It’s Friday, the day of the week that is highly revered by all the office goers, for it is on this day, that the dreadful weekdays turn into auspicious weekends.

It’s Thursday night and I finally reached home after being stuck in traffic for two hours! I slumped on the couch, closed my eyes and took a deep breath. Right then, an idea hit me. Suddenly energised, I leapt at my phone and text my comrades-in-arms, my two best friends, “Road trip to Corbett. Get your bikes ready.

As autumn approaches and Sun plays a game of ‘hide and seek’ in the sky, Jim Corbett looks picture perfect. The forest all around has come alive, birds are singing new songs with the crickets adding to the background score and our animal friends are coming out of their hide-outs.

See Jim Corbett Rejuvenate in Monsoons
It has been a month since monsoons arrived in Jim Corbett, and we couldn’t be happier. See, we love the summers and the fun and frolic associated with it. We also wouldn’t mind getting a tan, though given our typical Indian complexion, nobody would notice. But the rains bring out the child in us, and this year hasn’t been different. Summers are when every living soul at Jim Corbett looks for a shade to rest.
Four reasons that will make your visit to The Golden Tusk in August special
August is upon us, and we have been back to the grind for a month now. Most of us are grateful for the monsoons making our daily commute to work pleasant. All this pleasantness only makes us wish for more! Perhaps if you could go to a weekend
