For Rs.1300/-, you’ll be getting 4 times food and stay. Lunch and dinner were good enough. In the evening if you order some chicken (extra cost) then they will arrange it with prior notice. Be cautious about this as they will give one large plate of chicken (Sal Chicken) and claim it as 1 kg chicken.
The tent was clean to stay in. They’ve 3 shared washrooms and those were not fully cleaned. When nearly 40 people use them, they need to be cleaned a few times a day and that was missing.
