Where else in India, apart from 5 star hotels, do waiters reply "Welcome" when you say "Thank You" ?

Thanks for sharing the pics and the log.
Agoratoli range is good for bird watching. Personally even I wanted to visit all 3 ranges but after 2 safaris, everybody was tired. Also we were short on time and had to be back the next day. Hence, it was decided to visit the Kohora range as it contains all types of forest - Grassland as well as dense evergreen type.

Encroachment problem is not that much evident. At least not on the paths that tourists take. Most of the huts that you might see actually belong to forest guards and mahouts, etc. On the other hand, one serious problem is poaching that has mounted to alarming proportions. Rhino horns are sold in lacs in Chinese markets and now when Bhutan and Nepal have made poaching harder on their grounds, poachers have turned to these soft targets. According to some reports, 26 Rhinos were killed in 2012 alone and 8 have been killed this year till March so far.

Actually shot this one from quite far, from atop the watch tower in the next photo. These are the times when even 800 mm (eqv.) zoom lens seems inadequate.
