FEAST AT AAMOD DALHOUSIE
To bring back the attention on the favourite national past time, we at Aamod are Foodies. You will be pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety on offer in our Multi-cuisine restaurant – “The Colonial”. At Aamod, guests delight in the delicious flavours of Oriental, Continental & Indian cuisine – not to mention our local Himachali Specials and the festive meal – Dhaam, served in true traditional style.
And since we revel in being different, we would love you to go beyond the restaurant and test out our motto - “You find the place and we will set up a table”, be it our panoramic restaurant sit-out, magical meals in the forest, romantic candle light dinner under the stars or a special banquet in the lawns - just let us know.
Each morning, wake-up to go out on nature walks filled with adventures, and return to the resort for a hearty breakfast (or have it with your walk – packed or set-up like a picnic). Enjoy freshly squeezed fruit and/or vegetable juice. Enjoy traditional hot Indian breakfast options, muesli and assorted cereals, fresh fruits and cheeses, cold cuts or try our Pan Cakes and Waffles.
An exhaustive menu (available on our website) for your lunch or dinner gives you the option of living it up or going light with a range of soups and salads. And if what tickles your fancy is not on the menu, tell our chef what you would like – rest assured, we will move mountains to try and deliver.
EXPLORE AT AAMOD DALHOUSIE

A trip to Khajjiar (popularly known as the mini Switzerland of India), Kalatop sanctuary (by road or on foot), and Dainkund (walking along lush green meadows with stunning views of the Mani Mahesh and other peaks) are a must-do, even for a short trip. Add in Saach Pass and Jot if you have an extra day. For the more adventurous, 3-4 day treks can be organised to Mani Mahesh and Jot and other popular walking destinations. Camp out for a night – our activity team can set it up for you or you/your children can do it yourself under their guidance – all ready for a bit of jungle survival, with your own bonfire etc.
If you want to just put up your feet and take it easy, the library is well stocked with a wide range of books and movies. A Pool Table, Foosball Table, Table Tennis, a wide range or board games, carom, darts etc. will ensure that there is something for all ages and tastes.
