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.

"Best Wildlife Experience" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Must visit park for those who like to see wildlife. You can see animals freely roaming nearby you. I have enjoyed most when peacock open their full wings and Bears are running in front of me.

"Land of breathtaking escape" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
One of the most beautiful forests in India on foothills of Shivalik range offer something for every Nature lover. With just 6 hours drive from capital of India, it's a getaway like no other. High rise Sal forests welcomes you with an awe and a photographer relishes every moment, be it a wide-angle lens or a Zoom lens for Wildlife. The Bijrani zone is a hit lately with Tigress and her 4 sub-adult cubs blessing tourists with sighting almost everyday.

The River Kosi has a charm of its own and attracts Birds to its lap. One can often practice Yoga or enjoy a lazy family time on banks of river.

A hardcore wildlife person can indulge in Dhikala gate where booking opens 45 days prior to stay. The tall elephant grasslands and Ramganga river offers some award winning frames. The famous Tuskers of North India are often found in herds and latest Uttakhand government initiative to share elephant images and ID the elephant is icing on the cake.

The summer migratory birds can often be spotted at Jhirna zone including paradise flycatchers, whistling laughing thrush, falconets among 250+ species of birds.

A leisure family can also enjoy Corbett waterfall, Garjia temple which are very approachable.

Operation time 15 November - 15 June.

"Should be properly organised and guided" new review

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Jeep safaris should not go at same time together. They create lot of noise hence tigers and other animals cannot be seen. Visitors should be guided to be silent during safari ride as to not chase animals away. Jeep safaris should have the option to travel on different routes from low-medium-high dense forest.

"A bit terrified"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Before entering the Corbett I was thinking about the Bollywood movie 'Kaal' and I was feeling terrified somewhere in my heart and bit sceptical about the arrangements of park authorities regarding security and safari.

"Difficult to spot Tigers"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Out of 10 safaris, 2 get to see the tigers. Keep your cameras handy. Not much activities to do, just sit back and relax. Do carry your medicines, small snack packets and odomos.

Awesome place for jungle lovers. Specially for those who enjoy wild life photography. Morning jungle safari is good experience. In short visiting Corbett was worth. Value for money, carry your camera if you are fond of photography.

"Charm visit, get a glimpse of Tiger"

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
In December, 2014 our department had an official trip to Jim Corbett. Trip was full of fun & excitement since entire department was travelling together. We took our train from Old Delhi Railway station. This was my 3rd visit to Corbett. Last 2 times have been with family & friends.

We stayed at Corbett Riverside resort which is within the vicinity of national park. We had a full day tour of the park via tour bus. My Third visit to Corbett was a charm & I was able to catch a glimpse of a Tiger & shouted in time for many colleagues to also see it. Next day, resort had some outdoor activities planned for us. It was all in all a great visit.

"Excellent place for sighting birds, tigers, elephsnts and gharials"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Its totally worth a visit, when taken at the right time and right place. Best time is to visit between Nov and March. And since it has many zones, Dhikala zone should be the preferred one. A chance to sight tiger in its natural habitat makes it special.

"A biggest attraction"

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted Feb 1, 2015
The biggest attraction for any visitor to Corbett national park, is the jungle safari. I felt its too commercialised. They release more than 10-15 jeeps at a time in a small area, which leads to lot of commotion and noise and you do not get to see even a deer inside the jungle! I found fellow visitors howling, laughing which should be prohibited when you are inside the forest. It needs lot of discipline and organisation. It was disappointing.
