Bhitarkanika itself is a very authentic and popular destination, and when it comes to Habalikathi it can be a lifetime experience for you. You will remember its virginity and silence. This is pretty different than many other destinations in India. You think there is a beach where you are gonna stay alone. The area contains animals like deer’s, wild boar, porcupine, wild dog, jackle etc. This is also known for Olive Ridley turtle nesting ground. One can mesmerise this trip having a costal trek. I believe this is the place where you want to come back again and again.
Habalikhati Nature Camp
The only stay in Habalikhati is Habalikhati Nature Camp. You are the only guest who will be staying there in island along with some caretakers of the nature camp. After getting down from boat you have to walk approx. 3 km to reach your ultimate destination. You will be walking inside the lush mangrove forest and estuary. This will give you ultimate feelings which you will remember life long. Sun will kiss you from inside of the branches of trees around you. As soon as you reach nearby your destination you will hear the roar of the sea, finally when you reach to the coast, you will find your destination at one edge of your country, totally isolated, totally virgin. That feeling is incredible. There are total 4 cottages on the coast. Maximum 4 people with permission can stay in one cottage. By rules, every cottages is for two person staying, so if you come with another two or one person you will have to pay few more for the extra people. Fair enough ??
In charge of the nature camp will take care of that. You will get morning and evening tea and biscuits, Then breakfast Puri, Potato sabji and boiled egg, Then in lunch daal, 3 types of sabji, potato fries, fish curry etc which will make you full. Then at dinner they serve roti or rice as per your choice along with 2 sabjis and fish curry or egg. One thing I have noticed they don't follow such protocol in case of food, they provide as much as you can. They don't use any gas cylinder rather clay oven for cooking. So you can understand the taste of food will be different. I love the rice they serve. This is not at all fine rice but it is kind of thick and village style.
