A Day in the Bamboo House

A Day in the Bamboo House

I like the soothing climate of Nasik which makes it an ideal place for living. Though the blood vessels of it are believed to be the pilgrimage centers in and around the city, a range of market places and College Road (for me at least) which are also teeming every day. Besides these, once I had opportunity to visit a place called Silver Oak House. It's fairly good place for a day-out with friends and has a perfect blend of agriculture and sightseeing. Initially I was fed up driving to this remote, literally remote, place and after leaving NH 3 I had to ask locals about the route at every next turn. But then I thought about the place with no pollution, complete privacy and several interesting things to do at, this place comes off in almost all criteria.

At Silver Oak House, they offer sort of package tour which includes welcome drink (?), breakfast and typical Maharashtrian meal (which I found hard to digest). They have some pets including an agree monkey named 'Maruti' or something like that, few Ducks, a couple of Peacocks that kept us engaged for a while. A gentleman showed us other parts which houses a tree-house, rain dance floor, a small swimming pool (with no water as it was our sudden visit there) and some wooden houses. He also told us their journey from a coffee-farm to a successful, to them, agro-tourism destination and so all the amenities are built up among the hundreds of silver trees attesting its name - the Silver Oak House.

We then enjoyed rain dance for about an hour where they have 'okay' music arrangements. Few of my friends liked the lunch wherein we had Bhakari, Bangan Bharta and quite a few added items served to us. I liked the dining place more than dine itself but still it was good experience to have lunch at such a tranquil ambiance which I have hardly seen.

As it was a holiday we went on, we saw some families came there for outing. Some children were engaged playing with pets which means it's a good deal to plan a family excursion there or taken as a whole, Silver Oak House is a worth visiting place.
