The Corbett National Park nestles in the foothills
of the Himalayas in Uttranchal in North India. It extends over 525
Sq Kms and is crisscrossed with little ridges and ravines. The park is a large valley and the beautiful Ramganga river flows
through its entire length. Dense deciduous forests are found throughout the park . It is the grasslands or the chaurs that
offer nature lovers a beautiful feel and view of wildlife. The elevations of the park range from 410 meters to 1220 meters
and this enables a wide variety of flora and fauna to flourish in these environs.
Over 60 mammals and 30 reptilian species
along with a wide variety of flora can be seen in the park There are tigers, leopards, elephants, wild dogs, hog deer, sambhar,
spotted deer, chetal, barking deer, Rheus , Langur, Jackal , foxes, Wild Boar , Sloth Bear , Black Bear , crocodiles , Cobras
, pythons and more…….
The Park is home to almost 600 species of birds . Woodpeckers, fishing eagles, harriers,
kites, red jungle fowl, shrikes, cuckoos, drongos, barbets and more can be seen and the tourist can really enjoy the jungle
environment in the company of these rare birds. A comparatively new reservoir on the river Ramganga, at Kalagarh ( courtesy
a new Dam ) attracts a diverse range of water birds , both local and migratory . This is a must see for all visitors.
