I've done reservations for this place after reading this TR! Thanks for the inspiration!

Couple of doubts:
1. Can I travel till Tumsar Road/TMR and not till Gondia/G? This will save me time and money. Can I get a cab from Tumsar Road?
2. I've booked in Loghut. Should I've a vehicle with me always till I'm there?

Wow ! Loghut is possibly the best accommodation inside the park (apart from 'Niloy', the place reserved for VIPs). Now answering your queries :

1. Sorry, don't have much idea about Tumsar Road. Possibly some other members would be able to help you. But pre-booking of Car is always advisable.

2. Yes, you have to keep a Car with you during your stay at the park. One guide will also be allocated to you while entering the park & he will also stay with you for the entire period.

Thanks for your comments & have a nice trip.

Excellent writeup Arup Da...I read this in one go...
Equally beautiful pictures. You are one very lucky person to have so many animal sightings in the forest. Leopard, bison, colourful birds, deers and what not!!!!
Your camera seems to be quiet a good one. A semi-professional may be. Hope to have a good DSLR some day which can make up my bad photographic skills

Thanks for the appreciation , Saptarshi. I use Nikon D40, only a first generation DSLR. But the model is very hardy & still it is giving satisfactory result .

Truly speaking , I did not realize that the particular mark was captured while taking the photos. Only on that evening , when we were chatting in the resort & rechecking the photos on Cam, I noticed the Mark. I knew the fact , so I showed it to the resort staffs (all are from Chorkhamara Village ) & got confirmation from them about the mark.

Lovely narration Arup'da. Needless to say about the stunning photos, just brilliant use of light and composition.

Doubts from my side :

1. Do the cabs from Gondia Station drop/pick up till Latakunj/Loghut/Madhukunj inside the park?
2. Any idea about Kusumtondi Homestay near Chorkhamara camp ( listed in Maha Ecotourism website) ? If yes, is battery charging option available there?

Thanks for your comments, paglaghora. Now answering your queries..

1.Yes, you can hire a car from Gondia & reach the FRH s inside the park. In that case the vehicle entry charge is to be paid at the gate. But I think hiring a gypsy from chorkhamara gate is always a better option.

2. Sorry , I don't have any idea about that homestay. But there is electricity in Chorkhamara village. So I think battery charging will not be a problem there.
