Weekend Getaway 40: Tree house @ Inn The Wild

Date: 11th and 12th Feb 2017

Tourist: Arun, Shilpi and Harsh.

Costs: 9900 per night for 3. All inclusive.

After the back breaking drive from the check post to the resort we checked in and completed the formalities. Shibu the manager explained us about the stay and activities for 1 day. He explained ours is tree house (harsh came to know only now its tree house stay) and located bit away from all other rooms. The tree house was facing the water body located in the property. We can roam around the property as we wish from 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM. He asked us not to wander out or get down from the tree after it gets dark. We could understand that as we went around the property. We saw elephant dung at many places around the resort. There were wild boar and deer grazing around as the sun started setting down. We went to the tree house and we expected harsh to be super exited. He was happy but was not very exited as we expected. He said Appa what's this it looks like a room only. There is bed, table fan, bathroom with gyeaser, wash basin everything looks like room. I explained him we need all these to use and only jaggu can stay without any of these. He slowly started liking the room. We sat in the balcony looking at the small  pond. We saw only buffaloes. We freshened up and went to the dining hall. It was a buffet lunch with soup, rice, fulkha, 2 non veg, 3 veg gravy and 2 sweets. Harsh liked the gulab jammon so much that he had 5. The nature walk was planned at 4:30 and we had plenty of time. We went back to the room, i slept for a while and Harsh and shilpi were sitting in balcony and talking. I woke up and joined them in their some meaningless talk we saw a beautiful black bird with orange chest. We saw a parrot with dark red beak just flying across.  We realized jungle is not only about the big animals but also the other life. Above our balcony came a woodpecker and racket tailed drongo. It was our first sighting of the drongo or may be first time we paid some attention to the birds. We saw an owl and another bird during safari that we dont remember the name. We went for the nature walk in evening and safari in night and came back to the room. We were asked not to come out after dark so a jeep came to pick us for the safari and they droped back in room after dinner. Night we heard some noise like some one was climbing the steps. Harsh has gone into deep sleep. Shilpi and I was bit nervous. We heard the sound couple of times but we decided to ignore it and slept with the lights on. I woke up around 4:30 AM and it was i guess one day before full moon day. I open the window screen and could see the beautiful moon just above my head. It was an amazing sight.
