I always had a fascination for roads that pass through dense forests. Who doesn't love the sight of that green world with fresh air and smell of crushed leaves? That's why I an trying to make this thread where we can share information about such roads in a systematic manner so that these roads can be tried as and when we get a chance.
Information can be shared in the following manner:
1. Road description: From place X to Y and whether it's an NH, SH, Interior road etc.
2. Road condition: Good, Bad, Very Bad etc.
3. Whether safe or not: Safe in day, morning, evening, night etc.
4. A brief about flora and fauna and possibility of spotting any wildlife animal on that stretch
5. Travelled in which month / year and by car / bike etc and share a picture if any.

I would like to share a few of my experiences.
1. Angul to Sambalpur, Odisha, NH42
Safe during day, Road condition good, Did not spot any animal but have heard that elephants cross the road sometimes, Travelled in Oct 2014 by car, best time to travel is during or after rainy season when greenery will be at its prime.

2. Tangi (North of Cuttack on NH5) to Dhenkanal, Via Kapilas Forest Range
Interior road but in good condition, Should travel before noon, Travelled in Sep, 2015 by bike, Since there is very little traffic, one gets a true feel of being in mid of the forest

Will share more in subsequent posts.

You aren't allowed to camp on your own. No feeding of animals. ;-) There were some resorts in Jim Corbett as well as pench . No idea if they are still functioning cos I took a day trip. Expenses were for the shared safari jeep. Don't remember the exact amount. But it would be close to 600 per head

Is it for Corbett Or Pench ? As far as I know, shared Jeep safari is not permitted in Corbett. You have to book exclusive Gypsy even if you are travelling solo. Permit is to be obtained well in advance for Corbett ( both for Day Visit & Night Stay at Forest Rest Houses inside the National Park ) .

My bad. I was referring to a gypsy shared by my entire group around 6-7 years back. Creates confusion. Thanks for pointing out.

What comes to my mind is the roads near Chaukori. Especially Choukori to Dharam ghar. This has fantastic views of the snow peaks all along the traverse. The nice views are obstructed by trees on the side of the road. Similarly Chaukori to Kanda towards Bageshwar. And also from Chaukori towards Patal Bhuvneshwar and Gangoli hat.
The road condition is good and safe. Winter is the right time for good views.
Well suited for bicycling.
