    Nestled in the Western Ghats the River tern lodge gets its name from the nearby island that attracts hundreds of river terns during the breeding season. It is located on a hillock on the edge of the Bhadra reservoir, near Lakkavali: a stones throw away from the northern boundary of the Bhadra Tiger Reserve, in the Chikmaglur district. Chikmaglur was once a princess dowry – and still holds the charms of a place that a kings favourite daughter once took as her dowry. Amongst all this, is a perfect place to form a whole new bond with nature
