The Great Corbett Experience (03 Days: #767)
Established in 1936 as Hailey National Park in order to protect tigers and their habitat, Corbett National Park is India’s oldest national park. In the 1970s, it also became the first national park to come under the Project Tiger initiative. Corbett boasts a myriad of different landscapes – hills, rivers, lakes, marshy areas, grasslands, and dense forest. This variety of habitats offers you a wide assortment of animals, including Tiger, Asian Elephant, Sloth Bear, Indian Muntjac, Yellow-throated Martens, and many more. For birdwatchers, there are more than 500 species of birds seen, including Great Hornbill, Great Slaty Woodpecker, Lineated Barbet, Long-tailed Broadbill, Black Francolin, and much more. Combine this great animal and bird diversity with great views of the Kosi River, surrounding hilly forests, and the unique landscape and lifestyle of the region, and you have the chance to create great memories at a pioneering wildlife destination.
