An excellent place if you want to be away from maddening crowd, mobile ranges, connectivity and enjoy the local culture. We were a total of 13 including children and had a great time. the local delicacies prepared by them, the resort per se, services by the staff and hospitality was far more than what was desired.. Though the temperatures in the noon were on higher side but evening it had become really pleasant and one required a blanket. Mr Kar, the owner was himself there during our stay and his knowledge about local tourism and tribes is envious. The place is highly recommended for a group of people who want to enjoy "Socially responsible tourism"

If you want a break from your hustle bustle city life Desia Eco Tourism Camp is a perfect place to stay.Situated in the district of Koraput,a remote place in the lap of nature,surrounded by the hills and forests is a perfect place to forget your worries.Who says we can't live without network?Staying in the camp without network is an amazing experience. The cottages are good with basic facilities.Yes,if you expect five star luxury facilities you may be disappointed. The staff are courteous. Food is excellent. Right from the arrival we were pampered by the staff.The river behind the cottage is beautiful and having breakfast in the riverside is awasome.One can spend an evening with the people in a local village,dancing and taking food with them.I bet,the flavor and taste of their food is not less than any big hotels.I can recommend this place if you are a nature lover.Go,relax in the lap of nature and forget your worries.....

A picturesque place with a wonderful staff.They really take care of you. Morning walks to nearby villages an exhilarating experience. The river behind the cottage is beautiful. It is situated such that you can go to jagdalpur ,Arku Valley for day trips .Food is good.The only things needing improvement is hot water supply in rooms

A beautiful abode in the middle nature. From lush jungles and never ending green fields to friendly colourful tribals and awesome food all you can find in one place. We reached Desia with list expectation as we understand that for covid The camp was closed for a long time and top to that its rainy season but to our surprise we find all seevices were perfect , the staff are very efficient and coutious, starting from welcoming us to pampering us with delicious ocal food. The best part is having breakfast on riverside. Though i could not meet the owner Mr. Kar , i really appriciate his effort to creat such a beautiful place in middle of jungle and thankful for giving us oppertunity to having a wonderful experience. We loved everything there. And ofcourse i will definitely revisit the place.

The place is well planned and laid out. Doesn't belie any of the details in the description. The proprietor Mr Yogabrat is quite responsive. We had occupied a deluxe triple occupancy in a mud house. Quite cold inside...the beds were comfy with clean sheets and blankets; the bathroom design was attractive and was neat. Hot water was available. The house itself has a tiled roof covered in climbers. Apart from that, there were also tents (2pax) and standard rooms also available. Breakfast was complimentary. The check-in and out alwas flexible. The guide Mr Sanjay Mishra has a vast experience and good knowledge of the terrain. They give their best but you need to know what to ask. Points to note:- 1. No mobile network coverage in the area. Right from Arakku. So be preapred to fall off the grid. There is a BSNL landline that may connect you in case you need to call someone. 2. The food is prepared by the workers there and is tasty. But be precise and well in advance intimate your requirement. 3. All details about the tribes and where and how to reach them can be sought from the guide. Atleast 2 nights and 3 days are required to get a good feel. Do taste all the local brew. 4. Location on Google Maps leads you somewhere else. When you reach Lamtaput, please ask the localities. If you come from Arakku, turn left into the road with the arch showing 'Munchkund Hydro Electric Project'. From that point, its nearly 12km. A wkrd to the wise is that if you decide to visit this place, download Offline Maps.

This place is located in Koraput district, a fairly remote place in Odisha. I, being from Odisha, thought to stay in this place for 2 nights. It took me a long 11 hrs drive with my family to reach there. The drive itself was amazing - beautiful roads cutting through some of the least habited and untouched mountains, jungles, and lakes. It was a beautiful experience. Now coming to the place. We reached there around 7 and within an hour decided to leave soon in the morning. - Space - It's a small place right on the road. I stayed in a tent. The cottages and tents are very close to the road, which means you can hear the vehicle sound, the honking all too clearly till at least 8 in the night. If you expect to have a "peaceful" stay, you may be a little disappointed. - Room - I don't know about the cottages, but the tents where I stayed for a night - to use one word to describe - were dirty. The floor (which I kinda expect), the towels, bedsheets. As it's solar-powered, hot water takes time, which in my case took a very long time and I gave up. - Outdoor - The place itself is small. The cottages, tents are very close to each other; so not a lot of privacy. In the morning 6, the large group who were staying closeby started talking all too loudly. Did not matter to us much actually, as we were getting ready to leave at around 6. Now large groups talking is something the management can't do anything about anywhere, but with a cramped setting, it gets noisy. With all the space in this part of the country, this place should have been spacious, way spacious to have a good "outdoor feel". - People - People are nice. They are courteous but need to be trained. One of their staff started smoking near the bonfire. It's not the cigarette smoke that bothered us. It's about not smoking when guests are around. There are smaller things, but the staff needs to be trained to manage guests better to improve this place. - Food - The food was good. The chicken curry was really amazing. So was the pakodas. But some items could be improved. And the number of items as well. Overall, I won't recommend this place. Tent at 3-3.5K without meals is not worth it at all. If you are nearby, it may be worth a visit, but traveling long-distance specifically to be there does not make any sense to me.

A special place in west Odisha, far from the tourist's trail, near tribal villages, tribal markets, and a beautiful nature. The place is run by a special person that knows a lot about the area and interested in keeping its originality. The resort is a quiet territory where you can stay to relax or as a base for touring around.. The food is very good homemade food and the local stuff is wonderful. it was an exciting experience, the best we had in Odisha

A great initiative to support the tribes of Bentalbiri and surrounding villages. They organize a walk to the nearby villages and you can also take part in the day-to-day activities of the women managing the place during the day.

We three couple stayed in this Camp. When we booked this, we were nervous, about once we reached the place, the hospitality and homely food surprised us. Two foreign young ladies are in charge of this camp, which is run with the help of local adivasi ladies and gents. It is situated on the bank of river which adds attraction to those who love water and bathing on natural atmosphere.

We visited Desia as our first trip to Koraput district. It is a beautiful unspoilt area of India with beautiful drives, lush green gentle landscapes, friendly tribal culture, and lovely waterfalls. Desia provided a wonderful gateway to all of it. The camp is with all modern amenities but served in a responsible way. The whole set up is managed primarily by rearby tribals. It is clean, and some of the cottages are wonderful pieces of art. We could get accommodations only in the tents as the cottages were already booked, but clicked a few pics there. We met two French women, Alice and Chloe who were running the place. Over the last 18 month of them being there, they could speak workable Odia, and could seamlessly interact with the tribal women working there. We could see the tribal women were really fond of them. It was wonderful to see the purity of their human spirit overcoming boundaries of language culture food etc. Their purpose and journey was a fascinating learning for us (and our kids). It is close to (12 I’m, 30 min drive) Duduma waterfall, perhaps the only waterfall of its size that’s still not infested with tourists. There are 3 streams, two of which are accessible. It is awesome to spend the mornings there. Enclosed are some pics. Near by tribal villages are accessible by less than 30 min walks. Experiencing the college life was very nice.
