The Wild Mahseer Lodge, Assam


If you want to experience the romance of the famed tea-life during the British Raj, then all you have to do is to take a trip to the Wild Mahseer Lodge, located on 22 acres of certified organic land right in the midst of Balipara tea estate in Assam. It’s a 20-minute drive from Tezpur airport. The resort has four independent bungalows with three or four suites each. It has all the romance of Victorian architecture – spacious rooms, elegantly furnished with a cheerful log fire and a stream lapping nearby. The amenities, however, are modern with an eye on the luxury traveler.

The B M Khaitan-owned McLeod Russel India and the K K Birla group lead the line-up of estate-studded companies planning to develop properties suitable for tourism.

GETTING THERE: The best way to get to these hotspots is to catch a flight to the nearest cities

Casting for Gold

The thrill of the big Mahseer, hooked in heavy water, has an electric joy ... there is nothing quite likes it: and once experienced, it is imprinted forever on the tablets of memory. " Forty-seven years later too these words from A.S.J. MacDonald's Circumventing the Mahseer hold good, though the number of people who can boast of reeling one in is fast dwindling. For the uninitiated, the Mahseer, only found in India, is renowned as the hardest fighting fish on the planet and so is hailed as the ultimate fishing experience for any freshwater angler.
