  • Misleading Bird Sanctuary at Gk's Riverview Homest

    by

    The owner George has no knowledge of birds. He is not affiliated with any ornithologist group or a college. He has no background when it comes to knowing the birds genius, habitats, behaviors, what they eat, when they migrate, are they social. There are no bird counts in the area. George does nothing when it comes to the protection of birds or wildlife in the area. The directions to the homestay are not accurate or clear. The people that live in the area are unaware that the house is a homestay and others that live in the surrounding community are clueless. George has a contempt of people who are not Christian. So if you are a Hindu, Muslim or Buddhist he will be extremely nasty to you. The food is unhealthy, it is mainly based on salt and sugar. The family members have diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity. George tells people how his food is so healthy, how the oil is so expensive and that his crops are grown on his land. The land is sprayed with pesticides and it is not organic. People in the area burn their wastes and dogs in the area bark constantly. It is not peaceful. The homestay is overpriced at $3,000 rupees, there are no stores around to purchase food. The homestay is located on roads that belong in the stone age. The roads are dusty and horrible. There is no hot water or airconditioning for the price people pay for the room.

    Unique Quality: I don't recommend anyone to go to this hotel, it is in the middle of nowhere in the rice paddies. Go to a place where there are educated people that have affiliations with birds.
