WHY MUNIDIYAPANI FOREST REST HOUSE

Most of the people visit Mundiyapani FRH just Because their Booking agent Refer this place as the Most Famous Dhikala Forest rest house is not available due to huge demand and popularity of it as Tiger Sighting is Guarantee there.

But, Few Visitors Like me visit Mundiyapani FRH just because they love to explore the Deep and Dence Forest of Jim Corbett National Park while staying in a more than 100 years old colonial clean and luxury bungalow. Mundiyapani FRH is also a Perfect Place for Bird Watching as Corbett park itself contains 650 Different species of Birds.

BEAUTY AROUND MUNDIYAPANI FRH

After we check in to FRH we don’t find anyone there for 5 minutes as the caretaker Mr. Amar Chand was busy watching and calculating the situation from 100 meters far(from a forest fire control room) which is situated just another side of the road. Just After Amar Chand Ji fully realize that we are his today night stay guest he starts running towards us and within a second he cross the little river and within a moment he was with us.

JHIRNA ZONE JEEP SAFARI JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK

Jhirna zone jeep safari in Jim Corbett national park is really a must-visit place for tourist as this zone also has tigers and they can be easily sighted and this zone also has one forest rest house and Jhirna river which you one must have to cross during jeep safari this zone is almost open throughout the year for tourist.

"<yoastmark

I have done this zone safari in august 2020 with my 3 more friends. we reached Ramnagar in the night from Dehradun via car. we stay overnight in a resort and next day early morning we headed towards our Jhirna zone safari in Dhela Range, Actually, Jhirna and Dhela zone are in same area direction (West side of Ramnagar) But we have stayed in a resort on Nainital Highway which is in the opposite direction and 25 km far from Jhirna Zone gate.

So, our driver Charge 200 Rupay extra for this distance but we don’t mind paying him as we also understand this genuine charge.

 

"<yoastmark

Soon we start out jeep safari we encounter this Hut inside villagers farm which looks really authentic with cow and buffalo tied there.

And we move ahead and reached Jhirna zone after 45 minutes Ride-on main concrete road we found ourself on the main Jhirna zone gate.

As we were travelling in a lockdown session and due to corona guidelines we have to wear a mask and follow all covid rules and regulation and main forest guard check our documents and allow us after confirmation.

Our jeep safari enters inside the buffer zone of Jhirna forest rest house our excitements keep increasing and I start making a youtube video for my youtube channel – SUBHASH CHAUDHARY VLOGS

Here is the link of Jhirna zone jeep safari Jim Corbett national park

you can enjoy the detailed information video about our jeep safari to Jhirna of Corbett national park in monsoon.

 

                                                                                                                                 

JHIRNA ZONE VS DHELA ZONE

Both the zones have same entry gate called Dhela gate and just after entering the Dhela gate we come across the Dhela zone which is a buffer zone means it is close to villages and Tribal community can be seen roaming inside with there buffalo but as we get more inside we can see little wildlife like wild boar, axis deer and even tiger pug mark which shows the presence of Big cats in the Dhela zone itself.

Dhela zone is a circuit which normally jeep safari drivers cover in anticlockwise means we enter from one side and exit from other by taking around and at the end of the Dhela zone safari we also come across a beautiful grassland and a watchtower on the edge of it which looks more amazing during summer as the grass is very low and one can see till far.

While Jhirna zone is after crossing Dhela zone means to Enter Dhela zone we have to enter in the forest on our left side from the main road while for Jhira we have to keep moving straight for many kilometres. Jhirna zone is Little more Inside as Compared to Dhela zone. Jhirna zone also Lies in Buffer zone of Corbett national park but one can not see any tribal community or domestic animals like buffalo inside Jhirna zone and presence of wildlife is good there tiger presence can be felt easily. During my jeep safari in Jhirna zone, I heard tiger roar clearly and saw axis deer, sambhar deer, hog deer, barking deer, white face monkey etc..

If you are confused to select between the two I must say go with Jhirna Zone First and then Dhela Zone because both the zone are containing Different geographical area and map which must be visited at least once. In the forest who knows which animal can be encounter at what day and time. Many times it happens that people are disappointed as they don’t have a glimpse of a tiger in Dhikala zone but visitors on Dhela zone jeep safari are lucky enough.
