He shares a keen interest in cooking and wildlife.

HolidayIQ Traveller Uma Maheshwari shares, “Each and every moment is best experience there and the chef will prepare whatever dish you asked for. And you can also cook if you wish. There will be no signal except for BSNL Subscribers, so we were disconnected when we reached there. But thanks to Mr.George Bird, he gave us two mobiles with BSNL sim cards(Two days we used the phone without any expense). In the morning, there was no power and we were fearing of taking bath with the cold water. But to our surprise, hot water started to come from the taps. Later we came to know that they boiled water with firewood and poured in tanks. They will serve you in all possible ways though there will be some constraints like poor power supply.”
