At Corbett TR, Ramganga River provides lifeline to the flora and fauna. Resident tigress "Paarwali" prowls the bank of the river. We found her stalking a large group of Sambar, she made her move after a while but the experienced Sambars anticipated this. They ran for their life towards the other side of the river. She gave up and decided to cross the river calmly under the watch of the ever alert Sambars in the fast reducing but still magical winter light. The Sambars live to see another day!
