About the property:
Set amongst blissful wilderness, Vanghat’s remote location may only be accessed on foot by a 2km hike from where the road ends and a bamboo raft-borne river crossing making average fitness and a sense of adventure vital. The lodge is comprised of just 4 spacious thatched cottages amidst the wilderness. This makes sure that the impact on the local environment is kept to a minimum with just a fifth of the property built upon, maintaining the forest environment for our true hosts, the wildlife, and ensuring exclusivity and a personalised service for our guests.Their team is entirely local, possessing the fine traits of hill folk being polite, hardy and gracious hosts, whilst also knowing the surrounding landscape and wildlife better than anyone. Our activities focussing on walking safaris (a rarity in tiger country), birding, wildlife photography and angling are lead by some of the finest knowledgeable naturalists and guides of the area.
