This lodge has the three things that any nature lover looks for while planning a holiday (1) Location (2) Location (3) Location we went in the rainy season so the surroundings were so green that we could see only trees and no rocks or soil on the surrounding mountains. The clouds came rolling in every day in the evening and... More

The place is just perfect... amazing property, lots and lots of birds, lovely and caring staff and delicious food. We went there in October 2015 and stayed for 3 days. The mornings are just amazing, the whole world is filled with the chatter of birds, each singing a different tune but yet they sound like a grandiose orchestra! If you... More

A true Jungle experience when rare birds like the Red billed Blue Magpie come and perch just across your verandah !!. They do perch on your extended arm too if you do extend it that is !!. The lodge has a beautiful bird observatory where the cheer pheasant comes along for a drink or two. All in all i can... More

For birders it is a paradise. More than ten species visit here. Cute cottages with basic facilities. Fresh, home made food served in the dining hall. I got what I came looking for. Own vehicle is a must to visit surrounding areas. I spotted Cheer pheasant behind the tent. Many in front of the dining hall.
