River Tern resorts is one of the Chain Resorts of Jungle Lodges in Karnataka. I have visited most of the resorts of Jungle Lodges and this indeed is very good one compared to all the other resort they maintained. This is close to the Bhardavathi dam and resort is located behind the dam this gives best view of the river. We visited here in first week of December 2011.
The resorts is quite peaceful and calm. The food is good. The rooms are clean and balcony has good view of the river. Do not miss to get up early in the morning around 5 AM to see Moon. Its wonderful picturesque view of water and the moon.
We did not except much from safari. But it was not at all disappointing when we saw Leopard! Yes the Leopard , it was spellbound experience to witness the leopard.
They also take you for the boating where you can view lots birds. They provide binoculars to watch. They also have other sports which one can try out.
Overall it was good experience leaving behind wonderful memory of the LEOPARD.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in the Western Ghats the River tern lodge gets its name from the nearby island that attracts hundreds of river terns during the breeding season. It is located on a hillock on the edge of the Bhadra reservoir, near Lakkavali: a stone's throw away from the northern boundary of the Bhadra Tiger Reserve, in the Chikmaglur district. Chikmaglur was once a princess' dowry - and still holds the charms of a place that a king's favourite daughter once took as her dowry. Amongst all this, is a perfect place to form a whole new bond with nature. ... more less
