Dandeli - Where to stay

Monday, October 08, 2007

How to reach:
One way is to take a train to Dharwad/Alnavar/Londa and catch a bus from there towards Dandeli. There are also quite a few buses from Bangalore to Dharwad on a daily basis. But it is better to arrange for own transporation from Dharwad because places in and around Dandeli tend to be remote and means of commutation infrequent. From Dharwad, take the road to Dandeli through Haliyal. It lies around 65kms away and needs little over an hour to reach.

Options to stay:

- An excellent option is to stay in the Jungle Lodges Kali river lodge (http://www.junglelodges.com).

- Another little known option is the JLR camp at Ganeshgudi as well.

- For the budget travelers and for people who love to stay closer to the forests, there is the Kulgi nature camp (Rs. 250-500 per tent on twin sharing basis). This camp run by the karnataka forest department is very well maintained and strategically located around 11km from Dandeli at the edge of the wildlife sanctuary. For the Kulgi nature camp, one needs to book the tents in advance with the DFC (deputy forest conservator) office in Dandeli as they are well sought after and generally not available at a short notice.

- For those preferring to stay within Dandeli town, the "State Lodge" (Rs.350 per double bed) opposite the bus stand is convenient.

- The guest house within the West coast paper mill factory (Rs.200 for 4 beds) is another option but I suppose one needs to know someone working in the mill to be accommodated there.

- There are resorts on the high end as well like the Hornbill resort and Bison river resort.
