We arrived the resort around 11 am but the rooms were available at 2 PM and we do not wanted to waste our time so have kept our luggage and went for sightseeing. The lake was around 2 km from the resort. It was a picturesque view with greenery everywhere enough to take our tiredness away. Back to the resort for relaxing. The heritage room had a good view of the hills and has a large open space in the children's park. Thanks to Thrillophilia for great deals with discounted offers with hassle free check-in and check out.
