If you are looking for the perfect destination for a weekend getaway, this is it! Aamod at Shoghi, Shimla is an eco-friendly resort located on a gentle hill slope under the roof of thick pine trees. The best part — this is a pet-friendly resort, so your pooch can finally be a part of your vacation!

Your happy place
Imagine, the big green meadows, trees and brooks, rustic pastoral scene, rain swept sidewalks with the wind in your hair! Yes, welcome to the paradise. Perfect for couples and families, likewise, given their activities, cottages and spa.
Living the Aamod Experience
This is the closer view of the cottage where I stayed with my husband. The room was warm and friendly equipped with all the basic amenities that one requires. It felt as if we were staying in a secluded romantic cottage far away from home while the rain poured at the window panes.
Food for eyes and soul!
Doesn’t this place feel like an Italian roadside open cafe? That is what I felt. It represents the perfect blend of a man made space and nature. The food simply outweighed our expectations. I tried to cover at least one dish from multiple cuisines ranging from Chinese, Continental, North Indian and their own special delicacies which include ‘Pahadi Food’ and obviously, drinks to go along.
#GedhiTip — If you love Italian food like I do, do order the Lasagne.
Much to do — Adventures Galore!
This place definitely has more to it. For adventure seekers and fun lovers, some great activities are a crucial part of this resort that includes:
- Commando Net
- Zip Line
- The Net Walk
- Tyre Swing
- Cycling in the dense forest
- Trekking which covers big mountains till Shimla hills.

Our Recommendation: I personally tried zip lining and the tyre swing in between the massive trees of this lovely forest. It was one thrilling and adrenaline pumping experience. Don’t give these activities a miss.
