  • We booked Bamboo Grove and the service was excellent.Food was the most positive aspect.We did the Green Walk and it was a great experience.We had booked Jungle Camp which was unfortunately cancelled because of the rain(16-October).But the Management refunded the amount in less than two weeks which is worth appreciating considering it is taking months for private sectors to refund amount. We will definitely plan for a trip to enjoy Jungle Camp.Thanks Team.
  • We went for green walk through the forest. The guide was really good. But there are leeches everywhere. They would provide shoe and leg cover till knees. But frequent spraying of tobacco powder really keeps leeches away.
