Tiger at the Corbett National Park India

Tiger at the Corbett National Park, India
I went for a short trip (3 days) around mid April to Corbett National Park in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, India. I love the jungles and Corbett was always in my wish list. The highlight of my trip was sighting tigers of course…..

Corbett is recommended for anyone who likes nature. Not only will you sight tigers, but the variety of birds, and the beauty of the jungle will mesmerise you. Corbett is perhaps the only National Park in India that allows you to stay inside the jungle in the forest rest houses.

Corbett has an on line booking system through which you can book your stay:
http://corbettonline.uk.gov.in/AccBAvailability.aspx.

The website is not very user-friendly and it is not easy to get bookings, but that is the only way you can get bookings for the forest rest houses. Try to book in the Bijrani and Dhikala zones. Dhilkala is beautiful and should not be missed. I would recommend staying in Corbett for at least 5 days so that you can stay in both the zones, Bijrani and Dhikala.

I will post pictures from my trip to Corbett in the next few posts. To begin with here is a short tiger video to whet your appetite.

Is the Corbett National Park has anything to do with Jim Corbett?

@Param, Thanks, yes we were very lucky indeed. Although I think the chances of tiger sightings in summer is the highest.

Ranjana Jha said...

Yes, it is named after Jim Corbett.

Thanks,
Ranjana
