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.

"Saw nothing, needs luck"

The moment you hear about Jim Corbett, you imagine Tigers, Lions roaming around. However it depends a lot on your luck, we went there at sunrise time and to our bad luck saw nothing.

"Good if visit is in the morning"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It was a good ride early in the morning in a jeep through vast tracks in the jungle, dense at some places it's the best time. But it was disappointing to find that very few jungle animals were there. And no trace of elephants or lion were found. That way all noise about wildlife in the area seem to be a created hype and in view of this one can not call it to be a 'paisa vasool' visit. One must carry light refreshments as good quality is not available in the middle of journey. Heavy bags are best avoided.

"Awesome place for Wildlife lovers"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I suggest you to visit Jim Corbett National park you wont regret a really nice place. Jim Corbett National Park India had the proud distinction of being chosen as the venue for the inauguration of Project Tiger in India. Here is the place you will find the real home of Tiger. The environment is good and a really excellent place. If you have time plan for a vacation at this place.

Jungle is good but be aware from cheaters, visit only main Corbett Dhikala gate. Best time to go is in winters and govt approved safari services.

"Being with Nature"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It is worth visiting as it is full of uncertainties and adventure. Up and close with animals. Variety of trees and birds to watch. Good to have an Elephant Safari also. Insist on taking a guide for gypsy safari.

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"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted May 5, 2015
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"

  • 2.00/7
  • Posted May 4, 2015
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 Apr 10, 2015
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.
