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.
