Chukar is a two bedroom cottage, suitable for a family or a group of friends. It has two large in-suite washrooms, with running hot water generated through solar heating. Built entirely of stone, it is surrounded by trees & flowering plants and remains the coolest in summer. With a bonfire pit nearby and a long verandah perfect for putting your feet and relaxing in, it is a great unit to stay in as a group.
The cottage is named after the Chukar Partridge, a beautiful bird that is usually found at much higher altitudes like in Ladakh. Tanhau is probably the only place in the entire Corbett landscape where we are blessed to see them regularly in winter. If there is not too much disturbance around, the chukars love frequenting the area around this cottage – sometimes even roaming around in the verandah!
Though rustic from the outside, Chukar is well appointed inside. Our main collection of books is in Chukar, so you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice if you’re looking for something to read.
Choose to stay in Chukar if you are a family or a group of friends, it is the most comfortable cottage and the best place to relax.
