Modernisation is catching up fast in Dhanachuli. The region was once called the most favoured of Jim Corbett and still has some semblance of the natural sheen of bliss and beauty. Being close to Mukteshwar, modern amenities are not far away. The Edheshwar Temple in Dhanachuli is a wonderful visit during the month of Saawan (monsoon in the lunar calendar). I would recommend staying at Te Aroha, as the other resorts along the way are neither eco-friendly nor offer the class of comfort. Early morning and late afternoons can be spent well in the company of the thousands of birds that are unique and visiting the region.
