Hi,
Looking for some advice on travel itinerary for myself and my partner. We will arrive and depart by flight via Dehradun with 11 days to see Dehradun, Rishikesh, possibly Mussoorie, Haridwar and would love to see Jim Corbett National Park.
Looking for advice on where to stay, how to travel between places. Should we stay in one location and do day trips or we were thinking a couple of days in Dehradun, a few days in Rishikesh and a couple of nights at a resort in Corbett national park?
I'm trying to start at point A with accommodation in Dehradun but without knowing the area it's hard to tell where to stay. We'd like to be close to restaurants and points of interest. He may like to visit a gym and for me some hatha yoga.
We would also be interested in visiting Hindu temples.

We are on a budget but prefer somewhere nice enough for a couple to enjoy and relax without any worries of cold showers or dirty linen etc. We're not after luxury but perhaps somewhere quiet we can retreat to yet close to town with nice views?
Recommendations welcome for couple friendly hotels, things to do or see and best way to travel between our destinations.

Oh and we like restaurants with good couches and veg menu!

Thanks!

This is my friend's place in Dehradun. Very central, for shopping, restaurants, snacks and all that... Very clean, hot water etc. Hotel Park View Premium.

You'll find it on any booking site. Jolly Grant airport is closer to Rishikesh than Doon. Doon is not so charming any longer. We're there specific reasons to visit?

No specific reason at all, we had just assumed it was closest to the airport. Dehradun is his interest and Rishikesh is more mine. Sounds like staying in Rishikesh then travelling to the national park to stay for a few nights might be the best way to go?

I think so.... choose csrefully where you stay in Rishikesh, the North, upstream side is preferable I'd say.

i'm going to corbett in early feb. if you wish to stay within the reserve (ideal), as a foreigner you need to apply for booking a room 90 days beforehand, as an indian national 45 days in advance. this is the official website:
http://corbettonline.uk.gov.in
there are other accommodation options but these are privately owned, pricey and always outside the reserve.
apparently, the best way to go from mussoorie to corbett is by first going from mussoorie to dehradun by bus or taxi (about 45 minutes) and then take a bus from dehradun to ramnagar (nearest town to corbett) which takes about 5-6 hours.
within corbett the reserve is divided into several zones, each with accommodation possibilities. i am not sure yet which zones to opt for (i have a whole week there) but dhikala is an important zone for seeing animals.
if anyone has been to corbett i'd love to hear from them, please share your experiences here.
