The Corbett’s Heart: Dhikala

Dhikala is the most sought-after safari area of Corbett, located in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, India. It offers the opportunity to live close to the Dhikala grasslands, which are home to a variety of wildlife, including tigers, Asiatic elephants, leopards, hog deer, barking deer, and sambar deer. Additionally, over 400 bird species are found here. Dhikala Corbett is heaven for wildlife aficionados thanks to its captivating environment of grasslands along the banks of the Ramganga and the undulating hills of the Shivaliks. Booking must be made at least 90 days in advance due to the woodland rest home at Dhikala’s restricted capacity. One benefit of residing on the forest campus is that one can spend as much time as possible admiring the natural beauty of the surroundings and searching for the elusive Terai cat.

Optimal Period to Visit Dhikala

Dhikala is open every day from 15 November until 15 June. For the remaining months, Dhikala is closed due to the monsoon.

From December through March, the weather is consistently cool and pleasant. Due to this, the majority of tourists travel to Dhikala between December and March. Although the months of April through June are hot, it is easier to see wild animals then. Animals are frequently visible near rivers and other man-made watering holes.

There are just two forest rest houses in the Dhikala Corbett zone: the Gairal and Dhikala rest homes. The other woodland rest houses have a kitchen connected and require visitors to provide their raw food. Both rest houses serve buffet meals. We must inform you that the Dhikhla Forest Rest House is the oldest and most historic building constructed more than a century ago, even though you are anticipating an exciting vacation to Corbett.

You are only permitted to roam around the walled portion of the campus of your rest house because the zone forbids you from entering the national park. You cannot request a specific time from your woodland rest lodge; safaris only occur at specified times. The best timings for the safari are determined by the forest department, and they vary according to the seasons. We advise you to check before making travel plans to Jim Corbett.
