Corbett National Park Overview

Ranked 9 of 47 sightseeing in Nainital

Jim Corbett was born in Nainital and was known as a hunter of man-eating tigers, but in his lifetime, he became an avid photographer and conservationist of the very animals he used to shoot. The Jim Corbett National Park has been named in his honour and is considered one of the safest places for the Bengal Tiger. Corbett National Park is part of the much larger Corbett Tiger Reserve and spans over an impressive area of over 500 square kilometres covered in hills, grasslands, and marshlands.

The park is known to be one of the most well-managed national parks in India, being divided into five different zones. It is home to over 650 species of birds that will leave you with a crick in your neck if you love photography. The endemic fish-eating crocodile or Gharial is a rare and exciting sight in this area.

Corbett is one of the very few national parks that offer an exhilarating stay inside the Dhikala Forest Lodge. It may not be a very luxurious one, but you can be assured you’ll get your money’s worth when you’re trembling with excitement at the sights and sounds that come with the fall of night here.

Good thrilling experience

Visited bijrani zone of CTR. One has to pre book the trip online for entry pass in any zone of CTR on official site of CTR which is www. Corbettonline. Uk. Gov. In/. Pre booking open 45 days before & get pack in 2 3 days. One has to hire safari for entry in CTR which is easily available in approx. 2000 rs. The area of CTR is 2 times more than Delhi State & there are only approx. 200 tigers. So it is near to impossible to locate tiger. You can see Elephants, Deers, Jackals etc. Overall, good thrilling experience.

Must visit place

This place is couple of hour drive from Nainital and is approx 300km from Delhi. It's heaven for bird and nature lovers as route to reach this sanctuary is covered with dense green forest. There is lot of flora and fauna at this place. View of lake, dense forest and mountains is mesmerising.Cons - Over a period of time lot of commercialization has happened with many hotels being built.

Adventure, fun and thrilling visit

We visited this place in off season. During which only one of the areas was open for visiting and many roads were blocked due to heavy rains. Advice for tourists - Do not visit during monsoon. But the Winter season is the main visiting time for this place. Although there are many stories about Tigers in the hotel and other places, but sighting a Tiger is very rare. Although other animals like Wild Elephants, Deers, Jackals etc can be sighted in open.
