Sohna Lake in DelhiSohna lies atop Arravallies hills in Haryana, just 60 Km from Delhi. Sohna is slowly picking up as a picturesque health-cum-holiday resort. Sohna got its name from a stream nearby whose sands are said to have littered with Gold. Sohna in Hindi means Gold. This is the last remnant of the Arravallies Northern ridge.

To stay in Sohna is to relive life among picturesque beauty. The place is far from Delhi and thus appropriate to take a break from the madding crowd. Sohna by night is breathtaking. As night falls, you can see distant lights from the Town of Gurgaon. The bulbs in the town below glitter like stars. A solitary vehicle shovels off the darkness once in a while. Every thing is so rural, so natural.

Sohna is famous for its Sulphur spring. The water of the spring has medicinal qualities. The hot Sulphur water is a strong disinfectant for skin disease. The springs are located at the feet of a perpendicular rock, and are capped by a dome. The spa complex with sauna, Sulphur and steam bath facilities for the tourists is situated up on the rock. There is also a mini swimming pool, filled with water spewed from a wall mural. You can stay here for some days but the bookings have to be done in advance.
