“"Fantastic Experience true valued Holiday"”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Return to the basics of nature/ hospitality/Village life.
IF you are a nature lover and your family or friends want to enjoy a day or two,this is the right choice I feel.We were warmly greeted by Mr. More and family.As 'SAKHA' the place is a family run tourism center we experienced a personal touch in hospitality yet a professionally managed center. Activities:There are lots of activities that we can do there especially village ride, jungle safari/trekking etc.2 days are just not sufficient to capture the nature and feel not to return to concrete jungle as you become a part of the More family and enjoy every moment.
Food:The food is best of its home made type(Tasty, healthy and hygienic) especially for Kids. My kid enjoyed the food we all loved it.
Thanks to More Family to make a place which is best to stay affordable to visit again and again.

Room Tip: "Room are good but Tents are best ask for place for beautiful river view"

It is sort of a dreamland if you come from a concrete jungle, a place where you can be at peace.

For our accommodation , we chose to try both: guest house and tent. The guesthouse had a big, clean room and a personal washroom. As for the tent, it was spacious, with a fan, vault, and windows too!! Sitting outside the tent we could dine alongside a bonfire. From that point, I saw the sun setting and eventually the moon rising up the other horizon with infinite stars coming in view.
(If you wish to go for the tent, make sure you reserve that from first.)

The food was great. We had something of our choice cooked, when there weren't any other guests. But to have a change, you must try the delicacies made by the locals there.

Its a perfect place for bird  watchers, I spent hours listening to their mellifluous songs.
En route, I saw no man crossing the road even once, but I did see peacocks do so!! Also spotted an eagle's nest, but missed the bird. That wish of mine too, was fulfilled while leaving Sakha Niwas. Seeing the magnificent bird, was worth a dekko!

We went for boating which was an amazing experience for us, because we were allowed to row the boat!:D We saw a lot of water birds there, waiting to catch hold of their prey. ( After you're done with boating and fishing, don't forget to take a dip in the pesticides free water. )

We also went on a trekking expedition, starting at dawn. The route was initially parallel to a valley and then uphill. We reached the spot and sat down, encapturing the picturesque scene. I could be at peace with myself there.

When we went on our farm visit, we saw a variety of fruits and vegetables cultivated there. We were lucky (because of the time of our visit) to get the opportunity to eat the fresh, sweet strawberries.

Be it with friends, family or colleagues, this is one place where you can have an unforgettably memorable time..a different experience all together!!

P.S. I didn't have the time, but you can also try the mud bath, to experience a traditional spa. ;)

We had made family stay over at Sakha Niwas last month for 2 nights. Our stay was very memorable and we found the perfect get-away from our fast everyday life.
Mr & Mrs More are very hospitable and the food though simple, is delicious. I was particularly concerned about food for my mother due to her frail health, but Mrs More very graciously took care of everything, and we never had any concerns.
The place is peaceful and the people are friendly. We stayed in the one of the cozy tents on the 1st night. The tents are very well maintained and comfortable. the second night was in one of the rooms which are clean and well kept.
The venue it self is very beautiful surrounded by mountains and set on the banks of a river. While over there we went for boating, trekking and for the farm visit. We spotted numerous beautiful birds- a kingfisher, a beautiful blue bird in a bright shiny coat, and another green one with a beautiful crown along with many others with their pulchritudinous colors and melodious voices.
I felt that there wasn't a lot to do, which was great for us, but might not be for everyone. This might change soon, since the hosts have grand plans for the place.
All in all, I found the place peaceful, quite and refreshing!

Room Tip: For the birdwatchers, carry a high optical zoom camera.

This was one of the best trip I had with my team. We were around 40 in a group, but faced no difficulty in logding, fooding or enjoying activities their to the most.

As the trip was planned by me, therefore I was very much concerned about the team enjoyment :P
But finally after the trip all were having the positive reviews and were very much satisfied with Sakha Niwas and that was a big achievement for me as an organizer :D

We enjoyed many team activites there like Musical chair, DJ dance, Individaul performances, Cricket (where my team won :P) and Trek in the morning, Balloon games etc.
They have also arranged Tour Operators for Corporate team activities. One was Anuj and other I don't remember the name. They made us played many games which allows all of us to interact with each other and that was the best part. They arranged ring game, ball game, mines game and rope game which were very good as I was able to remember the name of everyone after all these activities.
We were very much exhausted after cricket and trekkking, but after tasty breakfast and Tour operators activites we were again in form with much more enthusiasm.

About the food provided by Sakha Niwas, it was much more tasty then what Mrs. Uma has told. From Mutter Paneer to Rajma to Dal to Bhakri to chicken To Poha to Tea :D....we enjoyed each and every thing. Thanks to Mrs. Uma for keeping that promise.

Meanwhile, for the whole trip Mr. Vijay was with us taking shots of our natural pose and guiding us properly for each event.
Because of them only I and my fellow mates were able to enjoy with our 3 Managers like a friends or competitors, which can never be possible in our office bay.

Thanks To Sakha Niwas (Mr. Vijay & Mrs. Uma with their awesome team) for arranging such a memorable outing.

I had a great time at Sakha Niwas Agro Tourism. This place is quiet in the mountain, but there are many things to do (little trekking, swimming,...) and you can learn a lot about local persons' life. Vijay and Uma are really nice people who make you feel confortable.
Food is very good, fresh.
Go and enjoy !!
