Moksha Himalaya Spa Resort has an interesting background that gives it the privilege of an unrivalled location and customer facility. Ramesh Kumar Garg, who worked as a lumbering contractor for the government of Himachal Pradesh, had bought the hill forest land in 1968 with a dream to set up a small hotel. While on a trip to the Middle East in the late 70s to sell timber, he backpacked across Europe looking for some inspirational ideas. Cable cars of Switzerland fascinated him. In December 1982, he set up a 10-room resort in the region and named it Timber Trail. In April 1988, he refurbished it as Timber Trail Heights, a 45-room hill resort in the lap of nature connected with Parwanoo town through cable cars.
Looking at the growing demand in beauty and wellness services, in 2004, Garg began work on Moksha Himalaya Spa. At 5,200 ft amidst salubrious, picturesque, verdant hills besides river Kaushalya, Moksha Himalaya Spa Resort exudes passion for perfection that makes it a unique destination for nature lovers seeking a holistic wellness experience. A 45-minute drive from Chandigarh on the Kalka-Simla Highway in district Parwanoo, the resort is highly approachable, yet once there it affords its guests natural serenity and calm away from the city din.
