For nature lovers and / or adventure seekers, there is nothing to compare with Park Woods. Quaint deluxe cottages and Swiss Tents with all modern facilities in the middle of a pine forest on a ridge. The locale is surrounded by untouched countryside with panoramic views, numerous village treks, jungle walks in pine, oak and rhododendron forests. Also on offer are numerous activities. A perfect juxtaposition of comfort, safety and serenity.

After lunch, laze around in the hammocks or thatched sit-outs just taking in the splendor and beauty of nature all around – verdant forested valleys, emerald rolling meadows, misty mountains. 

As the sun moves towards the horizon walk up to "Fishbowl" at Parkwoods and enjoy hot evening tea and cookies while watching the mesmerizing sunset with the sky a riot of blazing colors.

A quick nap, and you are ready for the bonfire under the star spangled sky.
Barbeque and tandoori snacks are available on order.

After dinner your snug cottages / tents await you for a well deserved sleep.

Day 02:
Today is the day to loosen your limbs and test your physical and mental strength.

Now it is time to enter 'Tarzan's Arena', here our team of trained and certified adventure instructors lead you through interesting activities on the obstacle course like tyre web, tree bridge, burma bridge, commando net, rope walk, cat walk. Surprise yourself with how much more you can actually do than you ever imagined!

Also surprise yourself by noticing how the pure mountain environment and the activities have almost doubled your appetite. 

After lunch, let the instructors make a mountaineer out of you. Reach for the heights! Rock climbing at 'Kohli's Rock'can be interesting and you start appreciating simple things like stairs, escalators and elevators so much more J. Somebody once said, “Climbing may be hard, but it's easier than growing up." Find out for yourself. Follow this with rappelling at 'Arunima's Rock'which brings back your self-esteem to respectable levels! 

In the evening, at the Resort, at 'Tikka Tables' a crackling private bonfire and a delicious barbecue would await youunder the starlit sky. Sitting around, bonhomie spreads as you debate whowas the fearless tiger and who was the scaredy rabbit! Soft songs under the star spangled sky make it a perfect end to the day.

Day 03

Early risers, after morning tea, take a pre-breakfast nature walk amongst the Himalayan flora & fauna in the surrounding pine forest along our marked trails. Here you get to see a lot birdlife –blue tailed magpies, brown fronted woodpeckers, khalij pheasants and many more. The experience is absolutely meditative and invigorating. Binoculars and guides are available at Park Woods on hire. 

After a leisurely breakfast, get your lunch packed and move out in a taxi (arranged by Parkwoods) on a full day sightseeing excursion to explore the surrounding areas.  

Drive 10 kms up toTara Devi Mandir at 7000 feet; a 250 year old temple located on the hilltop of Tarav Parvat commanding splendid views of Shimla and the Himalayan Ranges to the north. 

From here, continue on the offbeat trail to Kufri climbing upto 8600 feet. As you approach the hamlet, do not miss the verdant deodar filled emerald forested slopes on the right. The helipad up from Wildflower Hall commands the best views of the countryside and of course Kufri with its pony rides and mini zoo (though crowded in season) is a must do! Enchanting views of the Himalayan ranges and snow capped peak on clear days. 

After lunch, move towards Shimla, stopping at the erstwhile Viceregal Lodge first. The imposing six-storey edifice, with its manicured gardens is today the Institute for Advanced Studies. There is also a small Peasantry and Bird Park nearby.  

The dose of British History over, move to the Mall Road for everything a typical hill-station offers. Walk upto the most happening place of Shimla –The Ridge, crossing the Scandal Point, the place with a century old gossip of the ruler of the former princely state of Patiala having eloped with the British Commander-in-Chief's daughter from the spot.  

In the evening, back to Park Woods. Retire after an early dinner today.
