Aamod at Shoghi (Shimla)
Aamod at Shoghi is an Ecotourism resort set in pristine virgin forest, on a land provided by Himachal Pradesh Forest Department under its new Ecotourism policy. As you walk towards your cottage, you’ll notice a certain design philosophy. Anything man-made at Aamod perfectly blends in with nature. The cottages are all pre-fabricated structures in-line with the strict norms of Ecotourism so as to retain the original character and ruggedness of the forest cover.

Tucked away on NH 22, is thirteen kilometres short of Shimla. A combination of 11 Deluxe mud-finished cottages, 6 Super-deluxe pine cottages, 2 family cottages and a family-suite, Aamod at Shoghi is a piece of heaven on earth!
