We stayed in Banjara retreat, Shoja in the month of june for 2 nights.The retreat is situated 5 km. before Jalori pass on a very narrow and steep slope.One has to walk down quite a bit from the road to reach the retreat. The building is mde in a traditional Kullu architecture which blends well with the surroundings. On a clear day you get to see the snow clad Dhauladhar ranges from the retreat or else you see the steep forest covered slopes and the valley.It's altitude is above 8,800 feet so it gets pretty cold here even in summers. The rooms are spacious and compfy and with clean linen and loo.The rooms are rented on A.P plan which includes all meals. The food is homely and served in the dining area(No room service).There is no power backup. The place has plenty of indoor games and books to keep you busy. There is a bonfire every night in the garden which is an excellent spot to soak in the sunlight during daytime. The staff is courteous and quick and has a good knowledge of the flora,fauna and treks.
