It was a 17-18 hour journey to Ramnagar and i reached there by 1-2 AM it was dark , chilling night and not much passengers on Railway station , All i could see was some mountains and a tea stall. I had a hot cup of tea which was very refreshing in that cold night and i was tired also.
I cam out from Station and saw some park jeeps with drivers waiting for their guests. i asked one of the driver about how to enter the park and best possible way to see park but he gave me a disappointing news that to visit the park one have to book a slot 90 days prior. I was like shit but hopes were still alive as i can do something let me think.
I didn't hired any taxi and decided to walk as the hotels were nearby according to jeep driver. in a cold night , silent road , with little bad news and tired body searching hotel i came across to one guest house had little bit bargain and got the room in 500 Rs. the room was quite good with the views of green mountains.
I asked hotel boy , how could i can visit park as jeep driver told that i can not. he told me that he can arrange something but i have to go in canter which takes 16-20 people at a time. i agreed and he arranged my seat for next morning , i retired for a night excited about my dream coming true after few hours.
its 6 AM and i was all ready searching for hotel boy , had a tea and little breakfast just outside guesthouse , Hotel boy came and we started to walk towards the point where canter was going to pick me up. Canter arrived, it was 6 hours of jungle safari waiting for me. i was having only my mobile as camera and till now i lost almost all the photos which i clicked that day.
with me in the canter there were 12-13 other people telling stories and things from there past adventures. There are total 5 zones for this park and i was at Dhikala zone. Journey started and i saw wild boars, Deers, Sambar, Langoors, and other small animals and then spotted tiger pug mark but unfortunately didn't spotted Tiger and after couple of hours we stopped at forest lodge which was having canteen.
