    Palace Hotel.. they charge you :r:100 as entry fee which can be adjusted against the food bill at the restaurant but the services are poor. We had an argument with the manager as they have no food to serve us and said it will take them an hour to serve anything. the manager refused to refund the amount at first, then we asked for his card and told him that we are going to complain about this to Rajasthan Tourism department then only he refunded our amount

    Thanks KnightRider



    Thanks thedrsunil..

    yes Lake Siliserh is a family outing type of place. You can go boating in the lake. Also lots of local tourist flock this place. Palace Hotel is a heritage property and services for the guest staying at the hotel is good but rooms are on a costly side. Don't know about the quality of food for obvious reasons. I would recommend slighter cooler climate to visit this place. Nearby waterfall and temple is also mostly popular with the locals only as a picnic spot kind of place. Fishing in the lake is not allowed as the tenders are issued to some contractor, he can only catch fish there. Though we saw a bunch of locals trying their indigenous ways to catch fish and had caught 5-7 of them.

    thanks hiambuj..



    we were getting bored, so tried this place, though i personally don't like to travel in flat areas, but somehow found a vertical challenge.. the mountains were absolutely vertical, these are training grounds for security forces also as the area was under control of security forces


    yes nice place around delhi for a day travel..
