A scenic wildlife resort in Assam is turning out to be the favourite destination for burnt out executives of leading private and public sectors companies// .
With performance being the latest mantra, several firms are making their key workforce take a break to de-stress themselves, virtually on the lap of the eastern Himalayas. And the Potasali Eco Camp, located near the 200 sq km Nameri National Park, about 220 km north from here, is one of the hotspots for these behavioural anti-stress approaches.
"This is a new thing for us to find teams of company executives booking the resort for a couple of days. The entire stay here is aimed at de-stressing their personnel by way of various games, pep talks, and adventure," Ranesh Roy, joint director of the Potasali Eco Camp, a resort-cum-wildlife conservation group in Nameri, told IANS.
In recent weeks, executives of Assam's Numaligarh Refinery and AREVA T&D Ltd, a power transmission and distribution consultancy firm, enjoyed exhaustive anti-stress drill.
Relaxation apart, the stay at Potasali could be a delight to any wildlife enthusiast.
Potasali is a small resort with the sparkling Jia Bhoroli, a tributary of the Brahmaputra, meandering its way by the side of the eco camp. The river is home to the prized game fish of the Indian sub-continent, the Golden Mahaseer.
The Eco Camp has thatched cottages raised on bamboo stilts, besides jungle tents with sleeping bags - a delight for any adventurous tourists.
Across the Jia Bhoroli is the Nameri National Park, which is also a tiger reserve.
And by dusk the mood at the resort at Potasali is one of camaraderie with tourists joining in a lively song and dance session with a bonfire adding to the fun filled atmosphere.
A sumptuous dinner with cuisines that cater to all kinds of palates is another highpoint of this eco-camp.
