A weekend retreat in the midst of Jungle away from the city at Corbett Wild Iris Spa & Resort, Ramnagar.

The resort is located near village Kyari Kham in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand. We had a rejuvenating experience in the swimming pool, and enjoyed our buffets at restaurant facility. It was pleasure of discovering true nature with its rich nature surrounding ambiance with our local walks around the village and the jungle.

Exploring a rich jungle of the reservoir with all the rare species of reptiles and birds near our resort was a great adventure and beautiful birds voices were meditative to the ears and mind. This place is a dream destination for the bird watchers and wild lovers, and we had a perfect experience of  Jungle.
