Corbett National Park
Corbett national park is the oldest wildlife reserve in India and the first to be included in Project Tiger. It is one of the best wildlife reserves in Asia, famous for its wide variety of wildlife and its beautiful location. The highlight of any visit is an elephant safari into the jungles and grasslands looking for tiger or a herd of wild elephants.

Tiger, Jim Corbett National ParkThe park covers a total area of 1,320 sq km in the foothills of the Himalayas, with a core area of 340 sq km. It's main purpose is to protect the plants and animals of the Ram Ganga river valley, especially the tiger and the gharial, a species of fish-eating crocodile. About 92 tigers inhabit the park, a significant increase from 1976 when tiger numbers were estimated at 44. With elevations in the park ranging from 400m to 1,200m there is a rich variety of habitats. Dense stands of sal and mixed deciduous forests are found throughout the park while the grasslands in the valleys (about one tenth of the core area) offer visitors a better view of the wildlife. The parks vegetation includes elephant grass and sal trees on the valley floor. Silkcotton and kusum trees, orchids, tropical creepers and bamboo grow on the hills. The best way to view wildlife is by elephant safari. It is possible to travel deep into the park on elephant back and to get very near to wildlife without frightening them away. The most commonly observed wildlife are langur monkeys, rhesus macaques, wild boars, spotted deers, sambar, peacocks and wild elephants. The park is also a birdwatcher's paradise containing over 580 different species of birds.
