Tethy's Resort in the middle of dense forest around Narkanda Town in Shimla region of Himachal Pradesh, INDIA
It was the time, when we were on 10 days expedition in upper ranges of Himachal Pradesh. We were going through villages without touching main highways and on the way we come across this wonderful place to have some snacks and move ahead. After a long time, we though of sharing some of the Photographs we shot at Tethy's Resort.
These photographs are approximately one year old, when some renovation work was under progress. This Resort has a huge building with decent facilities and few huts on the right. We couldn't check huts, so no comments about those. But they looked interesting from outside...
We were at Tethy's for some tea and snacks... Some of the journalists were accompanying us who were quite familiar with the place... While the snacks were being prepared, we had a round of the resort and had a look at some of the rooms/facilities at Tethy's Resort... Above photograph shows the reception area with wonderful seating arrangements and a snooker table...
Somehow, it's amazing to see very creative/artistic taste of Furniture in many of the Hilly Reosrts/Hotels. I can understand that, hilly states are rich in terms of timber n all but still some creative minds are always required to make best use of it. Interiors of reception were really catchy as compare to all other places in the campus.
This view wowed us, when we looked outside from one of the room-windows at Tethy's Reosrt. All rooms facing valleys have wonderful view. Resort has huge glass-windows which face this beautiful valley and in the bottom of the valley, some Apple Orchards can be seen. Most of the hills around this place has apple orchards. Although this resort in in middle of a forest but quite near to main highway and well connected.
Resort has some huge rooms/suites... It seems the place is quite popular among bikers and bollywood folks. There is a high peak near this resort which is wonderful place for bollywood folks to shoot and adventurous route for Bikers/Hikers. It's Hatu Peak, that attracts many folks to this part of hilly ranges.
At around 10k feets among the dense woodlands of mixed tropical forests, this place has wonderful aerial view. Tethy's is surrounded by the villages, apple orchards and dense forest cover.... and the place Narkanda is endowed with pristine beauty. Fresh air rejuvenates you and calm surroundings tranquilizes the soul of every visitor to this region.
Here is one of the windows with wonderful view to the valley from one of the suites at Tethy's Resort.
According to the mythological and Geological concept Himalayas emerged from the vast ocean called Tethys and is youngest of all mountains. It seems resort is named on that fact only.
Tethys Retreat Narkanda, a decent retreat on the western end commands a splendid view of the Hatu peaks in the front with the interlocking spurs decked with rich forest cover.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVEN't STAYED at TETHY's, so can't comment on service and more details review.
