Hats off that this resort is actually run at all odds! It's a wonder how they could build all this while it takes a 35 minute arduous drive to reach there covering 3.5 km. No wired communication or power. It's all out if thin air and diesel. So kudos to the team that runs this. Nature is at its best. You get a perfect warm welcome. Go there to reach after a gripping ride, relax in a nonchalant way, laze around, eat what you get, don't complain for small inconveniences like broken tub in the bathroom, a shower takes minimum twenty minutes since the water pressure is low, etc. (remember, power is generated from diesel gensets) and enjoy your stay there! Go there to be there, enjoy nature, it's quite safe though you are in wilderness. Don't go if you have plans to see places keeping this as base. Take a high suspension vehicle. Does not score high for value-for-money enthusiasts! And before I forget to tell you, be prepared to check out at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Certain things here work on clock work precision, though at times the morning coffee you order may never come! All in all if you want a safe place with decent comforts in the midst of a jungle, and want to enjoy the secluded wilderness, this is a decent option! But you know what, both the price and climb to this place are too steep for what it offers! Good luck folks!
