I've stayed at the Eco-Tourism Complex in Hinauta. It has 6 tents and 4 cottages (tents are Rs 1000 a night and cottages Rs 2000 a night). Overall, was a comfortable enough stay and the best part is that safari permits are assured for anyone staying there. Panna is a beautiful park and sightings have been quite good too. I plan to go there more often in future. If anyone knows of any other stay options, especially near the Madla gate, please do add below.

Tanmay Keshav Hey, there's Camp Panna, it's close to Madla Gate (~6 km), next to Ken River and a nice place to stay. It's run by Abhinav Pandey and Shrey Goel, both of whom take a keen interest in wildlife

Vinay Patil You can also look up MPSTDC's Jungle Camp that's right outside the Madla Gate. Mr. Mehmood is your go-to person if you need help with anything there

We were lucky to get a pair of Spot-winged Starlings (Saroglossa spilopterus) visiting the blooming coral tree (Erythrina sps.), where scores of other birds (Orange-bellied Leafbirds, Red-vented Bulbuls, Chestnut-winged Starlings, Rose-ringed Parakeets, Common and Jungle Mynas and a single Maroon Oriole) were already feasting.
In the photo here is a male, while the female is much duller in colour.

Hi everyone, I’m looking for trekking partners to hike with. I’ve planned to set out for this route on Oct 6, 2017 from Kathmandu. I’m physically fit and have a bit experience with high pass trekking. Recently I’ve done Annapurna Circuit.
I’ve thought of completing this route in less than 2 weeks. If you are interested, we could make a team of max 4-5 persons and set for the Manaslu circuit.
The basic itinerary would be like this, but this can be modified as needed.
Day 1: Drive from Kathmandu (1400m) to Arughat (570m) and then Arughat to Soti Khola (730m) - (9 to 10 hours drive)
Day 2: Soti Khola – Khorlabeshi (930m) - Trek 8 hours
Day 3: Khorlabeshi – Jagat (1440m) - Trek 7 hours
Day 4: Jagat – Deng (1860m) - Trek 7 hours
Day 5: Deng – Namrung (2560m) - Trek 8 hours
Day 6: Namrung – Lho (3220m) – Samagaon (3390m) - Trek 8 hours
Day 7: Samagaon – Manaslu Base Camp (4800m) – Samagaon
Day 8: Samagaon – Samdo (3690m). - Trek 3 hours - Hike Northeast of Samdo to the Tibet Border and Gyala Bhanjyang Pass (4796m).
Day 9: Samdo – Dharamsala (4480m). - Trek 4 hours - If possible hike to the North of Dharamsala up the steep ridges toward the 5675 mtrs. high point of Fukang Danda.
Day 10: Dharamsala – Larkya La Pass (5135m) – Bhimthang (3700m) - Trek 9 hours
Day 11: Bhimthang – Tilje (2300m) – Dharapani (1860m) - Trek 8 hours
Day 12: Drive from Dharapani – Besisahar (760m) and then Besisahar to Kathmandu.

On a recent trip, we did safaris from the Dhrangadhra side. Stayed in Eco Tour Camp (Devjibhai's homestay) - much lesser visitors as compared to the Bajana side. Sightings were decent too. You may need to travel more to get there, but it may well be worth spending some time. Traveled Dec-15.

D P Paul Me too stayed at Khooba. Devjibhai happens to be one of the respected person for wildlife conservation in India

Madhab Dash @Lokesh - Lets talk with Tanmay before we finalize our stay options. We can try Dhrangadhra this time.
