Best gateway from the hustling and crowded Bangalore. Gorukana is located almost 175km (4 hour) drive from Bangalore which makes it ideal for a weekend trip. We had booked the cottages and enjoyed the scenery from the balcony. Neat rooms, clean bathroom. The food provided by them was good and tasty. Would recommend to others too.

Firstly , one must be aware that the resort is run by a very respected NGO called VGKK. They run it as a means of employing local Soliga tribals and generating funds to run schools , hospitals etc for the tribals of BR Hills. As such, contributing to causes like these reduce pressure on the environment, as Tribals get educated... More

It was not exactly in the midst of the forest, but had a feel of it. surrounding areas were moderately populated. A good place for a weekend gateway for Bangaloreans, awesome location, hospitable staff. Nice and big duplex rooms, ideal for a family/group of 4. They have some good activities included in the tariff, a tribal dance, bonfire, a guided... More

We three friends decided to meet after 23 Years. We wanted a place which could be away from the hustle bustle of the city and should be not very far from Bangalore. Dhruv found out about Gorukana from his friends. We stated last Saturday morning without much expectation. But when we reached there, we found , an amazing place .... More

This is a really amazing place. A special mention to staff and food. We were close to 50 people, yet everything was perfect and on time. It would be even better if they have more adventure sports. .........

Experience is often confused with amenities & many superfluous five star resort elements. Gorukana has almost all of it but it has something more: a soul. First of all the place is located on the scenic fringe of the BR Hills forest reserve. It is run largely by local Soligas whose upliftment into modernity is a story that needs to... More

Gorukana a beautiful property with rustic looks & serene settings. It needs better maintenance/upkeep and more sensitive management. If you really want to enjoy your stay here, avoid booking a cottage through travel partners: especially BEWARE OF MAKE MY TRIP, as they have lack of understanding among each other and can cancel your booking at the last moment due to...

B.R. Hills in itself is exquisitely exotic and virgin. If you're a forest lover and want to avoid crowds of tourists thronging every corner, this is your kind of get-away. And Gorukana is a beautiful resort in a setting so serene as this... no frills, just clean and quaintly unassuming, it is nesled in the middle of the forest in... More
