Ajay - The park is open these days but it's quite hot around here. I stayed at The Corbett Hideaway Resort which is very good & is highly recommended. I paid around 3.5-4k for a suite at that time, last year but for current rates I suggest you check with them here:

If you want to stay inside the park then you'll have to go to the Uttranchal tourism site & contact the Park authorities for staying there. But if you get a booking (If you're extremely luck, that is!) stay at Dhikala, the other two destinations are not so good.

If you need any further help feel free to ask.

tsk1979,
you can call 05947251376.
this is the telefax number of the booking
office in ramnagar.
alternatively, you can also book through
kendriya beopar mandal, near mandi house, delhi..
they sell complete packages too, which includes transportation
to and fro, all meals, jeep and elephant safari etc.
i do not have the phone number or address right now, though.

for booking dhikala from the ramangar office, you will need
to call them and ask when rooms are available and then send
them a draft for the same with the details of people who
will be visiting. one thing to remember is that you only get
a maximum of two nights stay in dhikala. if you want to
stay for a longer time, the way around it is that two consecutive bookings be made in different names.
but even then, you will have to drive out to dhangadi gate, which
is the point of entry to dhikala, and sign the entry register.

it is nice place, with the ramganga reservoir right next to it.
i have always enjoyed the place and hope you enjoy it too..
and here are a couple of fullmoon night shots from dhikala..
cheers

One of my friends tried a lot last year for Dikhala FRH, found poor response from these guys, claiming that the rooms were booked almost all the time. Is that the normal situation? Which is the best period when rooms are more easily available?

sadly that is quite true..
dhikala forest rest house is the most sought after as it
offers the best facilities and services. plus, booking is done on
a quota basis. delhi has its own, as does dehradun and ramanagar and
so on. this cuts down on the numbers of rooms available at different
outlets and hence the paucity of bookings.
however, being on a first name basis with the local conservator of forest will almost always find you a way in.

btw..april usually is a lean month as schools open and a lot of people make
reservations during the summer vacations.

cheers

I just called up the reservation office and was told they're booked at Dhikala and the other FRHs for ALL april! They said we could "try our luck" once we reach there. Since this is to be the start of a 10 day Uttaranchal trip, don't want to blow up 2.5-2k on some upscale resort when what I really care about is the rides into the forest with the kids

How's Kaladhungi ? Can one just drive upto Corbett and start the Safari from there? Other options ?
