Dwarika Residency
Shimla, Himachal Pardesh.
Driving to shelapani, you will be experincing the up and down mountain roads with river side effect and beautiful bungalow .

You will walk and ride through the middle of the Pine forest from one great dune to another and see the Himalayan mountain covered with snow and pabber kund named Chanchal. You'll pass Deodars and Oaks, see the cold springs, and enjoy the apple orchard.

Shelapani is a small area , but has a tremendous amount to offer. It would be impossible to experience it all in one trip. You need to decide exactly what you want to get out of the holiday and then be ruthless about the itinerary (our major interest was in walking and nature watching for which shelapani is justly famous), it is a rain forest after all. A trip in the dry season (March to october ) would minimise this risk.

It is important to confirm Booking which get overbooked in apple season.
