The Jim Corbett National Park, established in 1936 to protect the Royal Bengal tiger, is India’s oldest national park. Spread over the Nainital and Pauri Garhwal districts of Uttarakhand, this national park is named after Sir Jim Corbett, a British hunter and naturalist. This is also the very first national park to be a part of the Project Tiger initiative by the Government of India. With over 100 trees, 50 mammals and 500 birds species, this national park is mostly forest cover and a small cover of grassland. The landscape here consists of several brooks and streams, marshes and a lake, making it a top tourist destination- especially in the summers.
Apart from a top wildlife tourist destination, Corbett adventure activities are also much sought after. The many Jim Corbett activities include jungle walks, river rafting, rappelling. The Corbett adventure park is also replete with other activities like canyoning, river crossing, mountain biking, etc. Not only is Corbett perfect for holidaymakers, but it is also a paradise for those looking to get their adrenaline going!
