San (Sandeep) and me (Rakesh) had been planning many a times to be at Corbett for long but for some or the another reason, we were not able to make it ..

Finally we thought lets leave planning and set off.. We thought of catching train Ranikhet Link express.. but Since we left late in the evening we missed that. That didnt let us down as we had made up our mind any how we will reach there.

So we rushed to Bus Station, you wont belive we had missed the direct bus also.. So we were left with with the option of catching a intermediate destination "Moradabad" bus and then catch a bus from thier to Ramnagar.

And we did the same. Luckily for us the UP roadways bus was not having that many passesgers so we could use the vacant seats to lie down. Till the time we woke up we were in Moradabad. We took a connecting bus to Ramnagar and reach at around 7.00 AM.

Now the biggest shock. we came to know that the parks main area is closed. and a smaller portion is open. That was quite a shock but since we were there we decided to go ahead with what we had..

We checked-in a decent looking hotel and two a double bedroom.. it was quite comfortable then we set out for an outing and went to Girjya Devi Temple.. and San and I enjoyed a lot..The river Kosi is flowing with a very fast pace and its great adventure to cross it with foot.

The next day early in the morning we went for the Jeep Safari.

. Only early morning and evening trips are allowed so we took the morning trip, the cost is around Rs 1000.

The next shock was to see the open jeep, how can they take us to the jungles without a cover, the guide laughingly told us the animal are more scared of you. But i soon realised the fun was in open jeep only, they took us around 20 KM deep in jungles and although we narrowly missed to see a tiger but we did managed to see lots of deer, lagoons, different kind of birds and ofcourse elephant too..

The safari was amazing, we retured and spent the whole day on the banks of river kosi and were very happy to be there, planning for our next expedition..
