Oakwood Hamlet Getaway
(Nivalink Trip Dated - 3 August 2010)
Shoghi (5000+ ft asl) is a wooded area 15 kms before Shimla. There are couple of adventure / nature oriented resorts here that are good for guests who want to do nothing of touristy Shimla and want to be by the nature.
Oarkwood Hamlet is a nature centric getaway in Shoghi. The main attraction at Oakwood Hamlet is the rare opportunity to see wild pheasants in their natural habitat. You can go out in the early hours of the morning, as the improbably calm forest under the gently rising sun, to search for playful pheasants.
Accommodation at Oakwood Hamlet features a mix of four village style (wattle and daub) mud cottages, Four single bedroom bamboo huts, four luxury tents, and striking open Thatch dinning overlooking the valley.
Adventure sports on offer include Rappelling, hiking, simulated river crossing and overnight camping.
Oarkwood Hamlet is an excellent nature centric getaway where guests can enjoy walking, bird watching and a bit of adventure activities besides a relaxed stay.
Typical Stay Duration: 2 - 3 nights.
