Jim Corbett National Park is not only India’s first national park but it is a large bio diversity hot spot. The Park is divided into various zones each zone having separate tracks for vehicle movements. Some of the zones could be visited only if one is able to get the permission and permit to stay in one of the Forest Rest Houses located in that particular zone. In-fact Corbett is one of the very few national parks of India which provides the opportunity of staying inside the jungle. The most popular wildlife zones for seeing bigger mammals are ‘Bijrani’ and ‘Dhikala’. Dhikala is particularly famous for a very good sighting of wild animals as it is located deep inside the forest. This also has the most efficient forest rest house of the park. Over 52 mammals, 600 birds and 25 reptile species have been listed in Corbett. This is an extremely beautiful park very famous for the large population of elephants and tigers, which inhibits here. Wild boar, chital, spotted deer and ghariyal are some other most commonly seen mammals here.

P.S. Heavy monsoon rainfall and large rivers runoff make this park inaccessible from 15th June till 15th November when Park remains officially closed.
