In spite of knowing that we are low on usable cash for next 6 days (reason demonetization - 8th Sept 2016), our journey started as we planned it a day ago. Early morning (Sept 9th 2016) we reached Ramnagar and stopped at Garjia Temple (Kosi River) near Ramnagar, first birding hotspot where we found a lot of spices like kingfishers (pied, common and crested), river lapwing, white napped redstart, chats, and other common water birds. By evening we were at Pawalgarh, located in the outskirts of Jim Corbett National park, and is well known for birding. Late evening we reached at Harryman’s homestay run by a local NGO called Pawalgarh Prakriti Prehari. Primarily it is managed by Bhupinder Singh Manral (Birder and nature guide), his father and other family members. This family is too much in to nature. Guest house has huge campus with verity of flowers, fruit and medicinal trees planted. At the center of this lawn there is theme house (theme – nature, wildlife and culture). Small rooms made up of bricks and clay are well decorated by using feathers, leaves, wooden crafts, and other things easily available around. On the roof top there is an open air office of NGO along with library with lots of reading material about local flora and fauna. Sitting on an easy chair with a book, feeling cool breeze against your face, getting disturbed by any bird call sitting near you on any tree, and your response is a smile on your face and curious eyes, all this experience is a real treat for nature enthusiast. The food they provide is best in class; it is the best home stay I have ever experienced.
