“Roughing it out in the Jungle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2010

Well, if you want to experience the jungle, minus the luxury of a resort or a well maintained jungle camp, Nisargadhama is where you should head too. Its situated quite close to the Mysore - Madekeri highway, in Coorg, but I was surprised at how quiet and silent it could get at night.

The location itself is quite amazing - a hanging bridge is what separates you from the rest of the world. The accommodation is on the banks of the cauvery river and it is quite an amazing feeling. The rooms however could have been better maintained. The food was hygienic and hot, but that was about it - nothing great to write home about.

There are a lot of monkeys on the property and they make quite a racket at night. The sound of the river flowing by however is a perfect antidote to that. The washrooms are very basic. Lots of moths and insects end up as uninvited guests once it turns dark. I must be sounding pessimistic, but I guess you'd be happy, if you were prepared for what to expect. I would recommend this to friends who like the Jungle experience and don't expect to be in the lap of luxury.

Ever dreamt of staying inside a jungle for the night. We'll this place dishes up your dream on a platter. Although located on the Mysore - Madekeri Highway, you'll never hear any of the traffic.

A Bridge connects the resort to civilization and its so secluded that the only noises that you hear while in this resort are those of the birds, the monkey (there's lots of them) and the river gushing by - yes, you heard it right. Its located on the banks of the Cauvery river and each of the accomodation huts has a balcony positioned such that you are sitting on top of the river.

Now imagine having dinner and maybe a few drinks with the river gushing away right under you. Incredible. The resort is full of birds, butterflies, nature and peace.

So what are the downsides. Well, I happen to sleep like a log and slept like one too. My wife on the other hand is a very light sleeper and the monkeys on the tree and roof kept her sleep disturbed. The food provided in the canteen is very basic and only veg so if you want something non-veg or more then, you need to make your own arrangement.

The service is very prompt and timely - nothing great though. The rooms (log cabins) are very comfortable but very basic.

I would strongly recommend this place to those who want to experience the jungle. Go with a open mind and you won't be disappointed. A Tip - Please book well in advance because of the rates (700 a night) the place is almost always full.
