Best Things To Do in Corbett

The Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India, established in 1936. It is located in Nainital in Uttarakhand and is named after the world famous hunter, Jim Corbett. This park was created to protect the Royal Bengal Tiger, a slowly vanishing animal species in the country, with Corbett himself playing a key role in his establishment. Corbett’s diverse wildlife and splendid landscape have made it very popular with the tourists in recent years. The most popular activity around is the forest safari, which is the best thing to do in Corbett. Jim Corbett National Park is absolutely the finest of all the national parks in India, both in terms of size and diversity. Established in 1936 as the Hailey National Park, this is where the Indian Government launched Project Tiger in 1973 to protect the Royal Bengal Tiger. The park spans over 520 square kilometres and covers a gigantic area comprised of hills, marshlands, grasslands, and lakes. It is one of the 13 protected regions covered by the World Wide Fund for Nature to protect the tiger, the Asian elephant, and the one-horned rhinoceros.

The town of Ramnagar is the headquarters of the park, which can be reached via trains from Delhi, Lucknow, and Varanasi. On reaching Ramnagar, one can book a taxi to the park or Dhikala. There are also roadways that a long drive enthusiast can consider. The best time to visit Corbett in mid-November to mid-June. Corbett houses a vast array of flora and fauna, over 500 species of each. The park is one of the few national parks which lets the tourists stay overnight in the lap of the park. Safari rides are given on jeeps and elephant backs. Corbett is an absolute treat for bird watchers as bird watching is one of the best things to do in Corbett, which is home to over 650 species of birds.
