Kalipur Eco Village at Gorumara National Park
Viewed from a distance an Indian village may appear deceptively simple. A cluster of wood nailed walls, shaded by a few trees, set among a stretch of green fields, with a few people moving around, cattle lowing and birds singing – all present an image of harmonious simplicity. Indian city dwellers often refer nostalgically to “simple village life”. In actuality, Forest Village life is far from simple. Most villagers are characterized by a multiplicity of economic, caste, kinship, occupational, and even religious groups linked vertically within each settlement.
There is accommodation to suit every taste and budget, all operated by friends of Kalipur Forest Village with a wealth of local knowledge and the desire to make your stay comfortable and truly memorable. A fairy tale cottage with clear glass framed in natural finish bamboo, stands high the four traditional cottages with attached bath facility. One can have a feeling of ancient tree house used by our forefathers. The cottages are designed to match the nature and the balcony offer fantastic views of the pristine forest, grassland, and the lush green tea garden.
