Rainee Khola is a rivulet which runs through rocks and boulders snaking through dense forests. We built our nature resort in the middle of untouched nature on the banks of the Rainee Khola.
You would often find peacocks visiting your abode and a waterfall in the distance pouring thousands of gallons of water in the Raineekhola River. While staying here, you can go for local sightseeing trips or take part in adventure sports like Rock Climbing and Trekking. You can also enjoy Bird Watching and Angling with your friends during the day and do some barbecue under the starry sky.
