Description

Group trip
4 days 3 nights
In the northern fringes of the famed Corbett Tiger Reserve on the banks of the Ramganga Reserve, the wildlife-rich community forests near Vanghat Lodge offer the finest walking safari experiences in the western Himalayan foothills. Expert local lodge guides also play the role of fine trackers and bird experts to make your journey even more exceptional with their expertise. Riverine forests along the Ramganga also offers sightings of otters, ghoral, and mountain goats as well as exotic deers. About 50 species of birds can be spotted, even raptors like Palla's Fish Eagle and the Mountain Hawk Eagle. Tigers, leopards, and elephants are some other big animals you can expect to spot, just to name a few.

Sat amongst the blissful wilderness, Vanghat's remote location can only be accessed on foot by a 2km hike from where the road ends and includes a bamboo raft-borne river crossing, so participants of Vanghat's trails must be of an average fitness level with a sense of adventure. However, this 100% plastic-free spot in the middle of the forest is a paradise for nature lovers who want to meet local wildlife experts and get closer to what the Corbett National Park has to offer.
