We booked one cottage at Ramshai Rhino Camp by the usual procedure of booking through Lataguri NIC( Ph 03561266340) for two adults and one child aged 9. They charged Rs 5100/- which includes three meals( Lunch with fish, dinner with Country chicken and breakfast as well as tea in the morning and evening), elephant safari, going to watch tower by Buffalo cart( not Bullock as mentioned by some reviews) and tribal dance show. It's a complete package. For two persons it's Rs 3900/-. I was allotted Kaziranga Cottage . Cottage allotment is from Lataguri NIC Office.

It's situated at the end of Ramshai village in between Jadavpur Tea garden and river Murti. The property has four cottages with spacious rooms and a balcony. The room is neat and clean and has two double beds. Bath room is clean (Only Manas and Kaziranga has geysers). There is a common dining room at the center and a lawn beside a water body. It requires 35 minutes to reach the watch tower by the cart. U and particularly ur kids will enjoy the ride. The path goes along the river at one side and tea garden at the other. After some distance we spotted two Rhinos opposite the river. After reaching the Medla watch tower we spent some time in the tower and saw a Rhino grazing . Our safari on elephant started from the Medla camp. We saw four Rhinos at a close distance sitting on the back of the elephant. We started at 3:15 PM from Ramshai and returned at 6 PM. Upon reaching we were served Tea with pokora . They arrange tribal dance show everyday in the evening. After dinner we retired to room.
I woke up at the early morning. I went out for a stroll amidst the chirping of the birds. Later in the morning we spent time on the Murti river flowing nearby with crystal clear water and absolutely safe. We checked out at 11:30 AM and were given three jute floor mats as gifts.
Go there , spend one day and return with absolute bliss.

Some facts: There are two eco villages at this side of Gorumara NP . One is at Kalipur just beside the jungle and this one( Rhino Camp Ramsai).
Ramshai Rhino Camp rooms are more spacious and has a view of river from the two backside cottages (Manas and ( Kaziranga) some 300- 400 meters away and and a water body just beside the cottage. For room booking dial the no as mentioned above and the procedure will b communicated to u. U can go through my review of Dhupjhora Elephant Camp with this no( wrong no at that review).
There was no power cut during my stay. I saw one generator room outside the property but I forgot to enquire about that and during March end the weather was still a cool one.
Nearest station is New Moynaguri 30 minutes by car, good road condition. Or u can avail any train from NJP. From NJP it takes 1.5 to 2 hours to reach Lataguri via Gojoldoba road. From Lataguri it is 17 kms, out station drivers might not know the exact location. Follow Google map or ask the person at the NIC for the direction. Monoj the care taker can arrange pick up or station drop if required.
Lastly: it's a govt run jungle experience. Don't expect anything other than mentioned. It's for the types of people who love jungles and serenity. No TV at rooms, one is at the dining room. But there are so much activities that u don't need one.
PS : don't forget to bring ID card and a photocopy of ID card. Though they didn't insist on photocopy but other camps insist on that.
For any queries u can contact me at mlayek@gmail.com

The Gorumara National Park in Northern West Bengal has 2 Eco-Villages. We stayed at the Kalipur Eco-Village. Beautiful property with 4 rooms (sort of huts basically), that can accommodate 3 persons each. Rooms are lovely with attached bath which has all amenities except a geyser. This deficiency is more than made up by the service boys who would provide hot water from the kitchen at the drop of the hat.
Imagine living in such a place where electrified elephant fences run just behind the huts.A huge tea Garden is across the dirt track that takes you inside the village. The package includes all foods - delicious and plenty. It also includes an Elephant Safari inside the National Park. We saw hordes of Indian Gaur and a couple of Rhinos during safari. Peacocks dance around the place throughout. The best part of the stay was a tribal dance show in the evening. Services are excellent. You even get a parting gift when you leave. See the photographs.

Room tip: All huts (Cottages) are equally good.

Kalipur eco village is indeed a very nice place to stay. Its actually just outside the core are of Gorumara forest with 4 cottages. Foods are as a part of packages and are indeed too good. Foods are cooked by the resident cooks from the adjoining village. Tea plantation is just at the opposite side of the entrance. The also arrange for local village traditional dance form shows exclusively for the ppl staying over der and its also included in the package aldo u have to pay certain tips to them, i mean not necessarily but we did. We 3 of mah frndz were here last sep.

No doubt Kalipur eco village is an excellent place to say but I must say that for 2 heads it costs Rs.3900.00 for a single day including fooding and elephant riding except bullock cart riding to Medhla Watch Tower. In the year 2010 tariff was only Rs.2600.00. Forest Department should take initiative to lower the price.

Kalipur Eco village ---- Kamal Kanti babu (caretaker) alloted the cottage 'Dhadda' (one of the four cottages) for us. The compound was decorated with hammock,pond,sitting arrangement with umbrella,spacious lawn etc. And the style of the cottages are almost same as in Dhupjhora except tree-hut., the cottages are one and half storied height. Soon after lunch we had to go to Medhla Watch Tower. We spotted Rhino, Bisons, Peacocks and Hornbills ( beng. Dhanesh Pakhi) from there. On the way back we enjoyed Bullock Cart riding. Reaching to the cottage we had tiffin with Tea and Pakoras in the evening--room service. And again Tribal dance at around 7.30-- they performed different occational songs and dances in front of us with dandia,dhol, dhamsa,madol etc. And after a delicious dinner we went back to our room with the warning not to come out of the cottage at night, as Leopard may come in the compound.
Next morning it was the time for our scheduled elephant safari--58 yrs old big Meghlal took us on his back towards jungle. We spotted two Rhinos, few Bisons, Peacocks and a numbers of River lapwings ( beng. Hattimatim tim, local name. Hattiti) on the riverside. It was a joyous feelings sitting on elephant back while it was crossing Murti river. After breakfast the memorable part of the trip ended.

Room tip: All are equally good.
