  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Uttarakhand Forest Department Starts Using Drones for Crocodile Census.

Uttarakhand News


The Uttarakhand Forest Department is using drones to carry out a census of crocodiles for the first time in the country. The project has been launched in Terai East Forest division of Kumaon. Crocodiles are found mainly in Terai region in Uttarakhand which includes Corbett Tiger Reserve and nearby areas. Parts of Haridwar district, Udham Singh Nagar and Lansdowne forest division. One of the conservator of forests, Parag Madhukar Dhakate said that this drone method will enhance the accuracy and reduce the risks of error and conflict in the count. The census has been started in winters as crocodiles often come out of their aquatic habitat to bask in the sun.

Earlier, the crocodiles were counted manually with the use of binoculars. Another method involves catching a crocodile and marks its tail to avoid errors or double counting. Crocodile population was estimated at 123 according to the last census of the species which was conducted in 2008. Project associate, Vipul Maurya, biodiversity conservation and Ganga rejuvenation project from Wildlife Institute of India, who was involved in the crocodile census in 2009, said that Sometimes, in small water bodies, lights are used to count the number of crocodiles by counting the number of pair of glittering eyes.

He said that the numbers are confirmed by transect method. A transect is a line such as a rope or a string placed in the ground, across a habitat. The number of organisms of each species can be observed and recorded at regular intervals along transect. The average count is taken into consideration after repeated checks, he added. Dhakate said that drones will reduce errors in counting and also allow counting in those areas which are not easily accessible.
