The lodge is a unique and authentic community project designed to give travellers a privileged insight into Sundarban’s village life including their fishing and farming techniques. Accommodation is in ethic village cottages made from locally available materials. Dining is Bengali style in a simple thatched-covered dining room that also hosts other activities including a village hall and village plays.
