Please advise us in advance if you have any specific dietary needs or restrictions and we will try our best to accommodate any requests such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc. Our chef receives high praise for his cooking.
DO YOU PROVIDE ACCOMMODATION IF I HAVE A DRIVER?
We do not provide accommodation for drivers. However, we can provide suggestions for guesthouses for them to stay in. Local accommodation costs around Rs. 1500 per night and includes room and board at a clean and comfortable guest house. You may park your car at our car park. It is off road and away from traffic.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CAMP?
For river and water based activities you should bring a pair of water shoes, or sports sandals (Teva, Reef, Keen etc) with an ankle strap, or a pair of trainers/sneakers. We do not take anyone out on the river without adequate footwear. Flips flops/slippers are not adequate footwear on any of our activities, but are great for relaxing at camp.
A flashlight or head torch
For the river we suggest wearing quick dry shorts and t-shirts – since we are located in a
village please do not wear overly revealing clothes on activities
Waterproof camera – even waterproof cameras can get damaged, so we recommend you purchase one of our dry bags or pouches for extra protection
For those who wear glasses a glasses strap is a good idea
Hat with a visor for sun protection
Several plastic bags to keep wet clothes separate in luggage
SHOULD I TIP?
We do not include service charge in our rates as we believe in leaving tipping to the discretion of our guests. However we do hope that if you have enjoyed your stay and feel our staff have looked after you well that you leave a tip. There is a tip box in the Long House, and tips are divided equally between all the staff, so everyone, from the guides to the kitchen staff, receive an equal share. Our staff earn a significant portion of their pay through tipping, so it is greatly appreciated. As a guideline we recommend leaving 10% of the cost of your stay.
WHAT ARE YOUR BATHROOM FACILITIES LIKE?
We do not have en suite bathroom facilities, but our bathroom block is separated into male and female facilities. We do have hot water showers but we ask that showering is kept to a minimum time in order to conserve energy and be kind to the environment. Our bathrooms are clean and are modern and western. The water is safe for brushing teeth but do not drink the water, it is not treated. A refreshing alternative to a shower is a river bath – please inform a member of staff if you wish to bathe in the river, and where possible it is better to bring biodegradable products. We do not provide any toiletries for guests, however we do provide towels which you can use for river bathing.
DO I NEED TO BRING CASH?
We don't have credit card facilities at Borderlands And there is no ATM machine near by, so please do bring enough cash with you.
WHAT ARE YOUR TENTS LIKE?
All our tents have twin beds and have electricity inside and outside the tents. Each tent has a thatched roof and a terrace from where you can sit and relax and enjoy the river and the surrounding mountains. There is no need to bring towels as you will be provided with one during your stay. The tents have power points to charge electrical items such as laptops, phones and cameras. Please ensure that you keep the inside fly sheet of your tent closed at all times, as this will help prevent any unwanted wildlife visiting. For your comfort we ask that you keep shoes outside of the tents so that the tents are kept as clean as possible. There is no smoking inside the tents but you can smoke on your terrace if you wish.
