Reviews

Woodscation is actually a life away from life ..located at a secluded place away from any civilization. A 2 km of easy trek trail will lead to this paradise. Baljeet the owner is a great host and will look after every small request. You can simply gaze at snow capped mountains for hours and do nothing or you can follow a small trail and trek to the sun set point or go for a village walk nearby. I am already planning to visit them soon – Jatin
