Garima Vihar

Like all other things in life, looking for the perfect home is all about balance. The perfect balance between the look and feel, the necessities and the wants, the need to get away from the madding crowd and the need to stay connected. More often than not, we sacrifice some of our wishes in search of that elusive golden mean. We want our home to be in a prime location, yet we do not want to endure the hustle-bustle that comes with it almost inevitably. Garima Vihar offers us the best of both worlds.  Located in the heart of all major spots in Noida, Garima Vihar is a housing initiative by KRIBHCO (Krishak Bharati Cooperative Limited). Despite its prime location, the Society offers a relatively tranquil, serene atmosphere. In the evenings, when the kids leave the playgrounds for home, the only sound one hears is the gentle hum of the RO plant in the distance and the therapeutic sound of the wind rustling through the rows of palm trees around the compound. Situated near the KRIBHCO Township and Cityview apartments in Sector 35, Garima Vihar houses an assortment of 128 flats which include 2, 3 and 4 BHK setups.
