ACTIVITIES AT WOODVILLE PALACE AND IN AND AROUND SHIMLA

Woodville offers a number of activities for its guests. The palace hotel has the facilities for Billiards, Table Tennis and Badminton for sports lovers. Woodville also has an extensive library for the avid reader to peruse at leisure.

For those close to nature, Woodville is the ultimate holiday destination. We have our own private deodar and pine forests, which are home to rare species of flora and fauna. Walk into these forests and you will find the air filled with the musical sound of rare birds serenading nature. The sprawling rose-scented lawns and gardens remain unrivalled in Shimla in their beauty and the relaxation they offer.

The walk from Woodville towards the Raj Bhawan is a real treat for nature lovers. On the way, you can see lush green forest blazing with Rhododendrons. The juice of rhododendrons, easily available in Shimla, is divine and otherwise very rare.

SHIMLA ALSO OFFERS A NUMBER OF OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES THAT CAN BE EASILY ACCESSED FROM WOODVILLE PALACE.

Woodville Palace is located in the lap of the Himalayas and has a mind boggling variety of flora and fauna. Guests can savor the heady pine and rose-scented air, the musical symphony of the various birds serenading nature, leaving them with a truly enchanting experience at Woodville Palace.

It is barely half a mile from the "Heart of Shimla" or the Shimla Mall. Woodville Palace is located midway between the Chief Minister's official residence and the Governor's House. It is surrounded by the natural scenic scape of towering pine and deodar forests. Woodville Palace is a heady mix of turn-of-the-century old world charm and a modern sensibility that caters to the needs of the present day traveller.

TREKKING

Shimla to Kullu over the Jalori Pass (3300mt above sea level) and the Bashleo Pass (3250m above sea level) and from Sarahan to Sangla are some popular treks conducted by local guides and mountaineering institutes.
