Good viewing

Very good experience, but cost is very high for ropewaw 1250 per person for 2 hours stay if you don't have room booking at top. Kids over 4 years also gets charged 1000 best time to visit in rain. Summer it's very hot. Staff mostly older people and well mannered. In restaurants only attractive is swimming pool on other games for kids or alders

Not worth so much money

I visited the place with 6 of my family members and I found it's more than deliverable ask price. The price of 750 per person is too much and it doesn't include anything else. I visited once Cape Town table mountain cable car and I remember I spent almost 450 a person and experience was far better and overwhelming.

A clean property

I Visited Timber Trail Height in April 2016. It was a clean property have good hospitality. All category rooms are with sightseeing view and all the hotel staff was awesome facilitators. Those who have the good budget may also explore Moksha, it has the additional facility of spa and swimming pool.

It's good but a bit over priced

Ropeway journey to reach the resort area is good but I found it bit over price. It costs around 750 per person. The scenes from the top are good but it is not something mind blowing to spend this much. I will not suggest this place for a group of friends to hangout. For couples it's a good place to relax.

Nice cable car ride but very expensive

We were in Chandigarh, so decided to go for Timber Trail at Parwanoo, on Shimla road.The tickets for the return ride were at Rs 770 per person- very expensive indeed. However, since we had travelled all the way, we thought that may be the views from the top of the opposite peak will be worth the money we spent.The cable cars were well painted and with good seats and also clear glass panes. As the car climbed up, the scenes were very nice with hills and a deep valley below.On reaching the top, we were told that almost the entire hill top was out of bounds for visitors as it is the property of a residential hotel. We were shown a trail that led to a kiosk on a small platform. One could sit there and relax or have tea/coffee/ Sandwitches enjoying cool breeze. Tall trees almost block 80% of the view and then one realises he has been taken for a very costly ride.I personally will not recommend this place to any visitor.
