What's special about Jim Corbett National Park?
Nestled between the Siwalik Himalayas and the Terai, in the picturesque Nainital district of Uttarakhand, lies Jim Corbett National Park, India's pioneering national park. Encompassing an expansive area of approximately 520 square kilometers, the National Park boasts a treasure trove of biodiversity and breathtaking landscapes. Its true claim to fame, however, is its role in the conservation of the endangered Bengal tiger. It was among the first areas in India to be designated as a tiger reserve under the visionary Project Tiger initiative in 1973.
But it's not just the tigers that steal the show here. With over 586 species of resident and migratory birds, this park has rightfully earned its reputation as one of India's most prolific avian regions. Birdlife International has even bestowed the area with the prestigious title of an 'Important Bird Area,' recognizing the significance of its feathered inhabitants.
So, pack your bags, don your warmest attire, and prepare to immerse yourself in the grandeur of the Corbett Tiger Reserve this winter.
