Where to stay and eat:
Normally, it's considered to be a day trip and staying a night is not very practical but accommodation can be provided by small hotels( As mentioned above this place is still far away from tourist commercialization, one cannot expect to find luxury resort's and hotels around). If you are backpacking you can carry your tent and pitch them under those star.( Night stays are not allowed during monsoons)
There's lot of eateries available but make sure you find the right place. Punery misal pav and misal vada is the best options available. Also, one can eat at Chinese restaurants without burning a large hole in pocket.
