Would you care to share the guides number/contacts? also costs for jeeps, Dhikala room etc?

Another thing i wanted to ask you is how do you put pix in between the text. I have not figured that out yet! Ha!

Your post looks so cool! Really nice reading. If you would care to read about Lions in GIr I have a trip report posted recently.
Thank you for the positive comments Happyarun. I have read your trip report on Gir, loved it and te photos too. You MUST MUST visit Corbett, I am sure you will love it and you are so close! My best advice is to contact Ramesh Suyal at tigersincorbett.wetpaintcom. Ramesh organised everything for us and as an Indian national(I assume) you will get a much cheaper rate than us for the rest lodge etc!

As for the photo insertions into the report I had considerable difficulty with this but sorted it with Nadregs help. I have forgotten the exact procedure but if you look at this link it should explain it. http://www.indiamike.com/india/forum...tures-t107519/
I hope it helps.

Thanks for the positive feedback Mermaid, I think articles are decided by the forum moderators but I am not really sure. There are so many good threads though, have a look at Happyaruns lions in Gir report too if you are into wildlife.

Thanks for the referral Tripsammy. Appreciate it.

The thing wanted to post is that i have started this thread called "How can we save the tiger?".

There is a walk, AT CORBETT on May 14th. I plan to go.

cheers

Ramesh is starting an NGO/charity
He is calling it MR STRIPES

Mission Remit, Saving Tigers Initially by Providing Educational Support
or something similar.

Tiger tourist cash helps him to clothe and educate the local school children. The kids grow up,with the tiger to thank for their education.
Sounds like a winner to me !

Ramesh does so much for the local community at Corbett tiger reserve. He is currently putting 10 orphans through school,just installed a water purifier, and cooler in the local school.He needs all the help he can get.
He is the best guide at Corbett if you are looking to visit.
Any profits go towards the kids in the village, so one day they can say "I was educated by tigers".
It may be a coincidence, but since starting tigersincorbett, tiger numbers there, have risen dramatically.

You are most welcome my friend.
He is only in the early stages of doing this, but I know and trust him to see it through to fruition.
Contact Ramesh here

Happyarun, I have posted on the photos thread some guidance on inserting photos into the threads, I hope it is clear and of use!

Tigerman, I fully support Ramesh's actions, his work with the orphans and the school is incredible, as a local himself he is well placed to increase awareness of the benefits of tigers through education. If only more people were so enthusiastic. I love the idea of the walk....a bit far for me though but my thoughts will be with you all>

Tigerman, MR STIPES was a singer with REM LOL. Another acronym

You missed out the R in stRipes which will stand for "Relying"

Missions Remit, Saving Tigers Relying Initially upon Primary Educational Support.
You are right when you say he is starting, its in the early stages still, so the sooner he gets some help the better.
I would be first in line to go help if I was not so fragile still. I am itching to just go and sit in a jeep and spot some tigers. Thanks anyway Tigerman for raising the subject.

Happyarun, I wish I was fit enough for that walk. I have done that route a few times in the daytime, but in the dark, its as scary as hell.
If it was taking place in the dark, and people were being sponsored, I would happily double my sponsorship.

Tripsammy, could'nt you go, and do it for us ? I would really enjoy reading your write up and photos afterwards.

Ha Ha I did enjoy your reply Happyarun.
From the link you supplied I found this

Walk Information
It is proposed that the Freedom Walk for the Tigers will be held outside of Corbetts National Park in INDIA on the 14th May 2011 at 8am Ramnagar near the Project Tiger Office.

Start Point
1.Ramnagar Project Tiger Office 0 km (Central Reservation Building near Bus Stand/Railway Station)
Ramnagar is the gateway of Corbetts National Park and at the base of the Himalayan Mountains.
2. Amdanda Gate Corbett 2 kms.
3. Dhikuli Village 10 kms.
4. Garjia Village 12 kms.
5. Dhangarhi Gate Corbett (entrance for Dhikala Range of Corbett)18 kms.

The entire route is alongside the Corbett National Park boundary on the left and Kosi riverbed on the right.

It is a bit uphill but only gradual. It is dead scary in the dark, but it starts at 8am. There are many tigers and Leopards around, and in the half light are not nearly so recognisable in grey and black stripes and spots. But by then the day will be nearly over by 8am. The tigers will be chasing jeeps inside the park at that time.
You will be fine.
