Dear Dheerajji,Anilbhai
probably there is no private accommodation other than GMVN at Jakholi.one double bed room rent is no less than 1200/- which is a beat costly for us.
please advise and opine if we stay at Tilwara at PWD rest house(two nights) instead of jakholi .Scenically Jakholi is better than tilwara-I know but we are thinking twice on the cost of lodging at jakholi.please share your opinion.we are also thinking and planning for whole day trip from tilwara to budakedar and jakholi with a small car.

regards
Debasish
