We read about the Eco Lodge in our guide book and jumped out of the train in Ohiya, took a Tuktuk which drove further and further away from civilization. Due to the fog we didn't really see where we are, only when the fog cleared we saw the awesome view from the rooms. Due to our off-season trip we didn't make a reservation and were lucky to be the only guests in the Eco Lodge.
Staff was welcoming, friendly and provided us with great food. Due to the further travel plans we were only able to stay one night, but would have liked to stay longer.
Highly recommended, but probably necessary to book ahead when not traveling in the off-season.
