After a long year this is what you can expect from your holiday. It turned out outstanding. The caves, trekking and the bon fire with the residents in the hotel cannot be forgotten easily. Hoping to go back soon but this time as a couple.

Wow! Such a divine experience! This is one of the temples where we had a divine and beautiful experience. I totally loved the temple, the locality, and what not. To be honest, this was the temple that made me feel spiritual and great. I am glad to have visited this place.

Our group of 4 friends went here for our summer break, and it was a perfect choice for a short weekend to get away from the city and all its heat. The climate here is so soothing; you do not want to get up from your bed. The ambience was perfect, the tea tasted good and looked so beautiful and the trees and canopies around the stay gave the feeling of staying the English countryside.
