Such a lovely, in the middle of wilderness, by the river side place this is. So close to Bangalore (about 3 hours), you can go there on a regular weekend too.
Not a very large resort, but it met all expectations - of a comfortable stay, good food and just enough activities.
The thing with JLR resorts it, they dont let you get bored. We reached just before lunch (the last few kilometers off the main road, are practically driving on the river bed... so be a tad careful on which car you drive there in), we were given a welcome drink by the river side where a signboard read "beware of crocodiles"!!!
Lunch was yum, an afternoon siesta, and evening was a coracle ride in crocodile infested waters!
We walked back through the forest-river bed. this was followed by a lovely barbeque with the most delicious barbequed-chicken I have ever had and some star gazing. The best thing with the JLR staff is their knowledge of nature. The team helped us really star gaze, showing us important constellations, stars, Mars et al...
Dinner and a documentary later, we were ready to call it a night.
Morning dawned with a 'trek' along the river bank... and lots of bird watching and trees identification.
Breakfast and lazing on the hammocks later, we were ready to (sadly!) head back to Bangalore.More
