  1. Take the road I mentioned. By next year I am expecting last one hour stretch will also be over by a good proportion. If you are going to Korla gate then my route wont have any problem at all.. Its smooth 8 hours drive. Sorry 7 hours drive. 1 hour is hell.
  2. Absolutely! Navegaon and Korala are two good gates to enjoy both buffer and Core zone. It was surprising to see people been staying over three three nights for core safari twice a day! That's passion.
  3. There are plenty of resorts around and also Government resorts are pretty good. Go in May.... the weather is hot for sure but the safari will get you see all animals ....
  4. I did click many pictures of the elephants, brown beers, bison, deer and birds but since its a smartphone , the clarity didnt come that well with zoom features. I didnt post them here. However I felt the frequency of spotting elephants across Gavi forest is like we spot people in city! Almost every where you can spot them ....
  5. The resort is indeed great and they are very accommodating. For sight seeing and other travel itineraries, periyar cabs helped me all through. Incase you are driving yourself, then of course its a different story altogether.
  6. I will ping you @sagar. The resort is a great place and the experience was really good!. The view, location and ambiance , everything was great.
  7. Ha Ha.. Thank you @ksa171983 I also promise, I will try to be more crisp and keep it short in coming posts!.... I love the way a lot of us post their travel stories here...
  8. @Ranger I will be honest! Initially I thought its expensive but after the first experience ever in safari /jungle, the kind of support and welcome we recieved from the resort, their team, kind of customer service done , it was good enough to go for the stay and also have an experience. However @Krish was in Tadoba recently too and he paid much less for stay at another gate. He can comment on that and we can surely try our luck there. He enjoyed the stay, got a view of the tiger and also had a great experience.
  9. Thank you For "This picture is crazy! " , who would say this is seasonal waterfall!!!

Airways to Thekkady Cochin, Madurai are two airports v
  11. @sagar one month time gap buddy however the pricing was much better after negotiation than what was first quoted or published on the website. Pictures are not mine and been submitted by resort, friends and other visitors. ? ? ?

  14. Tandra, it was so embarrassing to click pictures with my smartphone in front of the professional photographers who were capturing the moments in camera and lens like machine guns.
