About Vanghat

A part of the larger Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) Kalagarh Tiger Reserve (Division) marks a prominent buffer zone forest stretching along the north to east of the reserve and lies safe in the valley created around the Ramganga river. Here is Vanghat, far away from the gates of Corbett yet in the same Sal dominated Himalayan foothill forest. Once an exquisite destination of Tiger Tops who created fishing preserves in the forests here, Vanghat carries forth the intense wildlife focus that was central to all Tiger Tops experiences. Beginning with the access which is by foot after you park at the road head about 30 Kms from Ramnagar on the Garhwal route (NH 121), over the Ramganga on a bridge once and floating out on a raft on the second stretch, in between is a two-kilometre trek - Vanghat takes you deep into the forest for an experience of living right where nature is untouched and thriving. 

Once off the raft, a small man-made bridge takes you across another stream and the banks, over smoothened rocks through a trail and into the sanctuary carefully held in reverence by Sumantha and his team at Vanghat. The eight-acre estate guarded at the river entrance by two ‘Giant Silk Cotton trees’ (Bombax ceiba) part of a sacred grove revered as living deities. Amidst thickets of fruiting trees, undergrowth and elephant grass, cleared here and there to accommodate the 4 thatched cottages and three cottages made in the typical stone masonry style, typical to the lodges of yore. Accommodation is simple, rustic and warm with ensuite bathrooms and hotwater in buckets. The central large Machan where you will dine together among wildlife lovers and friends of the forest, serves simple Indian home cooked food – fresh, tasty and healthy.

Vanghat invites you to enjoy and live in and around the forest and explore every trail of the community forest around the lodge on foot. Every season has a different landscape to offer and various birds and wild animals to encounter. If campfire nights, forest living and complete immersion in the wild is your vacation ideal, Vanghat will be your choice. For children there are ample opportunities to learn from Sumantha and his team of naturalists about the wonders of the natural world.
