Don't go there if you are looking for a typical resort with all fancy stuff and satellite tv. Having said that, and having been here in April 2014 (yup this is coming nearly 2 years late) I will go there again. Carry your book if you like reading. Go there for fresh air, away from chaos, spending time with family... More

The rooms made like individual cottages are made of mud and stone, with intimate warm light and wooden bathrooms. The staff was very accommodating and everything that they served in food was delightful. The owner's kids Vanya & Aru helped me in picking fresh... More

Beautiful and serene atmosphere, well taken care of, homely food amidst jungles and chirping of birds. Will like to visit again . Though rains were beautiful there but approach is little tricky n difficult during rainy season. Trees full of pears, Magpie n other birds.

Beautifully set up in the midst of the forest , Ashish and his... More

a dramatic view of the sunset has caught everyone's attention. suddenly, a himalayan magpie zips past and as if in slow motion, descends on to a branch of the nearby tree. and you wonder - what to see and what to miss out on! there's drama everywhere out here.
