    • Trip to Jim Corbett

      Thanks a lot. Our Nainital tour is concluded without much issues except the car and te driver. The driver was well behaved but he was NOT familiar with the area due to which we had to waste lot of time. It took approx 11 hours to reach Ranikhet, we therefore, had to skip all sightseeing there. The brakes of the Innova failed which would have led to major disestor if it happened on hills. The brake pads were found badly worn out, Which could have been replaced at the time of its routine service, which would be happening every 10/15 days on the basis of its running. Hotel Corbett View Resort is too Good for its cottages & Sevices

      The trip to Jim Corbett was good. The Corbett Treat resort was upto the mark. But the best part was the Safari. Thanks to Jyoti for coordinating well. Being able to see herd of elephants, various deers, etc. as part of Safari made it worthwhile.
