Your Short Guide To Planning Your First Trip To Jim Corbett

Planning a trip to any place is a bit of a hassle when you don’t have a trip organiser. But the real struggle comes when you are a bit tight on the budget. Planning the whole trip from making travel bookings to deciding the place you would stay in out of all the Jim Corbett Park Resorts can take a toll on you. However, it can be all fun and games too when you do a bit of research before beginning to plan the whole trip.

This blog will help you assimilate every jigsaw piece that is roaming around in your mind. So, let us begin!

How to travel inside the park?

When it comes to travelling inside the park, you should choose a Jeep Safari. Although there are Elephant Safaris as well, we recommend you Jeep only. Why be cruel to animals when there are other options as well. You will be able to complete the tour of the jungle in one day using this. There are various Jim Corbett park resorts located in Ramnagar, you can choose one according to the proximity and budget you have fixed for the same. The park opens at 5:30 in the early morning and closes at 10:00 in the morning. After that, it reopens at 2:00 pm in the afternoon and closes at 6:00 pm in the evening. You should ideally go to the park in the morning time. It surely would be a bit tough for the night owls to wake up this early and bid adieu to their cosy beds in Jim Corbett Park resorts, but once you will get up this early and go to the park; we promise you won’t even regret an ounce of it. The animals and birds would be more easily spotted at this hour of the day.

You can book the safaris in advance. We are asking you to do so as there is a limitation as to how many jeeps can go inside the park that is kept in mind so that the balance between wildlife, humans and nature is not disturbed. For a full day pass, you need to incur extra expenses for a Jeep Safari as it is available for half-day only. The bookings are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Which type of clothes should I carry?

While you are packing your clothes for the trip, make sure you carry the kind of clothes that are in accordance with the season. If there are summers in Delhi region, keep summer clothes with you. In summers the temperature crosses 45 degrees easily and drops as low as 2 degrees in winters. In summers, you should wear cotton clothes and carry a hat, cap, or sunglasses with you. In winters, warm woollen clothes, gloves and muffler should be worn.

When should I go during summers?

In the month of April, May, June, July, the temperature can reach up to 47-degree celsius which isn’t really a great temperature to roam around in. So prefer to go after or before these months or may be at the start of April or end of July. Totally avoid going in June and July.

When should I go during winters?

During Winters, you should try to avoid going in most chill months like December and January. Even though months like November and February are also quite cold, you can go there in these months.

Where should I stay?

Staying should not be really a topic of concern for you as there are many Jim Corbett Park resorts in which you can stay. If you have not pre-booked your stay, you can go to some, and then decide where you want to stay after having a look at the amenities and your budget. We recommend you to look for a property which is in the lap of nature and close to Jim Corbett.

Not just a trip to Jim Corbett but every trip you plan ever in your life should be done after analysing the pros and cons and knowing the best way out for everything. In other words, planning a trip without doing proper homework can make your trip the opposite of fun, relaxing and enjoyable.
