The only thing which came to my mind, while planning a trip to Kumaon, Uttarakhand in India was Jim Corbett’s book “Man-eaters of Kumaon” and how I had enlivened his descriptions of the Indian jungles. His recreations of flora, fauna and the tiger hunts still itched to my mind, I kept envisioning Kumaon through his words – dense, sacred and full of surprises. Nestled in the shadow of Nanda Devi Range, Kumaon is a bounty of nature and an adobe to many species of birds. Having seen only the Arid region and wetland birds, mountain species is what we really looked forward to. We planned a trip to Uttarakhand, to enjoy the hills and nature. Our Kumaon trip was divided in 2 parts: Relax and unwind with nature in Nainital/Pangot and experience the adrenaline rush in the Jim Corbett National Park while chasing the tigers.
