What is tigersincorbett all about ?
TIGERS - WILDLIFE - and Corbett National Park
and how you can get to see it all ?
Tigersincorbett is unique because it offers a world class product
[Royal Bengal Tigers in their 100% natural environment]
amongst many other things
JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK is the 3rd Oldest national park in the world
We will take you there for fantastic holiday adventures to see these magnificent creatures but we will do so at local attraction prices not glossy brochure prices
Depending on your budget there is a every chance that you would stay at the same resort or hotel, and use the same safari company as you would if you booked with any top tour operator. The top operators dont offer a great choice of accommodations but Tigersincorbett offer every level just to suit you.
We cannot say if your guide would be so good as one of ours, but once you have made a booking through that operator your choice is gone, not that you are offered a choice in the first place with any of those top operators.
Your trips with Tigersincorbett are arranged for you, and if you go on tours or are taking jeep safaris, you will be cared for by caring locals, who are knowledgeable people, who have a keen and vested special personal interest in their local community, and its welfare, not to mention the now rare and beautiful wildlife of that area, which of course includes the Royal Bengal Tiger.
If you should choose to have a Canter safari to Dhikala zone, this is run by the park administration. We can make this booking for you but your guide will be park appointed. Canter safaris are nothing to do with Tigersincorbett
There are presently between 220 - 230 Royal bengal Tigers in Corbett NP

fabulous totally wild animals in their natural environment

we can do it for a lot less and without compromise on quality

That is something that is not going to change anytime soon

Yoga in Rishikesh
At the foothills of the Himalayas along the banks of the sacred Ganges is
Rishikesh is home to many ashrams
Namely. . . Vivekenanda - Sivananda - Osho - & Bihar school of yoga
There are many others too
Rishikesh is a fabulous place to experience classic Indian yoga.This discipline may be less precise for students used to the precision of western classes however having a more relaxed more spiritual atmosphere, it's an enjoyable place to discover what India offers.
Rishikesh is more relaxed than other parts of India
perhaps because people have religion on their minds ?
This peaceful ashram centre is certainly one of the more atmospheric places
in India. Most people are very friendly and are quick to say hello or namaste
As the sun rises from behind the mountains, and cuts through the fog, locals
wash in the river, as Hindu's they believe this can remove layers of karma.
As a pilgrimage point . . .
Rishikesh greets many devout Hindus and wandering "sadhus" or "Holy men"
With live temple chanting setting the atmosphere
Beginning around 4 am, the chants float across the water until well after dark
There are night time fire pujas
Ceremonial offerings where hundreds of camphor flame leaf boats float picturesquely on the river
The ashram centre located on either side of a footbridge over the river has great restaurants,
great bookshops, and e-mail places, so there is little need to visit the commercial centre
Being a holy city Rishikesh is totally vegetarian you won't even find an egg there.
Every year in the first week of February in Rishikesh is an International Yoga Festival
There is something for everyone and . . at all levels novice - Expert
Is this your idea of relaxing ?
Maybe you are an Angler
"Fishing" in the Himalayas doesnt begin with a cast.
First, you have to hike through the cliffs of the Sarda Gorge
where the slipping of a foothold can cost you your life.
Then you have to walk past the tiger in the night."
or so someone famous once said .
Well . . . That certainly used to be the case !
Now we use Jeeps to get you where you want to be !
Or. . . you can still walk its up to you

The"Tiger" of the river
is the finest freshwater sporting fish in the whole World.

The second this fish takes the bait, it wont be the only one "Hooked"
A large powerful fish it is the undisputed king of the Himalayan rivers
It is the largest member of the Carp family
Mahseer means Great mouth in India
Experienced anglers have even recommended sea fishing tackle
in favour of regular or even carp rods when going after these monsters
When they strike they strike very hard Heading straight for fast water taking
with them very much line. They are extremely powerful opponents and will
need much skill and every bit as much strength and determination to land one
As much as 150 - 250 meters of line can quickly be gone from your reel
It will drag you through the water and around huge rocks in its struggle
You will know when you have hooked one for sure

to your friends back home
From the sheer excitment of the battle
To the magnificence of the surrounds of the Himalayan Vista

In rivers where you have tranquil stretches turning into rapids
From Shallows through to very deep water coursing through gorges
carving away at the rocks as it runs through the landscape
creating yet more of the stunning scenery that is so beautiful

and hearing the gentle lapping, to the
loud "ROAR" of the river creates an image
that will stay with you for evermore
