Some info on the destinations:
Corbett National Park has captured the imagination of many with its diverse wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. Its geographical location between the Himalayas and the terrain, and the streams, rivers and ridges crisscrossing the terrain, present Corbett with a remarkable variety of landscapes. This vivid mosaic of habitats - wet and dry, plain and mountainous, gentle and rugged, forests and grasslands - supports numerous plant and animal species, representing Himalayan as well as plains kinds. The most famous of Corbett's wild residents are the Bengal Tiger and the Asiatic Elephant, but with about 600 species of avifauna, Corbett is one of the richest bird regions of India.
Besides being located at a biogeographic confluence, Corbett National Park is situated at the junction of two distinct hill regions of Uttaranchal - Garhwal and Kumaon.
Local lore has it that Ranikhet has been named after Rani Padmini, who was so enamored by the place that she decided to stay there. Ranikhet is still a cantonment town and is the Kumaon Regimental Center. The Rani is long gone but the beauty of the place remains with its virginity and pristine charm. Quietly ensconced amidst pine trees with a charming background of the snow clad Himalayas, it is a haven for bird watchers and visitors who wish to spend their holidays in solitude. The sweep of the Himalayan range visible from here is arguably the largest available from any place. It is pure heaven 6,000 feet above the sea level, amidst nature's abundant beauty. Nestled amidst towering pine and deodar trees, pathways lead you to a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas that spell wonderment.
A well known forest reserve and bird sanctuary, Binsar is situated at an altitude of 8,100 feet, on the Jhandi Dhar hills of Kumaon and was once the capital of the Chand Raj Dynasty. The entire region is surrounded by virgin forests of oak, rhododendron, pine and deodar - a wonderful getaway for those looking for solitude and a closer experience with nature.
Given below are the details of the trip:
