We spent 2 nights here but could easily have spent 2 weeks. This stay was like a home stay, as we had the place to ourselves. The staff were friendly, warm, happy and helpful and incredibily proud of their place. The food was excellent, the room was spacious, clean and comfortable and we had a breathtaking view from the balcony. Our principal reason for staying here was to see the rich birdlife of the area and we achieved this with the help of our local guide - Mahesh Rajpoot, who was extremely knowledgeable. Even the birds were stunning! The real icing on the cake though was the lack of WiFi because that allowed you to just be there and enjoy the place without distractions.
Good Birding destination

We stayed at Jungle Lore for 2 nights this month. It's a great lodge, with good rooms, excellent team and good food. The birding is excellent. Maheesh, the onsite ornithologist is a star. It's only a few miles from Nainital (so a break from the busy lake) and it's on the route to Corbett National Park.
An enriching experience!!!

Jungle Lore Birding Lodge can be considered a pioneer in eco-tourism as its efforts to protect the natural environs are evident in every nook and corner of this property. It is indeed a jungle lodge meant to optimise your birding experience. Sadly, we stayed here only for one night (March 3, 2019) on our way to Chaukori and Munsyari. The lodge has four cottages, out of which two have an attic (Cheer & Marten). We stayed in the Marten cottage, which is at the farthest corner of the property. You need to go down a bit to reach the cottage. However, the whole property has a very old world and rustic charm to it, which immediately makes you feel at home. It is manned by a team of hardworking and efficient staff members, who will make every effort to make your stay comfortable. The property is designed and decorated to give complete privacy to passionate birders as there is also a bird-hide.
The dining hall of the Lodge is the cosiest part of the property and provides the perfect ambience for guests to interact and share their stories around the fireplace on a chilly winter evening. The food served here was wholesome and extremely delicious, prepared with fresh local produce. The owner (Mr. Mohit) gives personal attention to the needs of the guests. On his instructions, the dinner was on the house (which we found out next day at the time of bill settlement). It was such a sweet gesture on his part, so rare these days. We will definitely come back here to once again soak in its unparalleled charm.
Go there to experience unspoilt nature! not many places like this anymore!

we went on a short holiday to Pangot. the drive from Gurgaon was uneventful expect the traffic ( expected in summer , going towards the beckoning hills ) at some places. After an 8 hour drive , we were welcomed by a small quaint jungle lodge/homestay. once you enter the small gates, you are greeted with wondrous views of the steeping hills, thick jungle and lovely looking cottages. this place is pure bliss. many many local bird greet you with constant chirping. Trees are laden with apricots , and many more local fruits and berries. the food prepared by chef is to awesome! due to 100% clean air and fab weather ( even now, when delhi is burning at 46degrees) you feel rejuvenated every extra second you spend at this place.
In your cottages, there are old magazines from 1980-90 and early 2000 . hundreds of birding books. i loved glancing thru them , and reliving the school days.
the caretakers and very thoughful and resourceful . full marks to them on service and attention to detail.
go there guys , such places are very few in India , you will love it.
