We have built 2 Bamboo cottages and 2 Tents in our Farm to make your stay comfortable. We have built these facilities by using 80 % of the products which can be either reused or can easily disintegrate with nature. We are also having an irrigation tank in the middle of the accommodation, which can double up as pool to cool yourselves on a hot day. Please remember it is a farm stay and the fringes of the reserve forest. Definitely you will encounter some uninvited visitors coming to say hello to you.
