Congratulations to Dhole’s Den on achieving Outstanding PUG rating!

18 December 2017

Borrowing its name from the Asiatic wild dogs also known as dholes, this lodge is also frequented by elephant herds and big cats from the bordering Bandipur Tiger Reserve. Guests can enjoy the panoramic and unhindered views of the jungles leading to the blue Nilgiri Mountains beyond from their five spacious rooms, which have been furnished with locally sourced fabric and materials. Dhole’s Den offers a library, conservation-based film screenings, camping, meditation area, nature walks, bird safaris, visits to local village communities, and an observation machaan within the lodge grounds. North Indian, South Indian, Chinese and Continental meals are cooked using locally grown organic vegetables and herbs from the lodge’s kitchen garden. Since its last certification in 2014, the lodge measures its energy and water consumption, segregates and properly disposes 100% of its waste, has switched to LED lighting and draws all its power (except for the water pump) from renewable sources such as solar and wind. Just some aspects of operation, which have earned Dhole’s Den an Outstanding PUG Eco-rating.
