Who was Jim Corbett?

Who was Jim Corbett and why is he still revered in the part of Uttarakhand known as India’s lake district?

In the early 1900s, villages in this largely mountainous and forested northern state of India lived in fear of man-eating tigers. Thousands of people were killed in the first half of the 20th century by wild cats. One animal alone, known as the Champawat Tiger, ravished over 400 locals. Jim Corbett was a self-taught tracker and hunter who had grown up in the hills and woods around Nainital. Son of a postmaster, he developed a deep bond with his surrounding environment as a boy. He became known as an expert slayer of dangerous animals. But he would only hunt down a tiger if it was a proven killer, and even then he remained sympathetic to the creatures.
Both Indians and the British colonial authorities would often write to Corbett, pleading his help to rid an area of a man-eating tiger or leopard. And Corbett would usually respond.
Jim Corbett killed more than 30 tigers and leopards in his lifetime, saving the lives of many more people. He wrote a book about his adventures, Man-eaters of Kumaon, and the oldest national park in India – which he helped set up – was named after him. Jim Corbett National Park is one of the few places you can see the endangered Bengal tiger. 
If you love adventure, wildlife or the environment, and you’re keen to explore Corbett country, there’s only one place to base yourself: 
"Jim Corbett was a pioneer conservationist and lectured at local schools and societies to stimulate awareness of the natural beauty surrounding local people and the need to conserve forests and their wildlife. He helped create the Association for the Preservation of Game in the United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh), and the All-India Conference for the Preservation of Wild Life. He also established India’s first national park, which was inaugurated in 1934 in the Kumaon Hills. He also had a deep affection for the people of the Kumaon Hills, and was loved by many in the region. He is considered by some in the Kumoan region as a sadhu."

How to reach Corbett National Park?

Corbett National Park and is easily accessible from Delhi by Road and Rail. Ramnagar is at a distance of roughly 250 kms from Delhi and even if you go easy on speed it should not take you more than 6 hours to reach the land of Tigers. If you are going first time to Corbett National Park and other destination in North India / Uttrakhand (Nainital - Ranikhet - Almora - Kausani - Corbett) area so plan you trip smartly because you can save your time and money through a good route map. We suggest to take a help of travel experts because they regularly deal in these routes and hotels.   

Corbett by Rail:
Nearest Railway Station: Ramnagar
Train: Ranikhet Express
Days of Run: All 7 days Class Available: 2A/C, and Sleeper
Book Tickets Online: http://www.irctc.co.in/

Note: Ranikhet Express leaves Delhi around 10 p.m. and reaches Ramnagar at 5 a.m. Make sure you request the hotel for station transfers. During winters its dark at that time and you might not get a cab/taxi.

Corbett by road from Delhi:From Delhi, take National Highway NH 24 for Moradabad via Hapur Bypass and Gajraula. Please DO NOT enter Moradabad City. Take right for Moradabad Bypass (Landmark: Hotel Best Western). Please note that Moradabad Bypass is a toll road. After crossing the Bypass, take LEFT U-turn for Kashipur and after 1-2 kms the road will take compulsory right turn. Follow the road upto Kashipur and keep going straight for Ramnagar. Once you are at Ramnagar, ask anyone for directions to your resort/hotel.

Note: Please note that uptill Moradabad bypass the traffic situation is pretty bad. I have heard stories of people getting stuck in traffic jams for 4 - 5 hours. Garh Mukteshwar is one area that gets flooded by people during Hindu festivals and it could prove to be a nightmare if you are travelling around that time. Unfortunately, all the alternate routes are as bad. I would recommend early morning travel, leaving Delhi at about 6 a.m. in the morning OR leave late in the night. Also please do not travel in the night during the "Kaavar" period. Those guys are nasty and occupy the road more than the tyres.

Stop overs:
1. Tadka Dhaba by Bhajan at BP Gas Station in Garaula serves good Dhaba food. Open 24 hrs.
2. Meriton in Gajraula is like Haldiram of Delhi. Serves Chaat papri, Chhole Bhaturay, Sandiwiches, Indian food, etc. Open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
3. 24 hrs restaurant at The Best Western Hotel on Gajraula Moradabad Highway serves very good food along with excellent desserts.

History of Corbett National Park

Corbett National Park has captured the imagination of many with its diverse wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. 1936 Corbett attained the distinction as the first national park to be established in mainland Asia.

Corbett National Park lies in two districts – Nainital and Pauri – in the hill state of Uttarakhand in northern India. It covers an area of 521 sq. km and together with the neighbouring Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary and 
Reserve Forest areas, forms the Corbett Tiger Reserve over 1288 sq. km.

Its geographical location between the Himalayas and the Tarai, and the streams, rivers and ridges crisscrossing the terrain, present Corbett with a remarkable variety of landscapes. This vivid mosaic of habitats – wet and dry, plain and mountainous, gentle and rugged, forests and grasslands – supports numerous plant and animal species, representing Himalayan as well as plains kinds. The most famous of Corbett’s wild residents are the Bengal Tiger and the Asiatic Elephant, but with about 600 species of avifauna Corbett is one of the richest bird regions of India.

Corbett isn’t just about Nature. It is also a rich treasure of history and cultural heritage. The park has a long tradition of conservation. The fact that it is the oldest National Park of the Asia and India’s first Tiger Reserve itself symbolises that Corbett is a pioneer in efforts at preserving our natural heritage.

The great naturalist cum writer Jim Corbett does not needs introduction. His writings have fascinated generations of wildlife enthusiasts and he still commands no less appeal nowadays. The areas in and around the present day Corbett National Park were the stage for his exciting adventures in wilderness. Most of his man-eater hunting expeditions also took place in the same areas. Jim Corbett lived in Kaladhungi, where his house has been made into a Museum dedicated to his life and times. Besides being located at a bio-geographic confluence, Corbett National Park is situated at the junction of two distinct hill regions of Uttaranchal – Garhwal and Kumaon. Hence, the Park represents a synthesis of cultures of both these mountain areas.

Total Area of the Corbett Park: 1,288.32 sq. km
Corbett National Park : 520.82 sq. km
Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary 301.18 sq. km

Reserve Forest at the Corbett Park: 466.32 sq. km 
Altitude of the Corbett Park: 400 mt. - 1200 mt. 


Every year Bijarani zone get operational from Mid of October and The core area of the national park Dhikala zone get operational from 15th of Nov. The main reason for closure of the Bijarani and Dhikala zone during the rest of the year is that during the monsoons most of the roads get washed away. Repair work starts after the rains end and it is only by October to November that roads to Bijarani and Dhikala are back in motorable condition. Corbett National Park remains open throughout the year for the visitors from Jhrina zone.
Seasons: There are three well defined seasons
Winter: November to February
Summer: March to June
Monsoon: July to October
