A great opportunity to observe, learn about and photograph the Indian Elephants. A very good birdlife also gives many opportunities to do some great bird photography. You will understand the nuances of wildlife photography. How best to use the available light to create high impact images. How to posit yourself properly and wait for the right moment rather than go trigger happy. A lot of interactions on the field and off it regarding compositions and post-processing will help you to up your photography skills many notches.
Jim Corbett National Park, spanning over 520.8 sq.km. is one of the most pristine habitats of the Indian Subcontinent. A pride of India, once the backyard of the legendary Jim Corbett, lying in the famed and beautiful Kumaon region, this national park is marked by an amazing landscape, with many numbers of streams, rivers, and ridges crisscrossing each other.
Corbett is home to more than 550 species of animal life. It is one of the richest in terms of bird life and has been declared as an Important Bird Area ( IBA ) by Birdlife International. Tall and beautiful Sal trees make up most of the forest, while the rest is just beautiful grasslands.
We will be visiting Dhikala, the most pristine, picturesque and iconic part of Corbett National Park. There are many things that make Dhikala unique and attractive to nature and wildlife enthusiasts. It is a habitat with the water body, grassland and saal trees that reach for the sky, where one can see the foothills of Himalayan range in the backdrop. In the summers, the place comes alive with elephants migrating in the grassland of Dhikala. One can witness hundreds of elephants feeding in the grass, splashing water, fighting, running, mud bathing, mating or taking care of the newly born juveniles in the magical backdrop of burnt trees and the Himalayan range.
Whether you are a hobbyist or a serious photographer, a natural history lover or someone looking for artistic expressions via photography, someone who enjoys birding or likes to document rare species like yellow throated marten and the grass-bird or just a nature lover who enjoys being in the lap of mother nature, Dhikala is sure to leave you spellbound.
