After a very long, bumpy ride, this was a wonderful surprise. The luxuriously rustic ecolodge with cottages built on stilts provided a once in a lifetime experience. Our rooms very among the best we stayed in during our 18 day trip to India. The showers felt like you were bathing in nature. Walking along the Diphlu River banks, interacting with the local children and watching the elephants getting their daily baths made for fond memories. The food was outstanding and the staff provided for all of our needs. Wish we could have stayed longer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Diphlu River Lodge is the only lodge at Kaziranga National Park that is situated right at the border of the park. We offer all-inclusive stays from three to ten days. Our well-trained naturalists take you out into the park by jeep, elephant or even on foot. We also offer jungle and river walks, village visits and boat rides on the Brahmaputra river where you may also get to view the rare Gangetic River Dolphin. With only twelve twin-bedded cottages, eight of which are individual and four semi-detached, Diphlu River Lodge is intimate in size and built using natural materials (like bamboo, thatch, etc.). Besides comfortable beds, each cottage has a pleasant sit-out as well as a writing desk, mini-bar and a small fridge. A complimentary selection of tea and coffee and an electric kettle is also at hand for when you need a cuppa. The bathroom has a rain shower and a roomy dressing area with a fitted wardrobe. ... more less
