  JIM Corbett National Park

Brief
The Corbett National Park is located in the foothills of the Himalayas. This is home to the majestic Cat, the tiger, sightings of which are as rare as its gets.The actual Tiger Reserve is spread over an area of 1319 sq km and includes the Corbett National Park, Kalagarh Reserve Forest and Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary. What renders it an even more mysterious air is the fact that none of the roads have been laid down or repaired, so what you actually travel through is the real jungle! Common sightings here include barking deer, spotted deer, elephants, boars, leaopards and kingfisher and serpent eagles. Named in honour of late Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter-turned-naturalist, the park is essentially savannah grasslands. Roam on a jeep or atop an elephant and hire the services of a guide trained to hear and decipher the right sounds. An ideal weekend getaway from Delhi, carry your binoculars and your sense of adventure and you just might glimpse the elusive animal.

Wildlife Attractions     
Home to the elusive Big Cat, the reserve is still the best place to catch a glimpse of the beast. And even if you miss it, you would still get to see different species of spotted and barking deer, chital, sambar and elephants. The best way to explore the grasslands is on a jeep safari, accompanied by an expert guide. Drive through the thick and quiet jungles, visit the waterholes, discover pug marks and trees scratched by tigers and catch an occasional sight of the sloth bears and other mammals in the jungle. There are also over 600 species of birds and various reptiles. While traversing the depths of the jungle, keep in mind that you should not step out of the jeep, wear loud colours and perfumes and litter the jungles with trash. Of course a must is a good pair of binoculars and your spirit of adventure and thrill! For those looking to connect more deeply, elephants are an alternate mode of exploring the reserve. Bookings for these can be made at the Forest Department.  

Bird Sightings 
Home to over 580 varieties of avifauna, Corbett National Park constitutes as an ornithologist’s paradise. The varieties include the Darter, Herons, White-Necked & Black-Necked Storks, the Fishing Eagle, Hornbills, Parakeets, Wire-Tailed Swallows, the Crested Honey Buzzard, Booted Hawk Eagle and the White-Crested Khalij Pheasant.

Fishing 
Angling and fishing is generally allowed in the Ramganga and Kosi rivers outside the boundaries of the park. Remember to obtain the required permit for this from the Project Tiger office in Ramnagar and if you get lucky you just carry your prize catch – a mahaseer or a catfish.

River Rafting

Rafting enthusiasts visit Corbett during the monsoon, when the park is closed but the Kosi river is overflowing with water. Most resorts also organize rafting activities, as well as river crossing, rappelling and rock climbing.
