Wildflower Hall: An Oberoi Resort in the Himalayas

Mashobra, Chharabra
Shimla , Himachal Pradesh , India http://www.oberoihotels.com/oberoi_wildflowerhall/index.asp

The foothills of the Himalayas—blanketed in fragrant cedar forests, and with views of looming, snow-dusted peaks—provide the singular setting for this pristine, 8,250-foot-high retreat. The resort’s common areas and 85 guest rooms, warmly tricked out with teak floors, hand-knotted rugs, and often crackling log fires, have a colonial-era stateliness—and no wonder: they occupy the former summer home of Lord Kitchener, who was the British Army’s Commander in Chief in the early 1900s. Quite possibly the amusements here today (horseback rides through apple orchards, walks on forest trails, mountainside picnics) are the same ones he enjoyed back then.
