First time when I visited Jim Corbett during an office trip, we stayed at Ranganga resort, which was near to Ramganga river in Jim Corbett region. It was in 2008, when I had posted some of the photographs at RAMGANGA . Later I realized that photographs were exported in wrong manner from the software I use to process them. Here I am again sharing the same photographs with some touch-ups and right export settings. Let's have a quick journey to Ramganga resort again...
This was one of the nice options to stay in Jim Corbett National Park, although it's located far away from actual wildlife sanctuary. Since it's just on river bank, people prefer to stay here. It's a property of Welcome group and very well maintained. Food was awesome and that was one of the reasons that I liked this place :) ... Although there are lot many other things to like about Ramganga Resort in Jim Corbett.
A shining Yellow Gladiolus was smiling near Restaurant of Ramganga Resort. It was a situated at an elevated place, from where half of the resort was visible.
There are different categories of rooms, suites and cottages. I loved the cottages !!! Ramganga resort has a nice swimming pool on one corner of a huge ground around the cottages. From this post, you might have guessed that I cherished the moments with gardening around this place. There were variety of flowers and colorful plants in the gardens around the huts in Ramganga Resort. It was quite easy to catch a glimpse of small birds and colorful butterflies...
Somehow placement of huts and rooms in the resort was not very much photography friendly :) ... After coming back fro this trip I found that I have hardly any photograph of huts/cottages or rooms of Ramganga resort. There were few near swimming pool and others were not very much noticeable. Or my camera was only focusing on colorful flowers and pants around the huts/cottages in Ranganga Resort.
Hibiscus - A Hanging Red Flower towards river boundary @ Ramganga Resort. Somehow none on this tree were blooming at that time or probably it was a hybrid variant. There is a closed area built for evening bon-fire, because of chilling breeze on riverbed. We had great time during evening and a DJ was also arranged for late night. Some talented folks in our team made the evening more beautiful. One of the gentleman was in full mood after few drinks.
During early morning, we had nature walk to a nearby hill from where Resort was completely visible with wonderful view of Ramganga River. During this walk we also noticed a beautiful bridge on this river, which was close to our Resort. After breakfast some of us went till that bridge to generally feel the place...
We had evening safari planned and moved towards Jim Corbett National Park. Now I have forgotten about the gate we entered through. But I don't think, that matter a lot. Main thing is to have patience and observe the surroundings. One of the friend noticed something similar to forest-cat behind the bushes, but it disappeared as we asked the driver to take back.
A Dhalia flower surrounded by multicolored flowers in the garden. In this post, I see some disconnect between photographs and description I am sharing. But for me these photographs made me remember that trip and at the same time, I don't have much idea about these flowers :)
A small bird sitting on a stone in the middle of Ramganga River. Bird watching was something , for which we needed not to wait for Safari inside the national park. There was a dense forest opposite to the resort and Ramganga River... In fact, the open ground inside the resort was full of birds during morning of second day...
A photograph of some metallic object installed for marking a boundary of irrigated land, which came on the way during morning walk to neighboring hill.
Here is the view of huge ground inside Ramganga Resort, Jim Corbett National Park, Uttranchal, INDIA. Family suites are here on left side of the photograph and bonfire area in the middle-top. Folks played football in this region and many times ball went into the river. River is actually on the right part of this ground.
Spider net on one of the street-lamp installed on the paths connecting different cottages and suites with Restaurant of Ramganga Resort.
Here is one of the photograph clicked during early morning, when dew-drops were shining on rose leaves. This shine looks amazing when sunlight has just touched the ground.
This is reception area of Ramganga Resort. Although none of us felt the need of approaching the staff at reception, because things were already in place most of the times. And in case needed, folks were roaming around the place and very responsive as well.
Gerbera Flowers were in abundance... With this Photo Journey to Ram Ganga Resort completes here and would try to share more with relevant photographs, if I could find. I had been to Jim Corbett three times and always stayed at different places. Second time, one of my friend had arranged a government guest house and third time we stayed at Tarangi Resort, which is again a nice place to stay at Jim Corbett National Park.
