Not too far from Mana Ranakpur is an unpaved road that leads to a beauty so pristine that it could leave you speechless. The largely unknown destination of this journey is a forest lodge known as Thandi Beri, literally translating to cool resting place. Usually used as a vantage point by forest officials for monitoring the fauna of the neighbouring woods, Thandi Beri is largely deserted by human traffic. It is essentially a great vantage point to soak in the untouched natural beauty of Ranakpur and its neighbouring regions.
Imagine yourself enjoying a peaceful picnic with your family and friends, overlooking the bounty of nature in Rajasthan. You could also imagine sharing a romantic meal for two with your loved one, in this secluded haven. Or practicing yoga and meditating in this wilderness for that matter. In their desire to provide the best, Mana Hotels has taken it upon itself to provide these facilities for you at Thandi Beri!
As necessary permits need to be gained from the forest officials and offsite arrangements need to be made, it is essential to book your excursion to this lodge in advance. A regular itinerary would be as follows:
6:00 p.m.: Arrive to welcome drinks & cold towels
6:30 p.m.: Enjoy sunset and views before dark
8:00 p.m.: Settle down on the veranda and enjoy drinks and starters from the Mana Kitchen
9:00 p.m.: Dinner is served with elements of the local cuisine
11:00 p.m.: Head back to the comfort of Mana Hotels, Ranakpur
Mana Hotels is committed towards maintaining the natural beauty of this place. It is imperative for the visitors to imbibe such an attidude as well.
