A Small Video of The Chalets at Naldehra, Himachal Pradesh
I took a small break at Naldehra, quite close to Shimla in Himachal Pradesh. I have to admit I was aware of the Chalets before, I think someone had mentioned about it on my blog itself. But this time I managed to get an invitation from them to spend sometime at their property. And as Sesha had already 15 days off, I went alone.
When I arrived at Naldehra it was 5.00 in the evening. I had started from Kalka Shatabdi in the morning from New Delhi. As usual I had taken an Avomine for my motion sickness in the mountains for the Kalka to Naldehra journey. When I had checked in and looked in the mirror, I was amazed that no one fainted at the site of me, I looked so tired and my hair was a fright! I was too zonked to manage to click a picture of that mine!
But after 2 full days and 2 half ones, I have come back as a different person. Some of the highlights of the trip has been-
The temperature controlled swimming pool– The Chalets, Naldehra has a temperature controlled indoor swimming pool and I took a swim on two days. It has been a year since I had a swim, the last was at the Taj Safari pool at the Banjaar Tola.
The Chalet itself: If you look at the video, you can see what a pretty room I had to myself! It was quite misty all around and yet the views were fabulous. Or maybe because it was misty, the views were fabulous at Naldehra!
The Staff: The staff at the Chalets is very polite and if they see you hesitating about something, they quickly try to set you at ease.
The Golf Course: There is a golf course quite close to the Chalets, and they can arrange for an experience. I am told that the HP government charges a nominal 200 rupees as the charge for using the golf course but I did not give it a try.
The Walks: Take in any direction you wish to take, and it will lead to a scenic walk. It took some convincing on the hotel staff’s part but I took all the walks alone and they were perfectly safe at Naldehra.
The Food: I tried the Indian, continental and the Chinese dishes from the menu and for me continental came on the top but that is because I always like mild flavors. I am sure you can try anything and it would come out good.
A more detailed post will follow as usual at Gonomad. You cxan read more reviews of the Chalets, Naldehra at the Tripadvisor too.
