Jim Corbett National Park is one of the favorite spots for a weekend getaway for many Delhi-NCR residents. And now the good news is, a trip to this favorite spot of yours is going to be a lot more quicker than before. This may wonder you how? This has become possible by the great effort of Uttarakhand Government. The state government has decided to open a new entry gate to the reserve forest through Kotdwar.
This latest development of opening the new gate will save at least one hour’s drive of cut down at least 80 km of distance from your travel. This indeed gives us a reason to rejoice.
State Environment and Forest Minister Harak Singh Rawat, referring to this development, recently said that the new route will soon be accessible for tourists visiting the national park for wildlife safari through Pakharo gate at Kotdwar. Till date, the only route that was available for the travellers was via Ramnagar.
While the distance from Delhi to Ramnagar is 280 km, the distance from Delhi to Pakharo will cut down to 200 km. This means a significant relief for all those travellers out there who postpone their trip just because of the distance.
This will not only provide the travellers coming to Delhi-NCR a much quicker route, but will also boost ecotourism in the Garhwal division.
