India’s oldest national park, and the first one to come under the wonderful Project Tiger initiative, the Jim Corbett National Park is a haven for tourists and wildlife enthusiasts. Due to its beautiful landscapes and great diversity of wildlife, the park has seen a rapid increase in the number of visitors every season. The Corbett National Park lies on the sub-Himalayan belt, and contains around 488 different species of plants, along with a variety of fauna consisting of 50 species of mammals, 580 species of birds, and 25 species of reptiles.
The Jeep Safari is the highlight of any national park since it provides a thrilling experience, and the Corbett National Park takes this experience much higher. Covering dense forests, rolling grasslands, ravines, rivers, and vast lakes, the thrill of a safari here is unmatchable. The great Bengal Tiger, leopards, Himalayan black bears are some of the animals that can be spotted during the safari. Apart from the wildlife on land, the Corbett National Park is also known for hundreds of resident and migratory avian species. From viewing the white-tailed Rubythroat to Cinnamon Bitterns, glimpsing the Great White Pelican, and the rare Peregrine Falcon among others, birdwatching at the Corbett National Park is an experience to remember. Another peculiar experience awaits at the Corbett National Park—the Jim Corbett Heritage Trail. Visitors gain an insight into the work of the conservationist as they pass through lush fields that evoke scenes from his novel, and distinctive villages that he helped create. Among the many state-run, and independent stores that are situated inside the park, visitors can choose to buy authentic forest-honey, pashmina shawls, books, or other quirky gifts and souvenirs.
