A nice and calm place to be, away from all the noise. The resort is perfectly located with an awesome view of the valley. The morning sun rays will fall directly into the room giving it a mesmerizing look. You can go trekking to a nearby small river. The staff is also very friendly and co-operating. A must go place,...
