Corbett is to the north of the Indian sub-continent in the Himalayas, the most secret animal park in the world! Shrouded in mist amid the sounds and secrets of the orient. The Corbett National Park, against a snow-capped Himalayan back drop, is truly vast, covering an area of 200 square miles or 520 square kilometers.
The first Reserve forest of its kind, the park was established in 1936- when it was known as the Hailey National Park- mainly through the efforts of Jim Corbett, the conservationist.
Corbett National Park was the first to be designated a Project Tiger Reserve in 1973. Situated at a distance of 260 kms from Delhi and 128 kms from Nainital, the Corbett National Park is best known for its big cats, especially the tiger.
Besides tiger, the major wildlife boasts Asian Elephant, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Gaur, Sambar, Hogg Deer. Corbett is drained by the Ramganga river, the dam at Kalagarh forming a huge lake to the west of the park. The park is essentially a large low valley.
