Trip Overview

Witness one of the most wild and prolific Mahseer & Goonch fisheries. Pursue what we call a ‘Grand Slam’ experience – witness wild Asiatic elephants, a glimpse of the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger, and capture the Golden Mahseer of your dreams – close to India’s oldest national park.

The abundant waters of the western Ramganga River lend itself to some of the best sight fishing for the legendary, Golden Himalayan Mahseer. With an opportunity to witness India’s Himalayan outback, its diverse eco-system - wildlife, birds and incredible aquatic & semi aquatic life.

Your angling adventure is complimented by a lodge facility and the warm hospitality of our friendly and experienced local staff. The lodge overlooks the river, allowing you to view a stunning section of the western Ramganga valley, with a backdrop of spectacular forested sub-Himalayan scenery. Experience this well-preserved and carefully managed stretch of river along with your guides; learning the exciting techniques of perusing this unique and mystical fishery. End each day’s fishing enjoying familiar amenities in a remote part of the forest and feel pampered by a warm welcome by your hosts, appetizing meals and refreshing hot baths.

Nestled on a small hill, overlooking a grand panorama that stretches far into the game-rich valley on either sides; this is one of the most ideally located lodges in India’s most diverse eco-system. With open view sitting areas, thatched roofs, and elegant interiors, this charming lodge offers an intimate jungle experience with opportunities of Himalayan adventure & discovering the surrounding forests.
