1. Jim Corbett Safari: Venturing Into Wild Territory
Eagerly waiting to see the wild creatures in their natural habitat, we left for early morning jungle safari on the first day itself. With so much excitement and thumping hearts, we were all geared up to enter the animal kingdom. Our driver was quite informative and he gave us all the instructions that we had to strictly follow. Also, he gave us insights into the beauty of this oh-so-famous national park. The safari offered us to encounter various birds and animals such as deer, elephants, langurs, peacocks, monkeys, and also, the beautiful birdlife in abundance was something which we found extremely fascinating. We enjoyed every minute of our safari and witnessing animals doing their daily things was an experience itself! Frankly, the fear of being in the middle of the jungle was initially there, but with our excellent guide and the beauty of this place, all our fears vanished. Also, what uniquely impressed us was the cleanliness of the jungle! Not even a single wrapper or a plastic bag was there polluting the environment. Kudos to the maintenance staff and visitors who acknowledge the importance of cleanliness.
2. Kosi River Ghat: Delving Into Peace & Calm
Our second and last spot was the Kosi River ghat which takes pride in its scenic beauty. At the ghat, we witnessed various animals quenching their thirst and enjoying in the chilling waters. Surprisingly the water was not cold as we thought, moreover, the bright sunlight made it all the more dazzling and fun for us to get inside the river. It was such a sight to see the stones and pebbles in the river bed through the crystal clear water. We were completely in awe of the beauty of this place as the vistas that also included a fusion if greens were something that we will never forget. It is indeed one of the best peaceful places I’ve personally visited so far. There were also some temples nearby which were adding great value to the sanctity of ghat. After having fun and clicking pictures madly, we headed back to our resort.

Shopping was actually not in our minds, so we didn’t go ahead with it. However, we came across many shops and there was a local market near Garjiya Devi Mandir.
