Chilapata is a charming beauty of jungle in the full moon night. Flaying of night grazing birds in moonlight create an unnatural feeling, where the heaven comes down to earth. The wonderful scene develops a magical moment when the herd of elephant roams in paddy field. Staying in Chilapata de-touches us from the urban life. During daytime, the eco friendly green atmosphere makes us stress less for jungle safari.
