Situated in the midst of the Western Ghats of Chikmagalur district in Karnataka, surrounded by the lofty hill ranges of Babubudangiri. The River Tern Lodge is a perfect blend of nature and wildlife. The lodge gets its name from the congregation of thousands of River Terns during their breeding on a nearby island. Indeed a spectacular sight to behold! You can get mesmerized by observing their preening, feeding, cackling and many interesting antics. It is located on a hillock, at the edge of the picturesque Bhadra River, near Lakkavalli, adjoining the northern boundaries of the Bhadra Tiger Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary. Soft waves of backwaters of the river lash the edge periodically, harmonizing the sounds of nature, to put you in a perfect state of bliss. The River Tern Lodge is the ideal spot to get acquainted with nature in its serene beauty.
