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.
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.
The best part about Delhi is you can plan sudden weekends without a whole in your pocket. Delhi has the best possible neighbours, from hills of himachal to desserts of rajashthan delhites are sure to find their travelling sparks. It was one such weekend when we couldn't decide do we want wildlife or we want hills and that's when we decided to go for both afterall uttarakhand is our neighbour so we planned it accordingly. First Jim corbett and then Nainital. We started off early and reached Corbett by afternoon. The journey was a delgiht travelling in straight roads covered by dense trees on both sides, it'll surely give you the jungle thrills you were waiting for. On reaching we checked in to a beautiful resort called le roi. The forest area was closed because we went during off season but we drove our way to nearby forest areas and river.  The sky full of stars with fast blowing winds from the jungle perfectly synced with the resort pool area. The definition of a perfectly relaxing weekend I would say.

Abutting the Himalayas, the oldest National Park, Corbett is not just home to tigers, but has much more to offer, apart from the majestic cats.
I reached Ramnagar at around 11am, I went to Jim Corbett but the Jeep Jungle Safari was already full & I had to go back. I asked a Cobbler boy(7) (very nice guy) is there any other place to go nearby he told me there is one Durga Devi temple near & also you can go to Corbett Falls, I told him I will go to Durga Devi Temple, he told me also to pray for him when I go there, I reached temple at around 12:45pm, but it was too rush, so I decided to come back & go to Corbett Falls as I had not much time. So went to Corbett falls, reached there at around 3:30pm after having lunch etcWhen I saw Corbett Falls way & Corbett Falls I was thrilled to see it, it is extremely beautifully, I was there for around half & hour and after that there came 5 boys(8) who were from UP, we had chat they asked me from where I am, when I told them that I am alone & came from Thane, they very surprised that I alone came this long way. Looking at my excitement for waterfall they told me I can go & swim there, I wasted no time & went under the waterfall and asked them to take my pictures, it was great feelingAfter all that they told me where is my next destination I told them I want to go to Dehradun & Mussoorie, so they told me that they can drop me in their car till Haldwani and from Haldwani they told me to take auto till Kathgodham & from there I will get train to Dehradun. So they dropped me till Haldwani & from there I went by auto to Kathgodham Train Station. I was standing in queue of Current Ticket Booking & after 10-15mins there came one person who was having 2 sleeper class tickets from Kathgodham till Dehradun, I just took this opportunity & took 1 ticket and also found another person who took the other ticket, went comfortably sleeping till Dehradun
it was a weekend trip from our institute in Kanpur in June 2016. we started our journey on Friday by train from Kanpur to Moradabad and reached Moradabad by 2 A.M. in morning of Saturday. and then took a bus for Ramnagar which is around 81 KM away from it (around 2.5 hours journey), so finally we reached Ramnagar around 5 A.M. and was all set to start our first safari in the morning as we had a good sleep on the train.Park office normally opens around 6-6.30 A.M (you need to get some official stamp papers to start your safari), so in meantime, we did our breakfast as normally market opens around 4 A.M., buy fruits and other stuff for dinner ( we booked our accommodation in park itself in Jhirna zone and you don't get any eatables in the park ) and booked our jeep as there is a limit on number of jeeps which can enter the park at one point of time.Tip:-For the greater experience of the park, try to book your accommodation in the park itself and they open booking for the day 2 days prior to it and their site is worse than IRCTC. so try to book it patiently and if possible try your accommodation in Dhikala or bijrani (Corbett has 4 zones) as from these zones you can have elephant safari in the morning.
Jim Corbett, Uttarakhand: Perhaps the best time to visit this National Park is monsoons as it isn’t very crowded then but some part of the Park remains closed for safety reasons. There are however, four zones- Dhikala, Durga Devi, Jhirna and Bijrani that remain open to visitors throughout the year. Hardly 6 hours drive from the national capital, Jim Corbett National Park is a wildlife lover’s paradise. For those who love rafting, monsoon is probably a good time to head to this place as the Kosi remains depthless rest of the year. Hop on for some jungle safari, enjoy the flora and fauna present in abundance at this National Park.
