About Wild Mahseer

Located within the biodiverse haven of the Eastern Himalayan Botanical Ark, Wild Mahseer is a beautiful heritage stay. A reflection of the lifestyle of colonial tea planters, 

Wild Mahseer is a collection of plantation bungalows set in 22 acres lush with vegetation, old wand wide canopied trees, well maintained lawns, drive ways, bamboo thickets and the Addabarie tea estate. Though the winter months are the best season to visit Balipara, monsoons are also a special time and present a misty and magical image of the estate. 

On the North bank of the Brahmaputra River in the district of Sonitpur, twenty minutes from the ancient city of Tezpur, Wild Mahseer named after the well known game fish, is set within the Balipara division of Addabarie Tea Estate which was established by the British Assam Tea Company in 1864. Five independent bungalows totaling to 14 double bedrooms and suites with ensuite bathrooms, they are names after varieties of tea like Silver Tips, Golden Tips, Second flush, Ambrosia and the Heritage Bungalow.  Silver Tips has three bedrooms and was originally Doctor Sahib’s Bungalow while Golden Tips which was the accountant's bungalow has two bedroom, Second Flush was the visiting agents office and now houses four spacious bedrooms.   Ambrosia has two large bedrooms while the iconic Wild Mahseer Heritage Bungalow with three bedrooms was the visiting agent’s Bungalow. 

A lovely conservatory which is the dining pavilion and a conference room is a part of the complex. The cuisine at Wild Mahseer is a mix of Anglo Indian, Assamese and North Indian cuisines. Informal but hand-on cooking classes are organised in the bungalow kitchen with the help of the chefs on the estate. 

Wild Mahseer offers several excursions and activities which make it an ideal three to four night destination. Nameri National Park is just over thirty minutes while Khaziranga is a two hours drive. Guest especially those with children can participate in the activities of Naturenomics lead by local botanists is a very enriching experience. Tea Tours, cooking classes, festivals, bird watching, community interactions are some of the signature activities organised by the team at Wild Mahseer. 

Wild Mahseer is a part of the The Balipara Foundation which is set up as a conservation incubator. Their community focused approach to conservation is centered around social mobility and long-term sustainability.

Some of their efforts include Habitat Mapping, Planning & Restoration, Research, Innovation & Application and Policy Advocacy, Investment & Publication.
