Matha Buru Kali
This place is about an “experience”. We spent a cold December night spending beside a bonfire, with an old friend, sharing stories of old days, sitting under an open, star lit sky. There is a decent sized camping ground at the foot hill of the Matha hill. All around is darkness and forests. The “dome” tent where we stayed was very comfortable too. Did not feel the wind or the cold ground disturb the sleep. We went with some expectations, we were doubly rewarded.
Some hard facts: this place is very remote; the service is not quick and efficient; quality of food is decent but dont expect excellently cooked food. We were served rice,dal, egg curry, chutney in the afternoon.Roti-chicken-salad at night. Puri-subzi in the evening – which is decent as per my understanding.
