Drive from Lucknow to Nainital - Kausani - Jim Corbett and back to Lucknow
Total KM: 1160
Day 4: Anyway, so the whole night it rained, and we were disappointed because we thought we wont be able to see the Himalayan range next morning. But unbelievable thing happened the next morning. We got up and the magnificent Himalayas greeted us in full glory. Even the locals said, this might be one of the best sightings in some time. We were undoubtedly lucky, and there I was with my Canon SLR, shooting since the time I got up. I just couldn’t help shooting as many pics as I could for these snow-clad peaks. Left kausani after breakfast and headed towards jim-corbett. We took a route less travelled rather hardly traveled. Because most of the people either travel to jim corbet from nanital or to nainital. Hardly anybody ever does the stretch of kausani to jim Corbett via tarikhet and bhatrojkhan, and we knew why was it true. Firstly, the hilly terrain was the toughest of its kind I have seen. So many places there was landslide. That route was not even good for bus travel, I wonder how come our Tata Indigo managed that stretch. It was deserted with deadly terrifying view across narrow stretches of road and very few vehicles. Anyway, finally we reached jim Corbett safely, and that is what matters. The twist and turns were very difficult for my wife, she has the problem of motion sickness and I knew it was going to be tough for her. But she recouped, we took some breaks and she managed to compose herself till the end of the mountainous track. Reached our resort and went for a nature walk in the evening.
