Jim Corbett National Park has gained popularity due to the extensive work done by the famous conservationist and writer Jim Corbett. Established in 1936, the national park has been named after its founder, Jim Corbett. Once known as the Hailey National Park, this popular reserve has the distinction of being the first to be awarded the status and the title of national park.

With the help and support from World Wildlife Fund, the park came under the aegis of Project Tiger in 1973. Spread over an area of about 520 sq. km, out of which 330 sq. km forms the core area, the park supports mixed deciduous and Sal forests, and Savannah grasslands. Owing to its location in the Himalayan low lands, many water bodies flow through the park, supporting the diverse vegetation.

The park is an abode to 580 bird species, 50 mammalian species and 25 reptile species. Apart from a number of nocturnal and diurnal species, the park is also home to various species of deer and wild boars. However, centre of attraction of the park is its tiger population. At the park, tourists can view leopards, jungle cats and many other animals.

Bad luck we could not see TIGER, but yes it was a very interesting Adventure tour. Jeep Safari was good, guide was well informative. If you carry camera it is chargeable, Mobiles allowed, book your safari in advance during peak season i.e October to March.

"Feels close to nature"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Sep 14, 2014
Jim Corbett National Park is famous for tigers but, it has several attractive areas and creatures to see. The natural serenity and beautiful weather and wild animals are definitely a lifetime experience. I would recommend to go on a night safari where, you can see animals hunting and roaming. Overall you will gather many an unforgettable memory here.

"Breathtaking silence of the surrounding made the journey amazing"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Aug 19, 2014
One foggy morning, with my family, we were heading towards Jim Corbett National Park. The mesmerising experience of Corolla and the adventure butterflies made us feel anxious. We checked into a resort there and had the whole day trip to forest. The breathtaking silence of the surrounding made the journey at its best. Our journey was really exciting.

"Natural and beautiful environment to amaze anyone"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Jul 28, 2014
My trip was very adventurous because after one hour of our travel, it rained heavily along with the snowfall. It became very cold and we all were amazed. We saw lots of animals inside.

"It was a good visit"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Jul 12, 2014
It's well organised. There are guides and Gypsy cars that take you inside the park. We were not lucky to see the tiger though we saw a family of elephants. It was a good visit.

"Really thrilling and adventurous"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Jun 1, 2014
The National Park is really thrilling and adventurous. The open Gypsy Safari was really adventurous. We could see huge number of spotted deer, Sambhars etc. We met a group of seven wild elephants and a huge tusker. It was from a distance of about 50 feet. The unforgettable experience was with a tigress when she crossed the road at a distance of 8 feet from our open Gypsy.
