JIM CORBETT NATIONAL PARK
22nd May- 25th May 2023
How to Reach Corbett
Ramnagar is perhaps the nearest to approach the Corbett National Park which configures the headquarters of CTR. This small city is well connected by the rail and road networks with the major cities of India like Delhi, Moradabad, Nainital, and Bareilly. Once you reach Ramnagar, then it takes only half an hour to reach Corbett National Park. The Park is around 15 km from Ramnagar railway station.
By Road : Ramnagar has a very good network of roads that connects the different cities. The Corbett National Park is situated at an approximate surface distance of 260 Kilometres from India's national capital, Delhi. The state government of Uttarakhand plies buses at a short interval of time from Delhi, Moradabad, Haldwani, and Nainital which reaches Corbett directly.
By Rail : The Railway station in Ramnagar receives trains from different major cities of India like Delhi, Moradabad, and Bareilly. Also, the Direct train to Ramnagar runs from Delhi. You can go through the various trains arriving, namely, Ranikhet Express, Corbett Link Express, and Kathgodam Express which will take you directly to Ramnagar.
Established in 1936, this is India's first national park. It is named after the legendary naturalist and conservationist Jim Corbett. Located at the Himalayas' foothills, near the popular hill-station of Nainital, the beautiful Jim Corbett National Park, is famous for being home to a large number of tigers, the highest among any Indian national park. Spread over 1318.54 sq km, of which 520 sq km is the main area, and the remaining is buffer; the park is spread over the picturesque landscapes of Pauri Garhwal, Almora, and Nainital. The jeep safari into the dense forest to see the wild animals in their natural habitat is a must-have experience. And if you are lucky, then you may get a chance to even spot a tiger. While on the jeep safari, enjoy the lush green forest's views cut across by streams and rivers and a few waterfalls. There are accommodations available inside the park for night-stay as well, which offer you once-in-a-lifetime experience.

"I learned from BBC “Planet Erath” about Fan-Throated Lizard, then knew Pratik from the lizards. When I asked Pratik whether he could make an arrangement for both me and my wife to take pictures of Fan-Throated lizards of running and fighting, his answer was positive. He had not only made a good arrangement for our photo tour, but also make us try variety tastes of India food, culture and so on. He tried his best to make arrangement to satisfy us. Our goals to India could not fulfilled without help from him. This was an extraordinary trip for us, the memory will last the rest of our life."
