The Dhikala Forest Lodge is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the wilderness of the Corbett National Park in all its primitive glory. Operated under the administration of the Forest Department of the Indian Government, the Lodge is conveniently located bang in the middle of the jungle, making it an elite destination for wildlife enthusiasts from India and all over the world.
Skirting the edge of Patli Dun Valley, the Lodge is a historic building established over a hundred years ago by the British, as is evident in its architectural style. It has remained an attraction due to its position in the heart of the forest, with a diverse variety of wildlife found whilst enjoying the panoramic views of the surrounding valley, grasslands, and the Ramganga River.
Dhikala Chaur remains one the largest remaining grasslands in India, along with Phulai Chaur. This attracts diverse migratory birds, especially during the winter, making it a paradise for bird lovers and wildlife photographers as well. The rooms and hutments are surrounded by a solar wire fence, ensuring the safety of visitors at all times.
Most importantly, Dhikala is a chance to see the endemic Royal Bengal Tiger and Asiatic Elephant. Other animals that can be seen on the safari here include the spotted deer, Sambhar, elephants, fox, hyena, and barking deer among many others.
