Its true, these guys are not interested in you if you don't take their (over priced) boat stay...
The rooms are nice and clean, but the food is really hit and miss... I've had better Indian food in rural Ireland ..
The aviary is pretty ugly, not an attraction at all, it seems downright cruelto keep such a gregarious bird such as an emu on it's own with zero stimulation.
* Hint... Head down to the finishing point at about 4pm and start to barter, we got some good offers for four of us, people were offering to accommodate us all 4 of us on the boat that night (before the trip)h for an additional 2000 rupees including dinner and breakfast.
