Corbett Wild River Access Resort

Video Review

We visited Jim Corbett National Park in October this year after 9 years. Corbett National Park is a thickly forested region in the Kumaon region in the foothills of Himalayas. The national park is India’s prominent tiger reserve and named after Jim Corbett, the famous tiger hunter-turned-conservationist.

This time, we stayed at Corbett Wild River Access Resort, at Ramnagar Uttarakhand. It’s a 3-star resort with price in the Dhikuli area of Corbett National Park. The best thing about this resort is its majestic grounds. If you are staying here, definitely opt for a park-view cottage.

Bonfires are held every night. And its a good place for a young group who want to sit/dance around a bonfire with snacks and drinks. The swimming pool is good, and a lot of families and friend groups were having fun in it.

However, the place really lacks in certain aspects. The room quality is not good. Apart from seepage in walls and curtain rods falling down, the TV was not working, and taps were leaking. The plus point is that someone does turn up whenever you raise an issue, but there’s nothing much they could do because the cottages need major repairs, not stopgap fixes.

It almost seemed that the beautiful grounds are maintained by one hotel group and the cottages by another – so different is their level of maintenance.

The approach to the Kosi River is not suitable if you have senior citizens or kids with you. This was in contrast to other Corbett hotels in the Dhikuli area, such as Tiger Camp, Corbett Hideaway, and Corbett River View Retreat, in which I have stayed previously. Usually, you can easily stroll down to the river.

This place has a lot of potential if developed properly.

I have been reading voraciously since the age of five when I first discovered the joys of reading. I would lap up anything in print. Unrolling an emptied newspaper cone with one hand, stuffing roasted peanuts in my mouth with the other, all the while devouring the printed content on the cone with my eyes, was one of my first experiences in hedonistic pleasure. In fact, sometimes I feel that I am on an adventurous journey through the secret dreamworld of other people's imaginations, interspersed with occasional visits to my own life to attend events like graduation, first job, marriage, and so on. As a true-blue reader, I think I am uniquely qualified to comment on and critique other people's works of labour. I can tell exactly what puts the average reader to sleep, what sets their pulse racing, and what has them salivating for more. Write to me at
