Sondela - In the middle of nowhere

Our group visited Sondela in Kamshet, we had never visit Kamshet before this trip, but I must say this trip will remain in our memory lanes for a long long time. Sondela provides a mesmerizing view to the love lake and mountains in Kamshet, the Bungalow is not surrounded with any other properties and makes you feel in the middle of nowhere & taking you away from the hustle of City life, being on the top of a small hill gives you that very amazing view. The caretakers of Sondela took us trekking into the hills, showed us a small waterfall to play around, it felt like a personalized waterfall created just for us :) took us to the lake and dam, A must visit place.
