The Gibbon Resort is the best homestay option for those visiting the Hoolongpar Gibbon Reserve. (I doubt if there is any other). Mr. Gogoi runs a very warm, clean and cosy place with excellent homestyle food. He arranges for the safari too (with an energetic, but slightly expensive guide). Do spend an evening with Mr. Gogoi to know all about the wildlife of Upper Assam and Arunachal. He has displayed a lot of local handicrafts and books which you may buy. You will need your own vehicle or taxi, as the Sanctuary is about 4-5 kms away, and public transport is out of the question.

The people here were lovely, they looked after us and the food was excellent. The room we had was good and comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. This was just what we needed as we'd had a long day before we got there

Had a tremendous experience at Gibbon Resort. Hollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary was in our wish list for long. Seven primates in a forest. How can we resist such temptation! But the challenge was where to stay? The options were mostly in Jorhat, which is more than 30 min away. And in a city, you would not feel the presence of nature around. Then a friend discovered Gibbon Resort. And off we went. We received a warm welcome by the owner Diganta Gogoi. We checked into clean rooms, with basic but all essential amenities. There was a lawn to sit and chat. And the common drawing room has a good stock of books and journals on wildlife. Next 24 hours were full of pleasant experience. To start with, we tasted local tea with various herbs from his own garden. Our meals were again prepared from local produce and his own garden harvests. We had chanda and kuri fish, dhenki shaak (fern shoots), mocha (banana flower) fry, and black rice pudding - to name a few. All items were delicious, with spice and oil in moderation. Cook Deepak Das definitely deserve lot of accolades. Diganta gave us a tour through his own tea garden in the village. He also took us through the village, which was a great experience again. Then the most important part - our trek. An excellent wild life photographer himself, and with vast and deep knowledge on the local flora and fauna in this locality, he accompanied us. And what a trek it was. Right at the beat office, we saw a pig tailed macaque, and gibbon family. Then we spotted lot of birds including scarlet minivets, oriental pied hornbills, and green billed malkoha. Near the railway track we saw a family of capped langur. Yet we were longing for the stumped tailed macaque, which is usually difficult to spot. At the backdrop of hoolock songs, came a call to Diganta's phone. He quietly announced that the stumped-tailed macaques were seen. So we took a trail and saw a moderately large fearless family feasting on leaves. Uh! Four endemic primates covered. Cannot ask for more. Goes without saying, we shall go back to Gibbon Resort. Where else would we have such great hospitality served with rich wildlife experience!

This is not a hotel but a homestay where you are made to feel very welcome and part of the family. Diganta, the owner, is a truly wonderful man who organises your whole time with him to make sure you have great time. The Assamese food is delicious and freshly prepared by the chef who is justifiably proud of his meals. Much more than you can eat! If you tell Diganta where you are coming from and are going to next he or one of his extended local family will collect and take you to your next destination. He is an accomplished naturalist, birdwatcher and photographer and will take you to the nearby Gibbon sanctuary pointing out everything he sees. He may also be able organise trips of the tea plantations/factories and even trips into Nagaland where it may be possible to meet with local people. We would highly recommend staying here if you want to experience real Assamese village life and especially if you share the owners interest in birds, butterflies and/or nature photography.

The owner/host was outstanding and the accommodations wonderful. The host arranged and lead a trip through the Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary where we saw gibbons and pigtail monkeys. It was wonderful to hear the gibbons calling/talking from the tree tops. Saw many birds, squirrels, butterflies, etc. The chef at the Gibbon Resort was also very good.I would not hesitate to highly recommendation the Gibbon Resort and a trip to the Gibbon Resort.
