JIM CORBETT TIGER RESERVE
STAY : Forget luxurious Resort and Hotels when you decide to visit this reserve , rather book yourself in one of the 5 Forest Rest house located right in middle of the Forest and enjoy the thrill , excitement and goosebumps moment caused by the dark ambiance and occasional sounds of various wildlife animals .
This is the only sanctuary in India , which allows tourists to stay inside the park . This reserve is divided in 5 Zones and most sought after FRH are namely Bijrani ,Malani(Both in Bijrani Zone) & Dhikala(Dhikala Zone) Bijrani is famous for Tiger sighting ,while Dhikala is famous for Acquatic species like & other wild animals as Elephant and boars
With Basic food , negligible artificial lights , no loud music , it’s a dream stay for nature lover and a nightmare for party lover .
We booked our stay in BIJRANI FRH which is almost 11 km inside the park . This is secured by Electric fence and has 7-8 rooms for stay and a local kitchen which get it’s supplies from town .Only Local Jeep are allowed inside which are authorized by Forest Dept .
Plan your trip : Online reservation for FRH is allowed on the JIM Corbett official website, ( o/ ) which need to be booked in advance due to high demand . Maximum of 3 days booking is allowed for single entry . Stay in FRH includes the Jungle permit and Gypsy entry charges .
Reaching Jim Corbett : From Delhi best option is by car or by train . We took overnight Train Corbett Park Link Express ( 20145 ) which dropped us at Ramnagar which is 10 km away from Park and runs daily from Delhi .
If you are in mood of true Camping adventure then go for MALANI FRH , where you need to bring your own food and allowed to cook right outside camp .and YES , It’s always good time to visit this place except during monsoon .
Spotting Tiger is similar to getting call from KBC , happens rare but the stay , safari and observing stars in a clean sky makes you visit this place again and again .
