Living life in an overcrowded metro city can sometimes become tedious. It often looks as if everyone is participating in an endless race. And the pace of life in metro cities is continuously getting faster and faster. Living such a life can be nerve-racking; so a place named Park Woods, Shogi situated at a height of 5700 feet and 18 kms before Shimla is calling you to re-energise.
A Park wood, Shogi is an ideal non-hotel resort for fun filled vocation for peace lovers; adventure lovers and children. Walking to this place is just like walking to forest. All one can hear is chirpings of birds; sounds of leaves and nothing else. It is surrounded by tress and an untouched nature. Life becomes like heaven if one can feel rain at this place, aroma of sand, voice of each drop of rain and a cool weather. Unlike metro city; life is at total peace and at halt here. The best of this place is too see sunset from the sunset point. Evening can just spent off watching mountains, pine trees; different flowers and clouds. View from every angle is different and extremely beautiful. Lodgings are comfortable in bamboo huts or cottage tents; all balanced with thick wooden sticks. Lawns and gardens add more to its beauty. I was touched with its beauty and also pleased to see that parking was 800 ms away from this place, so pollution cannot even enter in this place.
This place also promise to give you the variety of recreational activities like rope walking, trekking, climbing spider web, born fire, star gazing, monkey tapping and nature walk through mountains. My friend and I lost the way on trekking as we went on trekking without the trainer. As we lost the way, instead of completing trekking we went to some unseen, unheard villages down near by. We tried to come back the same way we started trekking; but unfortunately we end up at main road and had to double walk. Trekking which was supposed to be over in 1 hour we returned back to our Swiss cottage, trekking still uncompleted, in more than 3 hours. So if you visit this place make sure you have the trainer available with you. Trainer is always available for all the recreational activities.
My experience of visiting this place was mentally relaxing, adventures and very calm. This place is must to visit for everyone. I would love to visit this again in my life. It’s a complete fun filled forest retreat.
