Hello, it was a good experience all together, very good for Bird Photography. The staff is excellent. However, the paid lunch was Rs.287/- per person which is very very expensive considering the simple basic food quality. Thanks !

This camp has nurtured a studio setting where several species of bush-birds come frequently for water/bath and visitors can sit in comfort to watch them in natural environment. Excellent food and comfortable stay keeps you well. Take a trek around the hills to enjoy nice scenic views. Also provides river-rafting session on request at extra charges. A good relaxed place...
