Vanghat

Scroll

Set amidst breathtaking surroundings within the Ramganga River valley, Vanghat lodge is a perfect base from which to explore Corbett National Park. Home to a wide variety of birds, mammals, and other wildlife, Corbett was India’s first national park, given its status in 1936, primarily to conserve the Bengal tiger.

The lodge is composed of 9 cottages, 4 mud and thatched cottages, and 5 stone cottages. Each one is dedicated to a different group of wildlife, named and painted accordingly to give them unique identities. The mud cottages serve as natural air-conditioners, and the stone cottages are artistically made by local experts and set at a height that allows watching birds from your balcony.
