Siliserh – A hidden getaway

I wanted to write this blog ever since I visited Alwar with my friends a few years back. I had then visited the Sariska bird sanctuary and tiger reserve and chanced upon a little known lake in a place called Siliserh. It was then that I decided to come back planned.

Sometimes, what you are looking for is right next to you and you don’t take notice. This place is a classic weekend getaway only if you have the valuable information to meticulously plan your trip and experience the fun around.

The roads are nice and wide. It is a fun drive for family and friends to quietly relax away from their routine lives for a day or two. What makes this a good excursion is the proximity to the city (170KM from Delhi/3 hours drive)
It is very important to pick a nice property for your stay to pamper yourself in the pool, enjoy delicious meals and do sightseeing as per your own convenience.
