Riverine Woods


Riverine Woods Resort in Jim Corbett, earlier known as Van Ghat River Lodge was established in 2003. A fishing and wildlife conservation lodge was set up on the bank of the Ramganga River near the Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve in Uttaranchal, Northern India.

The resort, fully aware of its surroundings and responsibilities to the community, has provided employment opportunities for a number of local people, and through this arrangement, has established some of the best managed Mahseer fishing beats in the state. As a direct consequence of the improved fish stocks, the surrounding ecosystem has dramatically improved, with the return of otters and turtles – creatures which have not been seen for some years.

The resort officially opened in November 2005, comprises of five cottages of locally sourced materials, and is able to provide a comprehensive outdoor orientated experience for visitors, whilst at the same time offering the opportunity to find complete tranquillity and seclusion.

The Lodge

The cottages are all constructed from local materials – stone, mud and thatch – and are designed to compliment the surrounding area. There are Western style flushing toilets, with running cold and hot water.

All the cottages have been built to allow a throughput of breeze throughout the day. The lodge has been designed to provide a comfortable, welcoming and traditional environment to stay.
Food is prepared at the camp by our team on site, and consists of hygienic and wholesome food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided as part of the package, and would consist of Indian, Chinese and European cuisine. Tea and coffee are provided throughout the day. Meals are served in the dining room and sundowner drinks are available in the roundhouse near the river.
