One of the best outing ever. We went in a big group of 14 people. The place was very easy to locate. It is located exactly inside Dandeli and lies close to Ganeshgudi. Situated next to the river Kali, the resort offers a phenomenal view of the water. The best part about the place is you can clearly hear the sound of water from any corner of the resort. This is something that makes it stand apart from the other resorts. The key attractions of the resort are the water sports that are indeed worth the time and the money that you spend. You can definitely enjoy the Natural Jacuzzi of the resort which is sure going to give you an ultimate experience. Other fun activities included coracle and river rafting. Staff here at the resort is very quick and humble. Whenever, we have ordered for anything while our stay at the resort, the staff neither declined nor took too long to help us. Our demands were immediately met.

Wanted to visit the famous Cellular Jail in Andaman with a proper guide so that I could get to know the history properly. I searched online and found this tour. Went for it because it was reasonably priced. It was a great experience. Was picked up at the right time and transported in a clean and comfortable vehicle with my friends, and dropped off at my hotel at the right time too. The guide, Manu was very knowledgeable and the light and sound show (English) was interesting and pretty. Highly recommend this tour by Thrillophilia if you want to have a good experience of cellular jail.

I did not think that the celluar jail needed a guided tour but my friends (was travelling with them), insisted. So we went for this package. It was amazing. The guide really knew a lot about the island and the history of the jail. He was very easy to understand and interesting to listen to. (fun aside: I also saw other people without guides trying to hear what he was saying about the jail because he made the experience totally different). The transport facilities were great too, smooth, on time and clean. Highly recommended tour.

Ross Island and Chidiyatapu visit was one of the tours we tried during our honeymoon trip in the island and we had a good time and happy to see those ancient buildings which have a lot of history with them. But the ruins tell a lot about those dark times of India. For those who love to know history, Ross Island can be a good choice. I liked the time we spent in Chidiyatapu more. When the sun sets, the blue water of the ocean just turns to become a multicoloured liquid. We had a great refreshing time there.

So, we planned this trip and went on trekking in this beautiful location. We booked the tour package and it was a 2 night and 3 day trip that was power packed and full of adventure. We clicked many pictures during our journey as the locations around were beautiful. Overall, it is a fun trip that all adventure enthusiasts must undertake.

Still can't believe our freedom fighters lived in such bad condition in Cellular jail. My respect for them is increased hundred times. So whenever you going to Andaman don't forget to visit jail as you will feel how lucky we are are that we live in free country.
