Nature In It's Purest Form

HolidayIQ Traveller Shweta Tanwar shares, “We travelled to Shoghi from Delhi. After reaching Shogi, we all were amazed to see nature at its purest form. The sunrise, the glimpse of the Himalayas, dense forests and the sound of the chirpping birds is something that Delhi lacks. There are no fancy resturants here. Just home made special 'pahadhi khana' rich in taste made by the guest house people is all that you can find. Shoghi is a delight for all photographers to capture nature at its best.”

It is about 10km before Shimla

It was not bad experience overall was OK . But this is not a resort it is just a hotel 10 km before Shimla . Hospitality was OK as per booking and of course we were there at the peak time so hotel was quite busy . Transport from the hotel need to be revisited as there is nothing nearby if you don't have own vehicle.

Sunrise villa, Shoghi

It is before shimla, a bit off the way when you are heading to Shimla.
But the place is beautiful, quite and serene. You will love it once you get there.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The place is away from the main city so you will have to travel to Shimla for other things. Sightseeing can be enjoyed from your rooms or from the lawns where you can put your chairs, relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the valley.

Activities & things to do: Nothing such around the hotel for activities. You can explore the locales, relax.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Make your booking well in advance if you are going in the holiday season. The hotel is well worth its price and so can get full very easily. See the map for the location and you can always call the owner in case you need directions.
