Why to visit Jim Corbett National Park

In Uttarakhand's Nainital district, Jim Corbett National Park is part of the larger Corbett Tiger Reserve, which is a Project Tiger Reserve. The tiger richness of Corbett's magnificent scenery is well-known and legendary. Corbett has the distinction of being India's oldest and most prominent National Park, having been established in 1936 as Hailey National Park. It is also remembered as the site of the 1973 launch of Project Tiger. This one-of-a-kind tiger region is best known as the father of Project Tiger in India, which was established to safeguard India's most endangered species and the Royal Tigers. 

It has a total area of 520 square kilometres, with hills, marshy depressions, riverine belts, meadows, and a huge lake. It is one of India's few tiger reserves that allows overnight stays in the National Park. In the park, nature watching and animal viewing are done on elephant back and in an open four-wheeler Jeep. The national park is one of the most popular places for wildlife enthusiasts, as it is home to a healthy population of tigers as well as uncommon species such as otters and the endemic fish-eating crocodile. The most popular location is Dhikala, which is located on the edge of the vast Patil Dun valley.

Special Tip
