JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK UTTARAKHAND

Among all the national parks in India, the Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest and one of the best among the top ten (10) national parks in India. It was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park, for all species of animals but in 1973 the Project Tiger was initiated in here chiefly to protect the imposing Royal Bengal Tigers, and now is home to leopards, wild elephants and numberless species of birds. Interestingly Mr Edward James Corbett was a British hunter and held the rank of Colonel in the British Indian Army. He hunted down many man-eating tigers and leopards in the same area of erstwhile United Province. It was he, who initiated the concept of the Hailey National Park and in 1957, i.e., after his death in 1955, the park was renamed Jim Corbett National Park in his honor. Located at the foothills of the Himalayan range of Uttarakhand, expanded in 520 square kilometres, Corbett National Park is one of the hot spots of the wildlife lovers. Beauty and wilderness of this park attracts enthusiasts from various parts of the globe. This wildlife tourist destination of India has also been featured in many wildlife documentaries in order to raise the awareness towards the mighty and stunning Bengal Tigers and their impact on the ecology. The Park has been divided into five Tourist Zones, viz., Bijrani Safari Zone, Jhirna Safari Zone, Dhela Safari Zone, Dhikla Zone and Durga Devi Zone. You are free to experience being in the rich flora & fauna of the Park and observe the numberless species of birds and animals around, but obviously in the kind and candid guidance of the personnel, people and guides. SPEAKING TO A T, JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK IS A TOTAL EXPERIENCE OF BEING IN THE LAP OF MOTHER NATURE ALONG WITH OTHER SPECIES AND A SPARKLING CONCLUSION WE REACH AT ONCE IS THAT, OTHER SPECIES ARE SUPERIOR TO US, THE HUMAN BEINGS. Thanks.
