the turn-of-the-century in Lord Kitchener's time. Mashobra’s bustling local bazaar provides the locals with day-to-day essentials, while its fertile, terraced fields grow fruit, vegetables and flowers to supply Shimla and the surrounding area with the freshest of produce.

Mashobra has a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. In the summer months of April to June, wild flowers fill the meadows, and the air is cool, fresh and pine-scented. The rainy season from July to August has an appeal of its own with misty mountains and glorious sunsets.

September to November is pleasant and bracing, while winter is crisp and invigorating with snow and bright, sunny weather. The Mashobra spur is dotted with orchards of fruit trees, and turn-of-the-century houses with evocative names like Fairlawn, Wildflower Hall and Apple Tree House. Its numerous shady glades, cool streams and flowery glens make it idyllic country for camping and picnics, as well as treks and river rafting.

Wildflower Hall in its time has been a country escape for various Viceroys and high-ranking officials. For many years it was the property of G H M Batten, private secretary to Earl Lytton (1876-1880). It was also a favorite retreat of Lord Ripon. Wildflower Hall's most illustrious resident, however, was Lord Kitchener, "the greatest Commander-in-Chief that India has ever possessed". Years after Lord Kitchener left India the house continued to be identified with the Great War Lord, as he was locally known, and it still holds strong associations as his former home.

A handsome six-storey structure, Wildflower Hall has remained true to the spirit of the original bungalow in its external aspect. Borrowing from the traditional method of local construction using lath and plaster, the exterior of the lower floors is clad in slate, while the upper floors are relieved by a tracery of balconies and railings. A pitched roof, typical of houses of the period, surmounts the building. Rebuilt to the most exacting international standards, Wildflower Hall successfully blends the charm and beauty of the local area with modern-day comforts.
