And after travelling so much , among the countless things I can write against the subject title , following three top my list :1.Liberation – Ah ! no more office for the time being at least ,what a feeling ! The moment you start planning for a travel , you get that relaxed feeling while experiencing the excitement at the very same time due to an adrenalin rush resulting from thoughts of what all you gonna do during the travel episode .At the very onset hence, Travel gets you all charged up.2.Understanding Human emotions better – That’s probably the foremost reason which pulls me to travel so frequently. I mean its just so wonderful to know that irrespective of which geographical part of the world we stay in , we all are more or less the same as far as emotions go.Those delightful feelings of love , friendship , sharing & supporting along with some unappealing ones like anger etc. are so universal. Different languages,different cultures,different food yet that polite human touch just seems to work everywhere & every single time . Eventually, all this makes you smarter in handling Human emotions and brings to fore your very own human side.3.Expanding the Horizons – During travelling, you meet so many people and witness so many new things which otherwise have been alien to you so far.And in the process , you end up picking some new interests. I , for example, got drawn to Spirituality thanks to many things which I witnessed during travel to various places. Similarly,some people pick up books while others just get their brand new DSLRs to quench their newly found thirst for photography.Besides, your thought process towards people,towards various things gets a much required shaking thereby enabling you to understand everything in a better & fairer way .Considering everything, Travelling does makes you richer beyond words .Drop your best 3 list for what good travelling does in the comments below or at https://www.facebook.com/Passport.Souls/ !Namaste & take care !!
Fill your pockets with tantalizing experiences at the playgrounds of the Royal Bengal Tiger. The kingdom of this Indian jungle royalty has many exotic species to boast.

06:00 am, 12 Nov, 2017Wake up early in the morning if you want to visit Jim Corbett national park. Authority who allows you to get the ride into the national park recommends to visit the jungle early in the morning as there is very small slots and limited number of vehicles are allowed in a day.It was around 6:00 am in the morning. Everyone was ready to get the thrill. We took the ride of jungle jeep safari.Take a look in below video.
Around 08:00, we managed to reach our hotel. we have booked our hotel for whole group. we had divided large group into small groups for each room.
I visited the Jim Corbett National Park in the month of June 2017, This beautiful park is spread across 1250+ square Km and is divided into different zones. i.e. Bijrani, Dhikala, Jhirna, Dominda and Sonanadi. I entered the Park through Jhirna zone, which is closed to a town Ramnagar and is the only zone which remains open throughout the year, other zones are closed during monsoons (probably after 15th June)I hired a Gypsy from my resort ‘The Wild Crest ‘ and I woke up early in the morning and ventured out at 6:00 a.m. and entered into park gate, formalities were hassle free and I was joined by my guide “Sukhbir Singh”, who advised me on the do’s and don’ts during the ride and then enlightened me with his knowledge about the park. Once into the jungle experience was awesome like the smell of the jungle, the sound of animals and birds was a treat to my senses. It was then that I realized that I should enjoy the ambiance of the Jungle in totality and not keep thinking about spotting the Tigers only!
How to go: (Delhi - Muradabad-Ramnagar)#BestOfTravel There maybe a long list of places for a #WeekendGetaway from Delhi, but one of my favorite pick is #JimCorbett. It takes around 6 hours drive from Delhi which makes it a perfect candidate to go #OffTheGrid, away from the concrete jungle made of crowded streets and filled with honking vehicles polluting the Delhi's environment.Here are few moments in the video :
We Spent our whole evening here watching the sun go down. I clicked some of my great shots here. Really, a very lovely and exciting place for the photography lovers like me. We came back to the hotel with a complete satisfaction of our visit to Ranikhet.On the next morning, we checked out from EoN quite early in the morning. We have our tickets booked for Safari at Jim Corbett National Park, Ramnagar in the afternoon. The drive was more than of 120 kms and it took more than 5 hours to reach Ramnagar. But on the way, we also visited one of the most beautiful temple in Ramnagar. Garjiya Devi Temple, also known as the festival of lights of the gods, is a famous Devi temple located in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, India. The temple is situated over a large rock in the Kosi River.

The next day we visited Jim Corbett National Park- one of the most renowned national parks in India as the last of our spots before heading back to Delhi.
On our Day 3 we headed towards Jim Corbet National Park , reached there by Eve and had lovely Evening in Clarissa resort.Early Morning we left at 5:30 for jungle Safari and we entered the Jungle at 6:30 and we were luck enough to see the tiger by 6:45 itself.and saw black faced Monkey , Spotted dear and many more animals.Overall it was an amazing New Year Trip with Friends:)
Day 8( Safari )- Cause we had’nt booked the safari online , we went about the safari in the reserve forest area. You can either plan on the morning safari or the afternoon one , we opted for the afternoon one and went for it , we just came across a few deers and loads of monkey’s , a little dissapointed but we went back to the resort and spent some time there .Cost of stay for 2 days(breakfast included) – Rs 7000Cab cost to the Den– Rs 4000
Day 7 (Drive to the Corbett)- So we started our trek from Itmenaan to reach the cab , then headed to Jim Corbett national park which was about 200kms from Almora and 250 kms from the resort around 7 hours . So about the stay in Jim Corbett make sure that you book the government stay 45 to 50 days prior to the visit cause that would be the best way to go about it as they take you for the Safari in the core area , for which the booking needs to be done online , we happened to miss the Core area safari which has the maximum possibility of you getting glimpses of the tiger , hence had to go for the Reserve area safari , which frankly wasn’t great except the drive in the Jeep ;) . We booked another stay in Corbett called the Den, lovely stay though. Reached the place in the evening and were pretty happy about the resort amenities and stuck around the property for that day .
