Tiger Camp Resort, Jim Corbett- India…Resort review


Tiger Camp Resort is located on the main highway in Jim Corbett National Park. It is almost 12 kms away from the entrance to the park.
We went on a short trip to visit Jim Corbett National Park. To ensure minimum travel time, we started at 4am from Delhi. After a road journey of 7 hours by car from Delhi we reached our resort by noon and checked in.

Ambiance at Tiger Camp Resort
As we entered the resort at noon , sprawling lawns with bamboo shoots covering the walking area welcomed us. Tiger Camp Resort is one of the most popular resorts in Jim Corbett offering a unique feature of its peaceful and serene atmosphere with proximity to the banks of Kosi river. It was this fact for which we booked our rooms in this resort when we visited Jim Corbett.
As we reached our room, monkeys across our window welcomed us. It was scary but wonderful and kids were happy making faces. Room was nicely done and spacious with all amenities. It had a big balcony which had mountain and garden view. Perfect location to treat our eyes.

Our experience

After a delicious lunch in the open lawns with greenery in the backdrop of mountains we went ahead to the banks of Kosi river . We enjoyed walking in the water when my younger one shouted – see there , elephants and there they were , huge elephants carrying revelers and going across Kosi river for an excurtion. Kids were superexited and enjoyed as we told them that we are going on next Elephent safari. We had tea in open area and went ahead with an amazing safari that the staff had conveniently booked for the evening at 4 for us.


Haridwar, aperture of spiritualism

Haridwar- a popular Hindu Religious place, presents an overview of Hindu Culture and civilization. It is one of the four sacred places (other three – Ujjain, Nashik and Dev Prayag)  where after Samudra Manthan drops of nectar or Amrit(the elixir of immortality) fell from the pitcher , while Garuda was taking it for Devtas as per Hindu Mythology.
The place is known for attaining Moksha.  This is why Kumbh Mela is celebrated once in 12 years in Haridwar.

The most sacred place or Ghat in Haridwar is Har ki Pauri – A place where Lord Krishna placed his foot. The place is sacred for Shivaites (who call this place Hardwar – ‘Har’ for lord Shiva) and Vishunites (Haridwar – hari for lord vishnu). It was constructed by King Vikramaditya.
