CORBETT HIDDEN SECRET
Explore the Lesser Travelled Trails like Jim Corbett
MARCH 15 -19, 2023
Are you forever mesmerised with the wilderness of Corbett by traversing in this mystic landscape in the cozy comforts of your safari vehicle? Nature Wanderers and Team Jamoon is all geared up so that you can step out of that vehicle and explore the real essence of these magical woods on foot following the footsteps of Jim Corbett who would have once roamed in the pristine Ramganga valley penning down his soulful angling diaries in the form of ‘The Fish of my Dreams’ (excerpts from Man Eaters of Kumaon).
A hike in pristine Saal forests, a walk alongside the sparkling Ramganga that snakes through a myriad of riverbeds understanding the scripts of the wilderness that walk the pebbled and sandy ramps - this Corbett experience is designed to connect your soul with the hidden secrets of wild Kumaon.
Key Program Highlights
Learn to read the forest floor and set up your own trail camera traps. A workshop on the basics of DSLR camera trapping by Canon EOS Ambassador and Author - Shivang Mehta
Being on foot in a forest gives you the freedom of exploration. The walking safaris designed in this program range from 3kms to 8kms on a daily basis and will help you to understand the terrains of the woods of Kumaon. The area is studded with bird life and birding during the hikes along with usage of the bird hide would be a regular feature of the program.
From Stills to Motion
Explore the capacity of your DSLR and mirrorless cameras beyond the capacity of still images as we give you a hands on guidance on the various features so that next time you step out on a game drive in any forest, you carry back neatly shot video memories to share with your friends and followers.
