Corbett National Park attained the distinction as the first national park to be established in mainland Asia on 8th of August, 1936. The park is the oldest National Park of Asia and India’s first Tiger Reserve.

Corbett National Park lies in two districts – Nainital and Pauri Garhwal – in the hill state of Uttarakhand, northern India. It covers an area of 521 sq. km and together with the neighbouring Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary and Reserve Forest areas, forms the Corbett Tiger Reserve at over 1288 sq. km.

Its geographical location between the Himalayas and the terai, rivers and ridges crisscrossing the terrain, presents Corbett with a remarkable variety of landscapes. This vivid mosaic of habitats – wet and dry, plain and mountainous, gentle and rugged, forests and grasslands – supports numerous plant and animal species. The most famous of Corbett’s wild residents are the Bengal Tiger and the Asiatic Elephant, but with about 600 species of avifauna, Corbett is one of the richest bird regions of India.

 

Corbett History

Jim Corbett National Park has always been famous for their resident tigers. Initially Jim Corbett National Park was named as 'Hailey National Park' in 1936. Jim Corbett National Park was renamed in 1954-55 as 'Ramganga National Park' and again in 1955-56 as 'Jim Corbett National Park' after Jim Corbett who hunted down tigers that had turned man-eaters. It was one of the nine Tiger Reserves created at the launch of Project Tiger on April 01, 1973 in Ram Nagar with the help of World Wildlife Fund.

India’s national animal, the tiger is the largest amongst living cats, their sub species have already become extinct and the remaining five are critically endangered. According to current estimates, the world wide number of tigers in the wild has declined to around six thousand, half of which are found in India. Jim Corbett National Park harbours one of the last sizeable populations of the Bengal (Indian) tiger- Panthera Tigris.

 

Other Wildlife Attractions

Corbett is inhabited by 580 species of birds including Water Fowl, 17 types of Woodpecker, Raptors like Pallas Fishing Eagle, Harriers and Kites, Peafowl, Khaliz Pheasant, the Rare Chirr Pheasant, Red Jungle Fowl, Minivets, Shrikes, Cuckoos, Drongos and Barbets.

Several Elephants also live in the park, but they keep moving to adjacent areas in search of food. Ramganga is the home of prehistoric reptiles, Gavial, Mahaseer fish and Mugger. In fact the Gavial has been saved from extinction in the park through captive breeding. A few species of Turtles and Tortoises are also found in and around the lake.

The reptiles found in the park include Python, Crocodile and many species of Lizards and Snakes. Crocodiles are fairly well distributed over the park and inhabit large number of ravines and open glades. The natural food of the tiger consists of Sambhar, Chital, Kakar, Para and Wild Boar found in plenty all over the reserve. Also seen on the rocky hillsides is the Choral or Goat Antelopes. Languor and Rhesus Monkeys are also well distributed throughout and often warn the entire Jungle with alarm calls, on seeing either a Tiger or Leopard.

Review

Really nice and big property with huge lawns.. there are such nice fruit trees all over the property... it was full of fruits and flowers when i went!! ...the river is right on the property..the walk to the river was literally 2 mins from my room...I had such a wonderful time foot soaking in the river..then returning to the restaurant and eating some delicious indian food. My room was also good sized.. stocked with all the basic amenities. Had a nice time swimming with my family in their outdoor swimming pool.

Stayed April 2016, travelled with family:
