After such a hectic trip around northeast India this place was the perfect antidote. It's the most relaxed we have felt this holiday and the most beautiful, peaceful place we've been. Next time we visit India we'll come straight here. Thank you so much!19/10/2022

We are hugely grateful for the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful and untouched area. Two days spend trekking in the jungle, listening to the birds and relaxing in peace. Thank you Deepen for taking care of us and cooking some exceptional fresh food throughout our time here. Wish we were here for longer and I am sure we will return.01/11/2022

A warm welcome by Deepen at midnight is what I appreciate the most. Hot food was ready when we reached here after a hectic day of travel from Siliguri to Khecheopalri. A bright morning with wonderful view refreshed me. I will never forget the village walk and the interactions I had with people in the village. Spent some good time relaxing with young cheerful people of the village listening to their singing.28/04/2017
