Wrapped up another fun trip. This time it was Kohka on the periphery of Pench tiger reserve. No, we didn't spot a tiger, but we made lovely memories filled with laughter, scary tactics (Ankita Javle and I clearly scared the wildcats away), and authentic tribal food. @kohkawilderness spoilt us crazy with pumpkin and sesame papad, baigan bharta and moong vadi sabzi. I tasted mahua for the first time - with a pinch of salt, wedge of lime and a chilli it was potent to say the least. But the peg of the story is really something else, and I can't wait to write it. We talk about how backward rural in India is, but there is a group of youngsters working toward changing that in this region of Madhya Pradesh. Watch this space for more. #kohka, you surprised me.
Go green, get in touch with yourself, try your luck at spotting the elusive big cats, enjoy the colors of the many birds, eat organic food, meet the potters, watch the farmers till the land, run after hens like the #roosters, pet the goats...in short live the happy, village life at #KohkaWildernessCamp, near #PenchTiger Resrve
Kohka Wilderness Camp is a secluded resort on the periphery of Pench forest where birds chirp incessantly, butterflies flirt around endlessly and insects add a dramatic background score. Such a drastic change from our city lives where traffic is the DJ of a party that never ends. Shourabh Ghosh Ankita Javle Ambica Gulati
