Enjoy jungle safari in Corbett

Jeep-safari-at-Jim-Corbett-Natioanl-Park2

The sinking feeling you have getting stuck in the traffic, wading through the sea of people in the crowded market every day for things you need, disappointment of leading a mechanical life where you bang your head with smartphones and laptops through the day to be in sync with the need of the professional life.

A life devoid of simple joys of nature is no life at all. There are times when the heart ache for visiting a place where the views are not restricted by the four walls of the flat, that the nature has created species other than the humans to come across, that there are hills, lakes, valleys, vegetation and wildlife apart from the flyovers and high-rise apartments.

It’s this very reason people take a break from work and head to a getaway to rejuvenate the life. My job is not only to pinpoint a disease but, like a doctor, to recommend the solution as well.  A jungle safari in Corbett is definitely a good idea to inject some thrill in the otherwise monotonous life.

How to reach Jim Corbett National Park?

corbett_national_map1_main

Some 240 Kms away from Delhi, its just 6-7 hrs drive away. For those in love with a train journey, can consider boarding the Ranikhet Express from Delhi (10.45 pm) that will take you to Ramnagar – closest town and railway station to the Park – by the next morning.

About the Jim Corbett National Park

Jim-Corbett-National-Park (1)

People go to Corbett to have a date with Tiger. I hate to bust this bubble of expectation by saying that they are too few and far between. One needs luck to see any of the big cats, be it tiger or leopard. However chances are high for sighting deer, elephant, golden jackal, Himalayan Black bear and Indian Pangolins among other animals. With a keen and sharp eye, you can also revel in spotting Peacock, Parakeets, King Fishers, Doves, Woodpeckers, Partridges, Kaleej, Ducks and Seagull among many. Crocodiles (Mugger) and Gharials have been saved from near extinction by government supported breeding and relocation.  Jeep is the best mode of transport for jungle safari. In case you are someone with taste for uncommon, elephant/horse safari options are also available.

The best time to visit Jim Corbett National Park

corbett-20national-20park-20by-20steven-20cassidy

Like many other sanctuaries in country, the park remains close during the monsoon – from mid-June to mid-November. First, the Safari route becomes submerged due to rain and second, to allow breeding for the resident wildlife unhindered from the intrusive travellers. So, the best time to visit Corbett is summers (March to Mid-June) and winters (December to February). Winter has the extra charm of migratory birds that come all the way down here to escape harsh winter of Central Asia. I suggest you to visit the park during spring to get the best of both seasons.

Where to Stay in Jim Corbett?
