Jim Corbett Tiger National Park Tour

Jim Corbett National Park has been a haunt for tourists and wildlife lovers for a long time. Tourism is allowed in selected areas of Corbett Tiger Reserve so that people get an opportunity to see its splendid landscape and the diverse wildlife living here. In recent years the number of people coming here has increased dramatically. Presently, every season more than 70,000 visitors come to the park from India and abroad.

General Information

Annual rainfall: 1400-2800 mm.

When to Visit

Do's  &  Dont's at Tiger Reserve - Jim Corbett National Park 

Please enter the Park only after taking the necessary permits and follow all the rules.

Please obtain services of Nature Guides that the Park has trained for your benefit. They are of great help to you in spotting wildlife and ensuring that you do not lose your way in the forest.

Keep to the specified roads and trails. Driving off track you may trample growing trees and cause disturbance to resting animals and their young.

Respect the wild animals and maintain a safe distance from them. Remember, you are in their home and they get first priority.

Listen to the music of the forest instead of your car stereo or transistor. The quieter you are, the more the chances of your seeing wildlife.

Wear dull-coloured clothes. Bright colours alarm most wild animals and they flee.

Don’t carry guns. Feel free to shoot with a camera instead.

Do not smoke or light campfires in the forest. Accidental fires can destroy this wonderful jungle in no time.

Don’t get off your vehicle at any point in the Park except where it’s allowed. This is for your own safety and the safety of wildlife.

The Park is not a zoo; so don’t expect to see wildlife everywhere. Corbett is breathtaking even in its scenery.

Do not be disappointed if you don’t see a tiger. There are many other interesting creatures that are to be seen and cherished.

Having alcohol and non vegetarian food is not allowed.

Help keep the park pollution-free. While inside the park, please put your entire non-biodegradable litter (tin cans, plastic, glass bottles, metal foils etc.) into the bag and dispose of it on your way out.
