Travel within city


Corbett National Park is situated in Uttar Pradesh and the main village of the park, which is called Ramnagar, is well connected to many cities in Northern India. For travelers who are arriving by trains the best option is to hire a taxi from Ramnagar to the park itself. Tourists are prohibited from traveling alone in the park and the resorts and hotels arrange safaris and elephant rides.

The nearest airport is at New Delhi which is approximately 300 km from the park. Travelers can hire pre paid taxis from the Delhi airport. They usually charge around Rs 2500 from Delhi to Corbett National Park.

Safari


There are many safaris that can be arranged through the resorts to travel inside the park. Usually this requires the permission of the Forest Department and they provide armed guards for the safaris. The Forest Department itself operates tours and jungle safaris and they are cheaper than resort operated ones. Jungles tours are usually conducted in jeeps that are protected with iron grills and railings. The safaris are generally safe; however the jungle terrain may make for difficult and uncomfortable rides. Some resorts also arrange elephant safaris and this is another fun way to see the jungle.
