Majuwa Forest Camp

Sawaji Khola, Bengal1500

“I have loved colours, not flowers
Their motion, not swallows wings,
And wasted nearly half my hours,
Without the comradeship of things.

How is it, now that I can see
With love and wonder and delight,
The children of the hedge and tree,
The little lords of day and night?

I feel, in every midge that hums,
Life, fugitive and infinite,
And suddenly the world becomes
A part of me and I of it.”

Welcome to Majuwa Forest Camp, a pure, green abode of peace jostling with dense foliage of Singalila forest range at an altitude of 5000 ft. The continuous murmuring of the Sawaji Khola and chirping of a variety of birds, dancing butterflies(in impossibly different hues) and a huge array of bio-diversity make a wonderful feast for your eyes and ears. As if Mother Nature is always in a festive mood! A tributary of the famous Rangeet river, the Sawaji Khola runs aside the Majuwa village which is hardly 5 km from Maneybhanjang, in Darjeeling district.

The Camp

The forest camp promotes eco-tourism in the truest sense. All the materials used for construction are locally available and made by villagers themselves. The cottages are made of wood, bamboo and stone and in some parts, walls are inlaid with wonderful chataai. The wooden and bamboo furnitures are simple but so beautiful, and adds a unique, rustic charm to it.

Let the morning begin...

Just listening to endless songs of the flowing river stream sounds like a lullaby down there, birds and wind whistles through trees, wandering through the serpentine idle road will add charm to your solitude with piping hot tea or spicy noodles or may be something else. The lazy morning delight will be manifold when you see little heads of school goers are coming out of the lower hills, steadied on road and again slowly disappearing in the bends of upper hills. Time actually flows of its own and when your vacation ended you fail to register.

A leisure afternoon...

The tranquil beauty of this serene place has completely engulfed your mind. You can spend hours sitting on the balcony of the cottage and listening to the sweetest songs of blue whistling thrush, verditer flycatcher and many other local birds which is perfectly harmonized with the sound of river Sawaji khola.

Come out, come out, where ever you are

Sit outside of the small little pool and see cloud and sun is playing hide and seek, and the place is absolutely silent, except for the constant hum of the river. Half lay on the wet boulders right on the riverbed and stared at the vast open sky and green mountains that surrounded you, and the innumerable butterflies.
