We had a great stay at Old Magazine House. The place is serene. Even though it was the rainy season, we got to see and hear many bird species. The hiking trip was fantastic and the view from the top was awesome! It was such a refreshing feeling looking down on the Supa reservoir and surroundings from the summit. We... More

The road leading from the main road to the resort was not paved and may be a challenge for a car. We stayed at the cottage which was closest to the restaurant. The cottage was basic, clean and decent. It had a western style commode and provision for hot and cold water were also present. The room however seemed a... More

We got lot of new species this time including Crested Goshawk, Trogon, Racket-tailed Drongo, Bronze Drongo, Scimitar Babbler, etc. It was nice to... More

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 !
