Pashan Garh

Pashan Garh

Panna National Park
, Madhya Pradesh
, India

Pashan Garh (which translates to ‘stone fortress’) has been built at the very top of a small hill in 200 acres of wilderness adjoining the Panna Tiger Reserve with far-reaching views of the dense tiger forests and a large watering hole that is the regular haunt of numerous big cats and antelopes. The lodge’s large rough stone cottages with handcrafted contemporary furniture and silk and linen furnishings draw their inspiration from the dry-packed stone houses of the region. The guest areas celebrate the Haveli design with spacious central courtyards and a stone deck overlooking the expanse of the forest down a gentle slope. A lookout tower serves as the perfect spot to indulge in some birdwatching in the day and stargazing at night. A strong motif throughout the lodge is that of the crocodile, which inhabits the Ken River.
