Recharge your brain with the tranquility of nature
River Tern Lodge is a beautiful property located in Tarikere, Chikmagalur. Known for its tremendously gorgeous mountains and picturesque landscapes, this place is the perfect spot for wildlife enthusiasts. Surrounded by the magnificent Western Ghats, River Tern Lodge is an ideal place for relaxation, a few days away from the cacophony of the city. The stay offers a beautiful concoction of nature and wildlife, with several wild animals frequenting this amazing region.
How Did the Lodge Get Its Name?
River Tern Lodge has a curious name and I wondered why it does. However, little did I know that the location of the lodge would completely justify its name. The backwaters and islands in the vicinity attract numerous river terms during the mating season. The lodge is a brilliant place to spot these beautiful birds. River terms fly in and out of the place constantly during their breeding period.
A Paradise for Wildlife lovers
There is much more to this lodge than river terms. The Bhadra Tiger Reserve is located at a distance of about 4 km, a great place to encounter exquisite wild animals in their natural habitat. The experience is unique, thrilling, and quite enjoyable. A safari ride in a jeep may also lead to chance encounters with Tigers, Elephants, Gaur’s, leopards, Crocodiles, Boars, and Deer. Rare birds like brown fish Owl, Malabar pied Hornbills, white-bellied Sea Eagle, Serpent Eagle, Osprey, and crested hawk Eagle may also be spotted in this region.
An Experience to Cherish Forever
The camp also allows visitors to experience sports like kayaking, boating, and swimming. If you want to experience the jungle life at its best, a trip to River Tern Lodge is a must. The extraordinary jungle with its mysterious creatures and majestic mountains as the backdrop is an experience you will not want to miss out on. The rooms are very comfortable, the food is delicious and the services provided are extraordinary.
