Very convenient location with a 1.5 hr drive from Kathgodam after an overnight train ride. The resort is not touristy and is a great relief to reach after an hours worth of steep climb from the motorable road. Service is good and so is the food. The high point is the owners Steve Lall and Parvati who treat guests more like guests at their own home.

very relaxing weekend getaway. the best part is that only true nature-enthusiasts come here as the trek from the car-park to the resort is almost an hour. chill in the cottage soaking in the beautiful view!

Best Experience: trek to the ridge....from where one can see the valley below.

Worst Experience: the small pests (leech) that are found everywhere in the monsoons. they suck on ur blood without any warning ..... so u have to be careful when u walk in the forest.

"A hideaway to beat all..."

  • 6.4/7

A hideaway to beat all others.

Best Experience: Lal, the \'junglee environmentalist\', is an interesting storyteller. The cottages are islands of privacy, far enough from each other for solitude and close enough to banish loneliness. The view from the top is tantalising. As is the prospect of bumping into a Victorian ghost by the dead of night. Best of all, it\'s like being in a time warp... time as a concept doesn\'t exist here. Just slow sunrises, lazy rambles in the forest and evenings that can go on for ever.

Worst Experience: The climb up is daunting. Paradoxically enough, it\'s also why Jilling\'s claim as \'the last resort\' still holds true. And the water is cold enough to chill the marrow.
