I highly recommend contacting Saurabh Agrawal of The Indian Voyage to assist with arrangements. He is incredible! He arranged a private taxi for me from the hotel in Delhi to Corbett National Park. Great driver, punctual, very clean car, good English. He also made all my reservations for the Dhikala Forest Rest house, early morning elephant ride, jeep driver and...

Alll details by me is subjected to 22 December 2016. I missed the booking of Dhikala but managed to get a canter safari. The property is just awesome. Getting a booking is similar to get a lottery. If a couple is travelling, you will take less time to fill up online form and chances to get the booking is higher....

Dhikala was straight from the old times and I found it a very romantic place. It was also full of exoticism; monkeys were playing in the yard and place was surrounded by electric fence. We loved our days here! Guides were really professional and vegetarian food was excellent, which was a big surprise for me, normally I eat meat. Notice...

When we first decided to visit Jim Corbett, some acquaintances suggested we should stay at the Govt Forest rest houses (FRH) and experience the tiger reserve from inside, and conduct our safaris, than stay outside at some resort. When we started looking for ways to book this FRH, we came across the 'The Indian Voyage holidays' group. Courtesy:- some travelers...

Dhikala is the best forest rest house out of the 4 inside Dhangari gate of Jim Corbett national park. It is situated 30 kms inside the main gate and falls under the core area. Dhikala has multiple small cottages and 2 big buildings (old and new frh). View from old frh is best as you can directly get a view...

Located inside the core of Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve, the Dhikala forest rest house is the best location to stay in the park. It is located near to two most happening spots where big game action often happens. Dhikala grasslands and the Ramganga riverbank - The Sambar road. Best places where tiger & elephant action builds up suddenly and presents...

We stayed in the Dhikala Forest Rest House from 16/11/2016 to 18/11/2016. We boarded the Kathgodam Shatabdi Exp. which departs from New Delhi at 6:00 am and got down at Haldwani around 11:15 am. I booked a rental taxi through Kathgodam Taxi online ( +91 73517 21351) from Haldwani to Ramnagar. Their service was very prompt. Mr. Ramesh Chandra (...

Having said all these.Dhikala FRH is located at a whopping 40 Kms inside the Dhikala Zone of Jim Corbett National Park.The location...

i visited this place on Nov,2010 & Dec 2013 ,Dec2014, the elephant ride was amazing, the grassland of Dhikala was so beautiful,food buffet in canteen just too good, we got hutment rooms,very spacious,clean,well furnished, But nowadays Corbett National Park is out of reach. The total system of online booking (corbettonline.uk.gov.in) is just eye wash, nothing but farse.

“Dhikala rest house is your best choice for seeing the big cats. They are simple and spartan. Tasty food at the restaurant.”

“New FRH is best as it closer to the gate where the safari ends/start. During Fullmoon nights in clear weather, the stay becomes the best,”
