*It is advisable to take the second route as road condition is much better.

About Location

This was booked by my brother in law; we had some doubts till we reached here. I personally do not believe in internet booking without much proper reference. We were  with the resort owners and celebrated  New year’s 2011-31st December. I am sure that one can always send a group of girls in their custody to have a cool time. It’s such a homely place. Altogether; It is the attitude which makes all the difference S.K. Sen Gupta - Mumbai
