It so happened that one of my close friend was visiting the city after a long time and we planned a little escapade to discuss our life woes..over a glass of wine..err coffee !! Scanning through a list of probable options we decided on a resort nearby called The Brahmaputra Jungle Resort in Sonapur, Guwahati, Assam. We had a crazy drive with my friend’s newly acquired biking skills (my heart was up my sleeves most of the time ) and finally reached the resort located on a beautiful hilltop.
With warm greeting we were escorted to the little huts/cottages meant for walk ins. After a drink and some chilled coke to beat the heat we ordered our food and went on a stroll. The place is beautifully kept with flowers and greenery all around, a small pond in the middle of the resort, a small swimming pool with costumes on request and a long and wide list of adventurous activities which included boating, rope-way, elephant ride, archery, shooting, angling, trekking etc on minimal fee. Sadly I could enjoy only a few of the activities as I was not appropriately dressed for adventure owing to my poor research before going there.
After a hearty meal, me unable to stop myself from the adventures went for elephant ride and boat ride in the tiny lake of the resort with the full tummy again..good lord !! It was almost nearing exit time…soothed myself with a virgin mojito (well,tats my all time fav) and finally bade good-bye with a view to take myself for a spin in some other part of the city some other time some other day !!
If you havent been there yet , make sure Brahmaputra jungle resort be your next weekend spot !!
- If you seek adventure don’t forget to ditch those stilettos for sneakers or sports shoes.
- You can stay over night if you wish!
- Make sure you go early to enjoy to the fullest.
