15.99km from Palania Bus StopAs you head to the mountains fleeing away from Delhi's scorching summer heat, polluted air and mindless traffic, the last thing you want to do is get stuck in a traffic jam at Shimla and being engulfed in Diesel fumes of Tourist Taxis (read Shimla.) Come to Park Woods and your troubles seem to vanish away as you walk down the pathway into the valley resort. As you step into this countryside, picturesque, green abode, it only takes you a while to realise that all the travel was worth. No wonder we came here for the second time in last four years and regretted going somewhere else hoping to find something similar. This time in fact we came back with a bigger group, all in all 14 people including, kids, elderlys and 35+ Please read other reviews incase you are interested to know the facilities and its upkeep.. there are plenty of them,, this review is about why we went there again.. Throughout our stay, we never felt the need to go to Shimla Mall Road (though we did just because for the proximity of it and some souvenir to carry back home...Read...Kids need that). The serenity of the resort will itself hold you back from leaving it, plus you get good food and Chai with snacks at your cabin doors without fail. We took our guitars, sang our heart out (cant say how we sounded though), had fantastic evenings .... and the dinners that just were lazier than our breakfasts...the food the staff never disappoint you.. Kids got closer to the nature...found numerous activities to keep themselves busy...mountain trails, cards, chess, ludo, other board games, table tennis, badminton, binoculars, pottery making, Rope Valley crossing, Mountain Rappelling, Trail walks...more than you can handle... Evenings were the best times for us as a group, cool winds, chirping of birds and God knows what all bugs..but all in all melodious... setting sun and evening lights, music..something thats beyond a brochure. Come here if you dont plan to visit 25 tourist point (as the Tourist Taxi guy will tell you ) in Shimla and just want to Relax...be Pampered, Rejuvenate and a Very Comfortable Stay.
