Stage One of the 12th Hero MTB Himalaya 2016 starts the usual Balkhu road in Mashobra, named after a local sage who was a visionary beyond his time. With his sheer ingenuity , he helped the British India to connect the world heritage Kalka-Shimla rail route as well as many other all season roads that made these parts of the hills accessible in times of heavy snow. This beautiful section begins in the Shimla/Kufri Wildlife Sanctuary which is one of the densest pine forest of the world and will go down to a rivulet at 1500 m before it climbs again to the top of a forest ending at what is probably the most scenic campsite of the race - GadaKuffer.
