One of the most remote wildlife lodges in Northern Indian forests, Vanghat is an internationally-acclaimed eco-lodge located on a secluded bank of the Western Ramganga River deep inside Kalagarh Tiger Reserve division of the Corbett Tiger Reserve.

Vanghat welcomes true nature and wildlife enthusiasts and photographers. However, one needs to bear in mind that our eco-lodge is not a place for a typical Club Med-type picnic holiday.

Its location, accessible only by a 1.8km cross-country hike or by 4x4 and then a raft over the Ramganga River, and its limited indigenous stone and mud constructions and complete involvement with the community, makes Vanghat the perfect example of sustainability. Add to this our food sourcing and preparation, simple on-foot activities so closely linked to nature, and the quality of local naturalists, we have created a forest haven and a low-carbon footprint experience.

Sustainable tourism must protect the environment from negative impacts, and the concept we have nurtured not only does this but also provides guests with the ultimate immersive wildlife experience.
Vanghat lodge is a wilderness paradise unlike anything else to be found around Jim Corbett National Park.

How To Reach

From the nearest road, Vanghat is a 2km walk across a bridge and down the Ramganga valley, through a small village before the river needs to be crossed once more, this time on a bamboo raft. From here it is a short walk to the lodge itself. Average fitness is essential and ideally luggage should be light enough to be easily portable by our staff.

By Air
For those arriving into Indira Gandhi International Airport we can book a private pick up and transfer directly to Vanghat (a 300km drive), or via an overnight stay in Delhi or near Ramnagar, depending on the time of your flight's arrival.

By Road
For those arriving in there own vehicle, we have secure parking available at the point from which the journey to the lodge is begun on foot near Marchula. Driving from Delhi usually takes between 5 and 7 hours.

By Train
The nearest railway station to Vangat is Ramnagar. We can arrange for guests to be picked up from here and driven to Vanghat, which takes approximately 1 to 2 hours. Alternatively, we can book guests into accommodation near to Ramnagar before the onward journey to Vangat the following morning, depending on the train's arrival time. A train from Delhi usually takes between 5 and 6 hours.
For those unfamiliar with the public transport of India, it is a good idea to bring ear plugs and an eye mask if you are travelling overnight. We would also suggest wearing discreet and non-revealing clothing, particularly for women. A good sense of patience will also help! Please make sure you are contactable in case there is a delay.
