Very basic lodging very close to the Gibbon Sanctuary which allows you to get an early start there in the morning. Friendly people and good food. Bucket shower, but hot water was provided. Get to Jorhat, then take a minibus to Mariani, then negotiate transport to the Eco Lodge or arrange through the owners. Not the most restful night's sleep I've ever had. Unfortunately I felt that they tried to extract as much money from me as reasonably possible for guiding and transport connections - which was a shame. Perhaps it was just down to language misunderstandings.
Two minute walk to Hoollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary which is why I stayed. After three emails that someone would pick me up at airport nobody was there. A storm knocked out power the day before I arrived. Host are nice food ok, small property with basic room was what I expected. A step above camping but cottage did keep the rain out.
The bamboo hut is quit basic, yet very comfertable with great ambiance. 5 minuites walk from the gibbons reserve. The hosts are amazing, and the dinner was one of our best meals in India. Thank you for everything!
Lovely little eco camp setup with the help of Jayanta and his eco tourism drive. It is a homestay and has basic, but comfortable rooms. The cottage we stayed in was a lovely bamboo structure with a verandah, a large space with a comfortable bed and a bathroom. The family took care of us and the food was really the highlight of the trip! So very delicious! And we also got to see the fishing in the local pond.. quite a new experience for us! Very pleasant stay and a stones throw from the sanctuary. One can even watch the trains go past in the nearby track and walk through the tea gardens across the track.
The Gibbon Eco Camp is a house built the traditional way with four guest rooms. The room is small and has two simple beds and a bedside table. There are clean bed sheets and a warm blanket. There is a plug in the room to charge camera batteries. Two rooms have attached bathrooms. The bathroom has a proper toilet and two water taps sticking out of the wall (no shower). Bring your own toilet paper and towels. There is a sink on the verandah where you eat your meals. The food was very good and cheap. Bottled water is available. There are no shops/restaurants nearby so bring other snacks you might need during your stay. The Eco Camp is just 200 m from the entrance to the Gibbon Sanctuary. The Eco Camp is very basic and you can't expect any luxuries (no hot water, WiFi etc.). However, it gives you a good starting point to get into the park early morning. Also this is a perfect example of local villagers living near the park trying to benefit from having a park next door. Jayanta speaks English and tries his very best to please you. He picked us up in Johrat where we got down from the bus. It was already dark and I don't know how he even found our bus. He comes along when you visit the park. He is happy to take you for a walk in the tea gardens. He came with us back into town to make sure we got into the right bus. This is very rural India and we as foreigners felt well taken care off by Jayanta. While this lodge might be one-star, the service was five-stars. So I would not recommend this for an extended holiday but it serves well to spend the night before you go into the park.…
