It was a fantastic tour right from the start. I am surprised that myjungletrip could attend to the slightest detail without any compromise. The tours have been nicely laid out and one can choose as per taste and budget.

Dukpas Hut is a small hut in the height of 2600 feet with a view of Historical Buxa fort made our Trekking programme a grand. Throughout our Trekking days (Seven days) the service of Dukpas hut was great, though the hut is located on such a remote place where electricity and motorable road connectivity is nil. They serve us good & tasty meals even while we were on trek.

I am not an avid traveler but thought of giving it a shot after browsing the internet and finally zeroing on myjungletrip. What I liked about them was their style of planning the trips and giving so many convenient choices for newbies like me.

I have never experienced nature from close but when I came across myjungletrip, I thought of giving it a try. And boy, it was worth every penny. Everything from flight tickets to resort booking to the tours was streamlined to perfection.
