Corbett Tiger Reserve is closed during 15 June - 15 November due to access problems during the monsoon. Clients wishing to visit the Reserve should therefore plan their trip to coincide with the open period. Please note that elephants for tiger-tracking can only be booked when you have arrived inside Corbett Tiger Reserve. We do our utmost to arrange this for our guests, but cannot guarantee the availability of elephants at the time of your visit.
Clients wishing to visit Pangot, and other areas above 2000 metres altitude, should note that cold temperatures and snow may be encountered during the months of December to February. Clients should plan to visit these areas during October-November and March-June.
Please note that these itineraries can be rearranged to suit individual or group requirements, subject to practical considerations such as weather, timing and transportation, and sufficient advance notice.

If you would like to spend a shorter or longer time at any location, this can easily be arranged. Just let us know your requirements, and we will arrange a tailor-made program for you!
Camp Corbett reserve the right to change any planned itinerary due to changed circumstances unforeseen at the time of booking. This could include religious or political unrest, earthquake, landslides, floods, and forest fire, or other unforeseen circumstances. Kumaon Exploration and its Associates Camp Corbett and Blaze-A-Trail Adventures will do its best to meet your requirements at all times, subject to the effects of these influences. We also reserve the right to change our published prices due to currency movements or unforeseen increase in costs. However, once we have invoiced you, this is the price you will owe us, and we will not levy any extra charges.
Before commencing this itinerary, we strongly advise you to have adequate personal accident and medical insurance cover. Please contact your physician about the latest medical advice for travel to north India.Your itinerary may involve walking, elephant riding and jeep travel in rough jungle terrain, and there is a risk of encountering wild animals whose behaviour can be unpredictable. Road travel in India entails a greater risk than in most western countries. Your guide or leader will try to minimise the risk of personal injury at all times, but Kumaon Exploration and Camp Corbett cannot accept responsibility for any accident to its clients unless negligence can be proven to exist on our part. Booking a program with us denotes your acceptance of these terms.
We cannot guarantee the sighting of any animal or bird species. The big cats in particular are extremely wary of humans and tend to keep in heavy cover. Seeing one should be considered an exceptional experience. You are more likely to find fresh footprints (pugmarks) on the jungle trails and riverbanks.
Please note that although accomodation in Forest Rest Houses in Corbett Reserve and elsewhere is basic and clean, it may not be up to modern standards you are used to. Our lodges and the forest rest houses we use are not hotels, and do not have all of the facilities of hotels. Electricity may not be available, or may be unreliable. An intrepid spirit and sense of humour helps!
Camp Corbett and Mountain Quail Camps have modern bathrooms, hot water and ceiling fans, although power supplies can sometimes be erratic. Our lodges provide ample tasty Indian and western food, but do not have a la carte menus. Vegetarians can easily be catered for. You will not go hungry!
