Manas Jungle Lodge

Mesmerizing Manas — A True Paradise Of Natural Biodiversity

Dusk in Assam at the border of India and Bhutan is like being halfway to heaven. On one side of the majestic Manas River is the lush national park which takes its name from the river, and on the other are the misty Himalayan foothills, which turn golden at sunset.

A perfect place to appease the outdoorsy person in you, there is ample scope for the visitor to enjoy a jungle safari with a chance to stumble upon some of the most majestic animals of the jungle. If you are lucky enough, a tiger is just a leap away from you. Whoa! Do not worry; you will be in safe hands with a guided tour through the jungle. Click as many pictures, close ups or a selfie with the one-horned rhino in the backdrop, you will hardly find a dull moment during your stay in ‘Manas National Park’.

A UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, a Project Tiger Reserve and an Elephant Reserve in Assam (India), it nourishes and rejuvenates your soul like nothing else. The park is contiguous with the Royal Manas National Park in Bhutan, the oldest protected area in this small Himalayan nation. The air, water and the land, everything shines and sparkles here, sprinkling magic dust on the beholder! If you have to send a postcard to serenity, this is its address.

As the miles of forests cascade and the cityscape fades into oblivion during the road trip, this is where one arrives at, when entering from Bansbari (the entry point to the park in Assam’s Barpeta district) and that’s just the beginning of the journey deep into the lush forests. This is where the traveller can begin wandering along the Manas river, as it flows through the expansive landscape, to drift from rock to rock, tree to bush, grove to grove; or simply watch the river flow, healing, nourishing.

The Lodge

Owned by ‘Assam Tourism’, the ‘Manas Jungle Lodge’, situated in prime position right at the entrance to the ‘Manas National Park’, overlooking the tranquil 60-year-old tea garden on one side, jungle and views of the Himalayan foothills on the other. The 16 large twin-bedded rooms all have attached bathrooms and the Lodge is simply but comfortably furnished. The Lodge also has electricity.

There is a welcoming atmosphere to the Lodge, which includes an attractive dining room and a lobby where you can relax on sofas, browsing through books from their library. In fine weather tables and chairs are set outside for breakfast and the spacious grounds are fast becoming a delightful garden in which to stroll.

We are recommended to those enjoying the great nature of Himalayan wilderness of Manas National Park, not for those seeking comfort and style.

It’s not a destination for the average tourist, and more appealing to genuine travellers who enjoy getting off the beaten track - a shame really, because Manas National Park is one of India’s officially designated tiger breeding areas. The Park is a splendid and unspoiled wonderland rich in animal, bird and plant life. Visitors prepared to explore one of India’s more remote areas will see certainly see elephants, buffalo, deer, monkeys, giant storks, peacocks and hawks, and maybe even tigers and leopards.
