Forest Trail at Jim Corbett National Park
Straddling the undulating Shivalik foothills of the Himalayas, this park was established in the year of 1936. Jim Corbett who is one of the best naturalist as well as hunters of this region advised this park. Covering an area of 520 sq. km. this park is also a part of Project Tiger as it has a considerable population of Black bears of Himalayan origin, Tiger, dhole jackal, sloth bear and also the martem which is yellow throated.
The avifauna includes a variety. You will find graylag, snipe as well as the sandpiper and barheaded goose. The residents include stork with a black neck, darters, egrets, cormorants, and herons. The reptiles which are residents of this area are the gharial, crocodiles which eat fish and have long noses and also some kinds of turtles. In this park you will also find vipers, king cobras and krait.
The reservoir formed due to building the dam at Kalagarh has attracted several local and migratory water birds. The Corbett National Park has hence become paradise for bird watchers.
The varied topography of this national park, sundry flora and fauna and the grandeur of its landscape make the park a precious heritage. The rich variety of animals is due to the elevation in the park. Animals from peninsular India as well as from the Himalayas are seen here.
The picturesque Dhikala complex that lies in the heart of this region has viewing towers. The elephant rides organized in the morning and evening for visitors enables them to get a clear and close view of the animals.
Hiking in this forest probably is the best way to get close to nature. Exploring and minutely observing the forest and its mountains closely adds color to the experience, thus, making the experience memorable.
