Here is some useful information that we would like you to know to help plan your trip better.
-Jungle Lore Birding Lodge is a set of four lovely cottages set in a village amidst oak trees. The view of the snow clad mountains is from the village, not from the lodge. Two of the cottages of the lodge- Upper and small cottage are close to the parking as well as the dining area. New and Jungle cottage is a little further down from small cottage, with a climb of about 8-10 stairs.For elderly guests, we would be happy to have them taken on a chair to their room and also make arrangements for food to be served there. This, however, is in cases where the guest has difficulty climbing/walking. All meals will be otherwise served in the Common dining area. It’s an excellent way to meet other fellow travelers, strike a conversation and share exciting stories.
– This picturesque place is ideal for nature lovers, Birdwatchers and for people who want to relax, unwind and have a laid back holiday.
-The cottage due to its location, at times, may face power cuts which are unavoidable.Being part of the Himalayan cover and passionate about maintaining its beauty, we avoid the use of generators to omit any input of carbon dioxide by us.The cottage, however, is well equipped with an inverter, torches, and candles for emergencies.
-To keep you warm we do have hot water showers through LPG heaters which are highly effective. During peak winters, due to the cold, the heating may be a little slow, but hot water will be provided in buckets.
-Water being a valuable resource and even more precious at a location such as this, we try and minimize wastage as much as possible.If your bath towels need to be washed every day, we request you to leave them in the basket or floor in the washroom. Otherwise, we will have them changed as per schedule. This helps us to save water.
-The dogs might bark at night if there are wild animals in the surroundings.
-There is a well-stocked library for all age groups to catch up on some reading in such a perfect setting.
-During winters, gas heaters and hot water bottles are readily provided in your room to keep you warm.
-The cottages do not have Televisions, and we are sure you won’t be missing much as mother nature will leave you spellbound with her myriad colors.Nature walks, village walk, hiking, rock climbing, rappelling, river crossing, flying fox, are a few of the activities that you can opt for here.
-Lastly, may we suggest you bring a small notebook along and make an entry every day, maybe add a sketch or two of the view from your room and check out the stars in the middle of the night – they are incredible!
