Jim Corbett National Park made Easy

Quote:
Arranging a trip to Jim Corbett National Park is not as easy as many may think. So, please read this entire article before going off half cocked.

You start by Googling Corbett, and you will be given many websites as recommendeds to visit. These and other websites are full of lovely pictures, theres an odd email link to info@ some-website.com, and a phone number. So you email these people and "No Reply" comes the stern answer.

Mission accepted (though well after that 5 seconds limits I believe). Off to Corbett in the start of May for 6 days.

Oh and I already have a trip report finished for LRK-GRK trip (12 days), which I would be posting shortly soon as I sort out my photographs.

I have following questions to ask corbett lovers, Delhi to Ramnagar, how is the road condition and how long will it take if I start early in the morning (6ish), by a taxi? How much does the taxi charge in general (with AC)? Train is not an option as of now.

Cheers,
Kartik

tripsammy you are just fishing for compliments now,rightly so, and I dont blame you. The report you did was superb, and I totally believe that credit should go where it is deserved.


kartikp, I hope you have a great trip.
Apparently the road condition is now pretty good,and the journey should take approx 6 hours, stopping off for breakfast and toilet break on the way
The cost of a taxi will of course vary depending on the size of your party. An Indica size will cost between 5-6,000/-
a bigger vehicle like an Innova will be 7,500 - 8,500/-

You could perhaps find cheaper companies using older vehicles, that may not be so safe, poorly maintained, or even legally on the road, uninsured etc.

I just asked a question on another thread regarding the present cost of visiting a couple of other tiger parks.

I was wondering if Corbett costs were high compared to some other parks.
I have been only to Corbett for a number of years now

Having had a little look around, I found this link to be informative

https://www.mponline.gov.in/portal/S...est_Depart.pdf

I found some useful information about fees for Bandhavgarh, Pench, Panna, & Kanha.
I am pleased to report, I no longer consider Corbett to be anymore costly than these other parks.

One phrase I came across, reminded me of what I was not missing out on at places like Bandhavgarh . . . "Tiger/Leopard show"

If I wanted a "show" I go to Broadway

Thanks Fugly we got back from our trip a week or so ago, but were actually at corbetts at the end of May. Your instructions were totally acurate, as was your advice. We had a ball, and saw 4 tigers in 5 days. Ramesh and his team were totally awesome.
They spoke very highly of you Fugly
Its easy to see why you and tripsammy are so enthusiastic.
The tripsammy report on Corbett was just as awesome.
I hope to visit again as soon as I can, maybe we could meet up there one time.
Until then our thanks to you for the great advice.
Russell

No need to thank me Flyinghi, I wish only to help Ramesh, and the Corbett community, in anyway I can, I'm very pleased to hear that you had a good time, now you must do your bit, and tell others.

Ditto to what tripsammy said, some photos would be good to see.
You can never see too many photos of tigers, but of course,a sighting of the real thing is much better

This thread is excellent. It brings back memories of a wonderful place.

I visited Corbett in March 2011 and it was a great adventure. After reading posts on IM, I decided to make my arrangements through Ramesh Suyal. It was a wise decision.

I had a day-long jeep safari in the Bjrani area. Following that, I spent 3 days and 2 nights in the Dhikala area.

During this time I saw 3 tigers (including one only a few metres away), several herds of elephants (for prolonged periods and only a few metres away), gharial and mugger crocodiles, jungle cats, jackals, sambar, spotted deer, barking deer, monkeys, eagles, vultures, bee-eaters, hoopoe, kingfishers and numerous other bird species, many butterflies and beautiful Sal forests.

There were plenty of times during the safaris when our jeep was far away from any others, so it was just us in beautiful and expansive wilderness. The animals, the landscape, it was all breathtaking and I can't wait to go back.

Ramesh and his staff were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, friendly and flexible. I also met Ramesh’s family and enjoyed many meals with them. I actually stayed with his family for a few days too, which was great fun. They were most hospitable. I was travelling alone and Ramesh, his team and his family treated me like family. They were honest, reliable guides and intelligent, fun company.

I had such a great time around the Corbett area and I trusted Ramesh a lot after having only known him a few days. So, I happily took up his suggestion of spending a couple of nights at Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary. As promised, my stay was amazing and I ended up staying an extra night.

I echo the theme of other posts on IM in relation to Ramesh. I admire his committment to his community and personally recommend booking a Corbett experience through him.

I can't find any costs over at this site by Ramesh, are there any average 'all inclusive' prices for 1 day, 2 day trips?

Nice guide by the way

Thanks spud, glad you found it useful.
You need to fill out the enquiry form on his website and submit

When he gets it he will give you a cost according to your requirements

Well, some kind soul from the Tigersincorbett team got back to me with an extended-bore-me-to-death 'standard' email telling me everything I didn't want to know and nothing I did.
"I'd like to stay in the park 2 nights please" check! "Dhikala area please" recommended for your short stay!
They also did a great job of trying to put me off. "I'll be coming from Delhi and I'm also on my (...wait for it...) own"
no do dorms (a bit shi**y then?) & you'll pay double! I'm sure it's an oversight but they still skipped the only question on my enquiry. How much does it cost? Dear me. Emailed them again and tried to look 100% still interested.

Hi there spud
I'm pretty sure it was never mentioned that you would pay double because you are travelling alone. I imagine that something has been lost in translation on that score.
I also know for a fact that after only one email there is no way they would give you a cost
The first reply will make it clear that Ramesh is not a travel agent, and roughly tell you what the options of getting to Corbett are, and if you do decide that you do wish to use his services, how to go about making payment.
On the subject of Dorms, they are bad you would'nt want to use them. When I last looked, I thought I would'nt let my dog use them.
The "bore me to death" mail you mentioned is very useful information to any first time visitor to Corbett. Have you been there before ?
