Corbett -- The jungle calls

All I knew about Corbett until 2006 was that it is an amazing paramount of resorts: Hideway, River Retreat, Tiger Camp etc. And then I discovered the jungles of Dhikala, Sarpadhuli and Sultan in the Corbett National Park.

Airfare for Rs 599 and less!

A safari to Dhikala, a good 45 minutes, was a ride through heaven. Moving through lush green forests covered with peachish spring leaves, which if crushed could be mistaken for gold dust, I kept thanking God for the wonderful sight with the sunrays peeping in through the sal trees every now and then.
