ABOUT CORBETT

Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India and was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park to protect the endangered Bengal tiger. It is located in Nainital district of Uttarakhand and was named after Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment. The park was the first to come under the Project Tiger initiative.

Corbett National Park boasts of 400+ different varieties of flora, over 600 species of birds and many mammals like Tiger, Leopard, Elephant, Hog deer, spotted deer, Barking deer, Sambhar deer, Sloth, Grey mongoose, Otter, Pangolin, Langur monkeys, Jackal, Wild boar & off course the famous Royal Bengal Tiger.


This trip is focused particularly for the elephant conglomeration that happens in the Dhikala grassland of Corbett National Park. Located at the edge of the broad Patli Dun valley through which the Ramganga flows in numerous channels, Dhikala offers an awesome uninterrupted panoramic view of the valley, with the Kanda ridge in the backdrop. This sight appears all the more imposing from the watchtower near Dhikala. The Tourist Complex overlooks Dhikala chaur (one of the largest remaining grasslands of the Corbett National Park) and Phulai chaur. A drive through the numerous trails through chaurs is rewarded with sightings of Tigers. Wild elephants, chital, hog deer and numerous grassland bird species and raptors. The old forest rest house at Dhikala is a historic structure, having been built over a hundred years ago by the British.
