“I should start my review with the hospitality of Mr. Sanjog, the owner of Riverside Dwelling. This person has never shied away from providing the best of the services, right from getting my tea and guava served on the banks of the river as I was birding, to helping me in carrying my tripod. Such services you can never expect from the best of the hotels or resorts. The food here is awesome. The homestay is located at a very serene place on the banks of the river Rangbhang. The reason I came here is to do some birding, and I can confidently say to all birders that you will not leave this place disappointed. This place has plenty of birds as it is in the midst of tea gardens and beside the river. Thanks to Mr. Sanjog and his wife for making my stay memorable. Hope to visit you again.”
