1. TAKE A BREAK IN THE JUNGLE OF JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK
Jim Corbett, what a sight to see! Surrounded by the banks of the Ramganga River, surrounded by Sal forests and long pastures, the park is at the foot of the Himalayas, making it one of the wild experiences in India. I’ve been there and done, so here’s all you need to know to plan your weekend trip to Jim Corbett.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK?
I’m sure, like many others, the first thing that surpasses your head if someone says Jim Corbett is a tiger lazy on the dusty trails in the park. But the national park is not just about tigers; It houses a record of 580 species of birds, 488 species of plants, 25 species of reptiles, and 50 species of mammals. These are reasons for visiting India’s oldest national park.
Jungle Safari: One of my best experiences was to watch the birds of different types of hops from branch to branch. I was fortunate enough to see a Bengal tiger as soon as we entered the deeper areas of Dhikala Zone. We also saw elephants, Sambar deer, Pigeon, Crocodile in the jungle.
Explore Corbett Museum: It is an old bungalow belonging to the famous tiger conservationist, Jim Corbett. It has now been transformed into a museum. The carers have kept Jim Corbett’s memorabilia, personal belongings, antiquities, and letters written by him and rare pictures safely.
River Rafting: Oh boy! River rafting is such an adventurous sport that you must try before you die, why not now? The cold, soothing water of the Kosi River literally rejuvenated my soul. It’s time for you to free yourself too.
Corbett waterfall: The 66 meter high waterfall is such a beautiful sight that I will remember for a long time.
Fishing: I’m not a big fisherman, but it is very interesting for those who like this fishing area of Kosi has many fishing camps.
BEST TIME TO VISIT JIM CORBETT
However, the park is open for tourists throughout the year, but the best time to visit is from mid-November to mid-June, as all Corbett tourist areas are open.
HOW TO REACH JIM CORBETT FROM DELHI?
Although you can travel from Delhi or train by train, but traveling from an AC coach is completely different from March when the weather is pleasant. The park is well connected to the road, so you can rent a car from Delhi. Ramnagar Railway Station in the Nainital district is approx. 68 km from Jim Corbett.
Distance and time taken: 250 km | 5 hours
Ideal travel time: A 1 night / 2 day trip is enough to cover the main parts of Jim Corbett and try all the adventure activities.
HOW MUCH DOES THE TRIP COST?
Per person on a twin basis you will spend about INR 5,500, including stay, food, transport, jeep safari, some adventure activities, sights and more. Travel with a large group of friends to save more.

2. THE TRANQUIL VALLEYS OF KANATAL
Right in the middle of the Shivalik series and the long pines, Kanatal is the place where every weary soul wants to revive. This small, sunlit city, lost in its own world, remains relatively intact. So while everyone flows to Mussoorie, take a detour to avoid the crowds and get lost in the quiet hills of Kanatal.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM KANATAL?
Adventure Activities: Our group of friends has chosen mountaineering and speed boating. You can also walk, zip-lining, jet skiing, surfing, abseiling, etc.
A walk through the temple of Surkanda Devi: I decided to take an easy trip of 2 km to the temple dedicated to the Sati goddess at an altitude of 3030 m above sea level. It was a refreshing experience and not at all difficult.
A photographic walk to the Kodai Forests: As a photographer of nature landscapes, I find at least one of these places during all my travels. Kodai Forest is a pure pleasure for photographers and nature lovers. You should take a 6 km stretch of jungle with beautiful beautiful valleys and natural spring.
A visit to New Tehri: If you are interested in seeing the Tehri Dam (a lot of beauty), you should visit. You see a giant dam with stagnant green water and high mountains surrounding it.
BEST TIME TO VISIT KANATAL
The best part of Kanatal is that it has a magical touch that allows you to enjoy all year round.
HOW TO GET TO KANATAL FROM DELHI?
You can drive from Delhi to Kanatal, but instead of driving to Kanatal, I would suggest that you save your energy to explore the place. Our group took a bus from Delhi to Kanatal for an easy and comfortable trip. If you do not get a direct bus from Delhi to Kanatal, you can take a bus to the Dehradun board. There are many local buses that run from Dehradun ISBT to Kanatal.
Distance and duration: 320 km | 07h 40 min
Ideal travel time: To explore the place and try all the exciting activities, one night / 2 days is more than enough.
HOW MUCH DOES THE TRIP COST?
No more than 5,000 INR per person based on twins, including meal, stay and transportation. You might have to shed something else for adventurous activities.

3. DewaliDAY PLAN AT BLUE SKY OF LANSDOWNE
Have you ever experienced pure blessing? It feels like this in Lansdowne. A place completely untouched by commercialization and all worldly things. People who have been to Lansdowne will agree that it’s a place to go if everything you want for your weekend is peace. Also pulling and camping in Lansdowne during March-June is an experience you must have.
WHY TO EXPECT FROM LANSDOWNE?
Camping: Our group had decided to say NO to hotels and yes to camp, and that’s what made the difference. The trip would not have been so memorable without this big decision.
Bhulla Tal: Personally, I liked to sit by and enjoy the peace and the music of the birds. But you can take a short, fun boat trip in the valley.
Pull to Snow Viewpoint: If you think you travel to Lansdowne during Dewali, do not mean a snowfall, then you have to go to the Snow Viewpoint. Although it is a bit tough, you can catch a glimpse of snowy mountains.
Look at the soft sunshine on the ridge: As cliché sounds like sounds, I think that sunsets are the most beautiful scenes of nature. You can see the sky change from blue to red to orange to yellow on the edge of a cliff.
Bird watching: I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed watching the migratory birds, such as rosy shellfish, red crocodiles, and a common merganser, sometimes in a puddle and sometimes on the branches of long pine trees.
Kalagarh Tiger Reserve: If you’re lucky you get a kite of big cats; if you are not, you have all the beauty of the jungle. I did not feel lucky that day.
BEST TIME TO VISIT LANSDOWNE
To be honest, you can always visit Lansdowne and you will love it. If you are someone who loves green velvety mountains under the blue sky decorated with clouds, March to June is the best time to visit Lansdowne.

Take an AC or luxury bus from the ISBT Kashmiri Gate to Kotdwar. Later you can take a shared taxi from Kotdwar to Lansdowne, which costs about INR 100 per person.

4. SET YOUR MIND FREE AND LET YOUR HEART FLY IN RISHIKESH
Rishikesh is a country of yogi and meditation, where people from all over the world are looking for peace and enlightenment. It is equally popular for its adventurous sports and camping. It is also a paradise for travelers, which means it’s alive throughout the year. Visit it during any season and you will definitely be in love with.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM RISHIKESH?
Adventure Sports: I have tried river rafting, kayaking and flying fox. There were many other sports like rappelling, bungee jumping, flying fox, giant swing, cliff jumping, mountain biking, pulling etc.
Yoga & Meditation: Nobody has ever left Rishikesh without learning a few yoga asanas or meditation tips. It did it too. Do not worry about meditation only.
Triveni Ghat: I asked a ghd florist about the importance of Triveni Ghat, and I was told that the Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati convergence makes it so important. Do not forget to take a holy dip. Also visit Rishi Kund and Raghunath Temple nearby.
Shop something: I brought some Rishikesh souvenirs home. You can also buy beautiful wooden decorative items and murals for your home.
Parmarth Ghat Aarti: Rishikesh is well-known for his spectacular evening ghat-side Aartis. Oh boy! You can click on the most beautiful pictures during the archipelago.
