Diwali celebrations now-a-days, are more associated with air and noise pollution, rather than their traditional significance. With an attempt to bring back the true spirit of Diwali, i.e. illumination of the inner self, the Hideaway River Lodge at the Corbett National Park, a unit of Leisure Hotels Ltd., offers you the perfect opportunity to celebrate the festival of lights in the calm and serene lap of Mother Nature, sans the smoke and noise. So if you are planning to celebrate an Eco-Diwali this year, and to do your bit for nature, Hideaway River Lodge is the perfect place to be. Spread over an area of 10 acres, on the banks of Ramganga River, Hideaway River Lodge is a cluster of luxury tents protected by solar fencing. It is an effort to provide a genuine wilderness experience in Corbett National Park. Its location makes Hideaway River Lodge an ideal getaway for those who want to be in close proximity to one of the natural wonders of the world, lush sub-tropical forests and the bountiful flora & avifauna. Entry to the lodge is through the Durgadevi Gate. The drive to the Lodge is an interesting one, through dense Sal forests. The safaris at Hideaway River Lodge are organized by both Jeep & Elephant. The sojourn will also provide an opportunity to visit the highest point in Corbett National Park by jeep or visit the nearby CHAURS for game viewing on Elephant Back. One of the most interesting facts about this resort is that unlike other luxury resorts, Hideaway River Lodge provides accommodation in thatched-roof Swiss-cottage-tents with attached toilet and bath. So, the guest not only has a luxurious stay, but also enjoys a close bond with nature during the stay. The Bird Life in this wilderness is also very rich with more than 600 varieties. Every flower truly enjoys the air that it breathes. The morning sun sets the hills on fire in rich vibrant hues. The rough rocky terrain and the land formations are unbelievable. The reserve truly offers a moving tribute to the nature lover and the photographer of the wild.
