Man eater’s trail
This trek traces three of Jim Corbett’s famous tiger shoots at Talla Des, Chuka and Thak, the latter being the last man eater shot by Corbett. Most of the setting is along the Kali river which forms the border between India and Nepal. The remoteness of these places still instills the thrill and adventure of trekking along trails which Corbett had haunted nearly a century ago. The Kali river gives the added advantage of excellent angling opportunities.
