The place has five beautiful cottages that offer a stunning view from each balcony. The resort also has two morungs (traditional huts) of Zeliang and Kuki tribe that comes with a personal cooking space of your own. Don’t you think that already sounds awesome? Do not forget to check out the long stretch of land decorated with pebbles, seasonal and wild flowers, sheds, ponds, swings, and see-saws.

For fishing enthusiasts, the resort also offers angling gear. Also, do not forget to explore the surrounding trekking trails and off road tracks that are open to the public. These trails are  however open only seasonally i.e. from March to May and in the months of October and November. The trails may get unsafe during heavy rainfall.

“I love coming to Shalom with friends and families, as we have our family forest here. One of the things we look forward to in every visit is to sit atop the wizard towers; the view from there is beautiful – especially in the evenings. 

The morungs are a great stay option for people coming from outside. I recommend that they stay overnight to experience the local way of life in a natural setting. The best part is, we now have another option close to home, besides Kaziranga for a weekend outing.” Shared by @lolo_ndang

End the day by taking a well needed rest inside the traditional morungs. Absolute bliss!

Other interesting projects coming up include a mini golf space and a futsal arena. So whether you’re a denizen or a traveller, a visit to Shalom resort promises to rejuvenate your appetite for both, adventure and leisure. Just make sure you don’t plan your stay on a rainy day as the muddy roads uphill to the property can play a menace.
