Mountain Quail Lodge is a beautiful property - the forests of Pangot that surround the place are the thickest jungle I've seen in these parts. The rooms were cosy and comfortable, and one of our rooms even had a loft bed! The bathrooms were spotless, and the food above par. Really, I couldn't rave about the place enough!
Our hosts, Sid and Bhavna, too, were warm and welcoming. They took us on a few hikes around the area and regaled us with local anecdotes. I found them to be fun and knowledgeable, and I hope to go back there many times.
