The place can be accessed by a 4x4 road in the last stretch from Sakleshpur and has a few scattered independent cottages. The cottages are large enough and the bathroom has a sky view with plants around. Don't be surprised if you find a couple of snails in there! There is a so called waterfall in the property that is...

Foods are also bad. No choices. They aren't able provide evening snacks during camp fire as promised. Breakfast choice is very very limited. Though the location...

Hospitality very good.Starting from Mr Premnath Rai who...

It is rare that places closer to Bangalroe are this calm and serene, we all loved the place. In small bursts of walks you can go to a stream, waterfall, hillocks, grass plains etc. You will have to park your cars & take a 4x4 jeep to go this place. There was this friendly dog (forgot the name) who has...

This was our first outing with our (little over a year) baby so had been apprehensive all along. Loved the place instantly. Greenery all around, it looked like a picture perfect postcard.

The place is worth taking your time to see as it is nested in the western ghats which are older than Himalayas.Tusk and Dawn is one of the places in these western ghats which will allow you to experience the rich bio diversity and endemism. The resort has been kept clean and the staff's hospitality is good. Thanks to Prem...