The city roads of Ramnagar, gradually merge into the woods of Jim Corbett National Park, but the destination remains unseen. Straight following the roads we went deep into the forest and after crossing all, from a steep upward turn, begins the hills. Curves, turns, slopes running up and down, we go on with the frequent horns- "Blow horn on turns." Kilometers away, we started seeing the rocks painted as E*N with a direction arrow but the distance is only a surprise. On way we see some villages, some vendors selling chips and snacks, the trek paths and some small waterfalls. Every turn is proved to be a new frame to save a place in the camera.
Chandan with his few friends (Nittin and Pankaaj) have started a new venture Adventuria, which does adventure Sports. And all their Camps, resorts and hotels are verified properties. And they are highly Active in Himachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand.
DAY 3The morning we roam around camp and found many “Touch Me Not” plant. Those who don’t know what touch me not plant is. It is a leaf, which sleeps immediately while you touch them. There is a full farm, of these plants.
Now, he gave us the challenge to enter core areas of Jungle and to drink a cup of Tea. “Mid Night Tea Challenge inside Core Jungle Areas of Jim Corbett National Park”. Challenge accepted and we went inside the Jungle. Mr Ajit Negi has an Army Jeep, what a class. Full flow rivers and bad roads were nothing in front of it. I became a fan. Of course, he was driving on those terrains.So we had the cup of tea inside the mid jungle, with a strange feeling that at any given point of time a Tiger, Leopard, Elephant or any wild animal could attack you. Everywhere it’s dark, all you could see what car head lights could show you.
At night, the hill was not clearly visible, but what a view it was. River passing by, a beautiful waterfall. Further, I could reach a place, where I could see Two rivers meet. One was dusty, sort of flash flood and another one was clean. From the top, you could differentiate the colours. It looks beautiful.
I was planning to book a resort beforehand, however, since it was off season, I later decided not to. I expected the usual rates to be less. It turned out to be an excellent decision. I drove for a short while (learning phase), where as bro and dad took turns as we crossed smaller towns.
2) Jim Corbett and NainitalOne more destination easily accessible through personal car. Explore the wilds and get close with big cats. Enjoy the night stay in huts in low level mountains. Relax here for a couple of days or get going towards Nainital. Take a essence of cool breeze. A walk near the lake at night will melt your city hustle and overload.
Lying below the popular hill station Nainital, Jim Corbett is a place for absolute Wildlife lovers. The reason is simple - The Jungle safari to the dense regions that has big cats like the Tigers, Lion and more. Photographers from around the country visit the place to get some crazy wildlife shots.
If you want to spend all your time indoors, experiencing the majestic beauty of the jungle from behind glass windows, then pick Corbett as your destination in July. Jim Corbett National Park sees rainfall from July to September. While it rains outside, it would be quite difficult to go for a safari or enjoy activities in the river such as rafting because the river becomes wild with strong rapids. While there is nothing more to do than gander at the lush green foliage, it can still be a paradise for people who want some alone time with nature.Explore the national park in winter, when you will be able to spot plenty of wild animals out and about.
Good Morning ! Yeah ! Fresh and Fine ! Now headed to dine with all my packing done ahead to proceed towards Corbett ! I was damn excited to witness the wildlife of Corbett. The route was damn beautiful. Enroute I made sure before heading I visited the Bhimtal and the Nainital Zoo. I reached fairly well on time by 04:00 PM I was at my Corbett hotel. I checked-in into the Treetop Sterling, Corbett. The rooms were brilliant and I quickly stepped in into the pool. I had my plans to visit the National Park next morning and breakfast and check-out. So I loved a time at the pool. Socialized with a few people here. Had my dinner and slept.
The fight for environmental protection has once again reached the hill state of Uttarakhand and this time, the stakes are higher than ever before.The government of Uttarakhand recently took a decision to construct the Kandi Highway right through the core region of Jim Corbett National Park. This distressing news came in soon after Trivendra Singh Rawat was sworn in as the chief minister of Uttarakhand in March this year. The proposed route aims to connect Garhwal and Kumaon, two divisions of Uttarakhand, and reduce travel time between the two by two hours.But this decision taken by the newly-elected BJP government has faced severe criticism for overlooking the disastrous ramifications it will have on the wildlife of the national park.The project will not only include felling of trees along the route but also disrupt the ecological balance of the core zone of Corbett where human impact is minimal. The impending threat is on 50 mammal species, 580 bird species and 25 reptile species whose natural course of sustenance is set to be disrupted.In 2001, a project to carpet Kandi Road was halted after eight incidents of poaching elephants were exposed.
