The heart of jungle. It's surrounded by electrified fencing but no walled boundry. Tigers roam around here, but to spot them you have live inside for a day or two.
The best of place with Tiger sighting possibilities. It is so scenic that you would want to extend your stay every time. Wonderful place, delicious food and service
Nice forest rest house inside Jim Corbett national park. View of river is breathtaking from rear deck of guest house. Food is good. Every day one safari is organized from guest house.
Enjoyed nature and wild life. Recommend if you want to stay with wild life. Do not go there or stay there with lots of expectation about tiger because its typically a luck. You need to be at right place at right time.
