Our aim is to create awareness among travelers about genuine and sustainable green lodging. We are with a rural settings. All our Tents are Non Air Conditioned Tents. We don’t have TV in the rooms as well as Telephone Network is very slow & some times not available in this area, could be a blessing for the visitors who wants to be out of their daily tough job schedule & busy life style. We don’t have any evening cultural program. We expect our visitors to spend their time with the family knowing them, playing with them on the sands,
walking on the river side holding the hand of their beloved ones, flying kites & running after the butter flies. Local villagers are trained to take care of your stay, cook the meal for you & assist you during the visit. Expecting hotel type stay in our camp would be a disaster of your planning. Be in our camp with yourself only. Staying with us is a different charm.
