EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES IN CORBETT NATIONAL PARK:
The Safari is the main stay of the Corbett experience but there are many other attractions around the place - the Sitabani Ashram in the virgin forest area, the Corbett Museum which houses memorabilia of the legendary Jim Corbett, the Garjia temple by the river, the Kaladungi falls and many more.

Longer drives would get you to the Lake District of Nainital and Or Queen of hills like Ranikhet, Almora and Kausani. Nainital is just an hour and half away from Retreat and can be looked as a day trip. Ranikhet with its awesome views of the snow capped Himalayas is three hours away. No where else would one get to experience the mysterious Forest, the tranquil lakes and the majestic Himalayas in one vacation - all just a couple of hours away.


ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES IN CORBETT NATIONAL PARK:

River Rafting : River rafting trips run through some of the most beautiful terrains that the Himalayas have to offer - from sandy white beaches, boulder-studded rapids, confluences of rivers, deep gorges and some of the most revered Indian temple towns. Whitewater rafting is a sport almost everyone, of any age, can enjoy. With expert guides and up-to-date equipment, it's quick and easy to learn the few rules that keep you safe, river-smart and ready for a "wild ride" of your own.
Angling : The Angling Experience is not about someone sitting by your shoulder telling you what to do. It is ALL to do with a very enjoyable weekend of fishing, shared with new and old friends on Ramganga River.
Back Packing : The scale of the Himalayas makes them the ultimate backpacking destination in the world. Nowhere else is such exalted beauty matched with such overwhelming remoteness.
Mountain Biking : Mountain Biking is not about being easy. The head is the strength of a biker. A biker with good head and weak legs has a better chance to win than the opposite. A good head is often question of concentration, and when you are concentrated you don't feel pain so much. Here bicycles are outsource ( subject to availability) and an accompanying guide takes you through the forest trail and the village trail in the Sitavani reserve forest area.
Parasailing : Parasailing is a popular sport in which the rider hitched to a parachute like canopy, known as a Parasail, is set aloft in the air. The Parasail is attached to a long towrope, which is pulled along, by a speeding form of transportation.
Rock Climbing : Up is never easy. But you face the rock. You let every finger and all your toes help find the way. Feel every muscle quake and quiver in battle with gravity. Find faith in ropes, in teammates, in yourself. Thereís no time for distraction, no room for your mind to wander. Itís you and a route. In rappelling one comes down the rocks, again with the help of ropes and karabiners. These are very good activities to help overcome height phobias. Come conquer the ROCK !

Abseiling/Slithering: In this activity, one wears a harness and slides from a bridge with a help of a rope into the river.
River Crossing & Traversing: Here, a rope is tied from one end of the river to the other and one crosses the river while hanging on to the rope. From the other set of parallel ropes, one comes back (traversing) standing on one rope and holding on to the other rope.
