        Indian visitor's

        Visitor's from Abroad

 

The thickly forested foothills of the Himalyas, in the state of Uttaranchal , generally referred to as the Terai. The splendid protected habitats located here, provide an unforgettable wildlife experience.

Nestling in the foothills of the Himalayas, the Corbett National Park extends over an area of 520.82sq.km. Varied topography and vegetation gives Corbett a rich diversity in habitats and natural beauty.

Flat valleys are interspersed with hilly ridges and the Park’s rolling grasslands known as the Chaurs provide visitors with an excellent view of its inhabitants. The magnificent Ramganga River flows through the entire length of the Park and little forest streams tumble through the ravines. While dense, mixed deciduous forests are found throughout the Park and over 110 varieties of trees, 51 species of shrubs and over 33 kinds of bamboos and grasses are seen here.  

Corbett has the highest density of tiger in the country – approximately one every 5 sq. km. and it was here that the prestigious “Project Tiger” was launched in 1973. Four species of deer – hog deer, sambar, chital and barking deer and other prey like the wild boar, support the predator.  

Besides the tiger, Corbett is a haven for 50 mammals, 580 kinds of birds and 25 reptile species.The Park has elephants, the Himalayan black bear in the higher elevations, sloth bear, varieties of lesser cats, dhole – the wild dog and an entire spectrum of colourful birds including water birds, pheasants, jungle fowl and the Indian hornbill. 

Basking along the banks of the Ramganga are the slender snouted gharial and the mugger or marsh crocodile. The river is rich in the magnificent mahaseer – a fine sporting fish prized by anglers, though angling is not permitted inside the National Park.

Excellent facilities for staying and viewing wildlife make Corbett one of the finest reserves in India
