Discover Jim Corbett National Park

Jim Corbett National Park is located in Uttarakhand’s Nainital district and is part of the larger Corbett Tiger Reserve, a Project Tiger Reserve. Corbett is India’s oldest and most prominent National Park, having been established in 1936 as Hailey National Park. It was also the site of the first Project Tiger launch in 1973. The Park is named after Jim Corbett, a British wildlife photographer, hunter, tracker, naturalist and writer.

This unique tiger territory covers 520 square kilometres, with hills, marshy depressions, riverine belts, meadows, and a huge lake. It is one of India’s few tiger reserves that allows overnight stays in the National Park. It is one of the most popular places for wildlife enthusiasts, as it is home to a healthy population of tigers as well as unique species such as otters and the endemic fish-eating crocodile.
