The main lodge is titled the ‘Baithak’, which is the casual gathering and sitting area for guests. The construction of the Baithak is motivated by the traditional mud houses that are commonly found around Central India. It is a great spot to interact with naturalists, wildlife lovers and guests over a refreshing cup of tea and snacks, or dinner. The Baithak also houses the Monsoon Forest Art Gallery and Library, a fantastic collection of tribal workmanship, wildlife books, photography and other collectibles. Earth walls and rooftops and tiles from the 1930’s, are just some of the aspects of the local architecture.
