The drive to the location is scenic and if you love driving, then it is a double-treat. We reached around 2 PM in the afternoon last weekend and yes, it was raining but intermittently. We enjoyed the rainy weather a lot. Kids had an absolutely wonderful experience with some of the activities on site like playing in the slushy mud, rain dance, and of course we spend a good amount of time in the water stream that passes around this camping site. No, it's not a river... it is a big water stream that flows from the hills around the site. The staff is extremely helpful, and Aditya who manages the site is a great person. He can also talk in Hindi and English fluently, not just Kannada. So, you will never have to worry about communication issues. The food was super delicious all through lunch, dinner and breakfast... served hot. In fact, when we arrived at the site we were the only guests there and that earned us brownie points in specifying the menu for both lunch and dinner. We did not stay in the tents that were available as we had two kids who were less than five years old and didn't want the weather to affect their health. Next time for sure though. The cottages were well-maintained and we stayed in one of them. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking with the stream flowing right in front of the cottages. Overall, a fantastic place to unwind and relax... and have fun with the various activities. A big thank you to the staff for making our stay a memorable one. I for one would surely like to revisit this place and stay for more than a day. And, in the rainy season! Cheers!
A secluded home stay in the middle of jungle and mountains with little to no connectivity to the city. The jeep ride from hanbal to the spot is hell of a journey, you’ll remember forever. The view point from the spot is amazing and out of the world. However, beware of leeches if you’re going in monsoons. It’s a perfect weekend gateway if you want to relax with your family and friends.

"Awesome experience! "
10 February 2020
This home stay is TOP of the hill and we should park our vehicle at their parking place, after they will pickup us on their jeep. while jeep travel awesome and unforgettable moment. At home stay less games only available. But they take us trekking at evening and morning both are very beautiful and calm and relax.
"Staff at the home stay were friendly courteous and helpful . A good number of activities were offered at the campsite -Kayaking, Zip lining , trekking , archery , badminton and many more . Kayaking was very relaxing and is a must try, early morning trek was also impressive .\n\nQuality of food was decent . Also the home stay staff were quite happy to help setup a barbecue on request which made the stay all the more enjoyable .\n\nNote: Last 3km leading to the site is slushy and may be difficult manoeuvre using a car meant for the cities."

The campaign was great and the activities were sorted out. We went on a Thursday which ensured that we had the whole place to us and hence we were more at peace. The food can be improved.

I have to give 4 star just because the place . One the most amazing place to stay. It is literally near a mountain river. Kayaing was amazing. Night stay in camp was perfect, you can also choose to stay in room, but trust me camp is perfect. Washroom was common but was clean. Bonfire experience is also magical. Now the one start i deducted because of thrillophilia. Before booking they will take care of all you queries and everything. As you know you won't know the location before booking, so booked it. I got confirmation and all got the contact information but they was not reachable. I tried calling thrillophilia multiple times after booking to let me know about the exact location and also poc. But till finally i got the details when I was about to reach I had to wait for 1hr on the road to get the details as in where to go.
"very nice place to chill , very friendly host and an thrilled ride on Jeep"
Very nice camping experience with in the river side. Organisers are friendly. Food is really awesome. Campfire with music. Kayaking on lake. Carrom. Cricket. Volley. Rain dance. And other games are available. You can go for trekking in morning. They keep toilets clean but it’s common for all so waiting time is little worry.
