Jim Corbett National Park – the wildest of all safari

Let me tell you first about Jim Corbett…….

Corbett was a British hunter who spent most of his adult life in India.

Jim Corbett believed in the conservation of the ecosystem and wildlife, especially tigers. He played a very important role in establishment of the Tiger reserve project in India.

Firstly, the name of the park was Hailey National Park, which was rechristened afterwards in the honour of the great conservationist and naturalist Jim Corbett

 Because of his dedication and hard work Jim Corbett National Park was chosen as the venue for the inauguration of ‘Save the tigers’ project in India in 1973.

 

Let me tell you some history of this park…..

Jim Corbett National Park is situated in Nainital district of Uttarakhand. This park was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park Jim Corbett National Park and it is the oldest national park in India. But it was renamed as Jim Corbett National park to protect the endangered Bengal Tiger. The park was the first to come under the Tiger Project initiative

So friends now I am gonna to tell you about the beauty of Nainital which is also called as the Queen of Hills.

Where the high hills of Himalaya will mesmerize you. Nainital is not a snowiee place but you can see the beautiful snowie Himalaya view with lots of greenery and natural beauty. Here the Naina devi temple is very famous which is also the kul devi of Nainital.

Now again we’ll come to the point “Jim Corbett National Park”

As I told you before that it is famous for Bengal Tiger, an animal which is such in bright color with bright orange, yellow and black- grey-white strips in his skin which will give you Goosebumps on your body if you see him closely

You know what, at Corbett you can commonly see wild animals like – elephant, Langur monkey (black face, long tail), rhesus macaque, peacock, and several type of deer including Chital (spotted deer), Sambars, hog deer and barking deer. There are also crocodiles, the odd-looking Gavial or Gharial, monitor lizards, wild boars and jackals. Leopards (referred to as panthers in India) are occasionally seen buutttttt my friends I’ve never seen a Tiger with lots of arrogance in his eyes, I must tell you that aggggar god ne use bolne ki power de hoti na to socho kya haal hota ek he roars main….

Chalo suppose  you are going for safari and suddenly a tiger came and shout ki oyeee chal nikal yaha kya dekh raha h with his khatarnaak awaaz….just imagine. 

Let me do the end of the imaginary story and back to the point, the Jim Corbett National park will provide you to do jungle safari by jeep to watch the beauty of the nature. But what if a big size Elephant run behind your jeep…hahahahhaha
