The Dhikala FRH is the most sought after rest house as it is located at the core of the zone. It will take around 1 and a half hours to reach Dhikala FRH from the Dhangarhi entry gate. All other forest rest houses are located on the way to Dhikala FRH.

In order to make a night stay at the forest rest houses in the Dhikala zone, you have to book your accommodation well in advance before visiting the Corbett as there is a very high rush of wildlife tourists for the night stay inside the forest and the availability of rooms is limited. The Indian and SAARC nationals can book accommodation in the forest lodges of Dhikala maximum 46 days in advance, while the visitors of other nationals can make the accommodation booking a maximum of 91 days in advance. Along with the accommodation booking, you also have to hire the Safari Jeep to visit the FRH.
