We visited Assam a week ago and are still with the feeling having the enchantment of the vacation and whomever, I have shared my photographs with are absolutely stunned. I started the vacation with a lot trepidation as our trip was planned by Ronnie, owner of Nature-Hunt Eco Camp whom I knew only through internet! My friends from UK and my parents (85 years Old) were joining us and till I landed and saw the car was not even sure if the contract will be honored. My wife also was worried after seeing all news about problems in Assam. The program was arranged so well, we saw all animals including gibbon but alas no tiger gibbon, so many birds( so many hornbills, jungle Fowls, owls,varieties of kingfishers and eagles etc) , trekked with elephant trumpeting nearby, great elephant rides, Bihu dance and satras and classical dance, Kamakya temple etc etc. A vacation of nature and culture. Food taste and variety at Nature-Hunt Eco camp was out of this world. We demanded bamboo rice and though it was not the season, they searched in the forest and got the bamboo.Do not miss asking for Komal rice. Each one working in the Eco camp vied to please us. Das, the manager, is bird and animal expert and his knowledge on them and where to find them was phenomenal. He tried to show us tiger too by taking us to the right place but we missed by a few minutes! He was feeling miserable. I wanted to a live snake and he showed me a poisonous one and he and our driver Tameez handled by hand and so I could see it 1 metre away ( I wanted to keep my distance). When you go there, ask Ronnie to give you Tameez as the driver, that guy drives safe, knows every thing and treats you with so much respect. Ronnie does a wonderful job of putting together a plan for each ones age and taste I have recommeded that all my friends contact him. Before I forget, this is a Eco-Camp, mids of of Tea estate but is they have done every thing to ensure your safety and comfort. We will go back again as this was one of the best trips we had in India.
