Aamod offers unique holidaying options to suit every preference.

Aamod at Dalhousie is perhaps one of the best summer escapades in North India. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, the place redefines eco-tourism by taking it to new heights of luxury. I enjoyed host of adventure sports. The best part is we can choose our own dining spot anywhere in the resort and it is customised accordingly. The hospitality and service is also very noteworthy. The serene beauty and the freshness of the cool summer breeze definitely got me hypnotised and i cannot wait to re-visit the place again.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Lot of small places to look around

Activities & things to do: The adventure sports is a things must do

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Best season to travel is February to April
