Dhikala was straight from the old times and I found it a very romantic place. It was also full of exoticism; monkeys were playing in the yard and place was surrounded by electric fence. We loved our days here! Guides were really professional and vegetarian food was excellent, which was a big surprise for me, normally I eat meat. Notice...

When we first decided to visit Jim Corbett, some acquaintances suggested we should stay at the Govt Forest rest houses (FRH) and experience the tiger reserve from inside, and conduct our safaris, than stay outside at some resort. When we started looking for ways to book this FRH, we came across the 'The Indian Voyage holidays' group. Courtesy:- some travelers...

Dhikala is the best forest rest house out of the 4 inside Dhangari gate of Jim Corbett national park. It is situated 30 kms inside the main gate and falls under the core area. Dhikala has multiple small cottages and 2 big buildings (old and new frh). View from old frh is best as you can directly get a view...

Located inside the core of Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve, the Dhikala forest rest house is the best location to stay in the park. It is located near to two most happening spots where big game action often happens. Dhikala grasslands and the Ramganga riverbank - The Sambar road. Best places where tiger & elephant action builds up suddenly and presents...

We stayed in the Dhikala Forest Rest House from 16/11/2016 to 18/11/2016. We boarded the Kathgodam Shatabdi Exp. which departs from New Delhi at 6:00 am and got down at Haldwani around 11:15 am. I booked a rental taxi through Kathgodam Taxi online ( +91 73517 21351) from Haldwani to Ramnagar. Their service was very prompt. Mr. Ramesh Chandra (...

Having said all these.Dhikala FRH is located at a whopping 40 Kms inside the Dhikala Zone of Jim Corbett National Park.The location...

i visited this place on Nov,2010 & Dec 2013 ,Dec2014, the elephant ride was amazing, the grassland of Dhikala was so beautiful,food buffet in canteen just too good, we got hutment rooms,very spacious,clean,well furnished, But nowadays Corbett National Park is out of reach. The total system of online booking (corbettonline.uk.gov.in) is just eye wash, nothing but farse.

Awesome location next to the Ram ganga river. Govt. guest house with very basic accommodation and most of the rooms are not maintained properly. The positive is that the same is bang in the middle of the forest and if you are a naturalist you are gonna love the place/location. Rooms are desperately in need of renovation and maintenance.
