Jim Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India and was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park to protect the endangered Bengal Tiger. It is located in the Nainital District of Uttarakhand and was named after Jim Corbett, who played a key role in its establishment. The park was the first to come under the Project Tiger initiative.
Jim Corbett National Park comprises 520.8 km2 (201.1 Sq mi) area of hills, riverine belts, marshy depressions, grasslands and a large lake.
Referred to as the ‘Land of Roar and Trumpet’- this Tiger and Elephant forest of flowing rivers, blue waters and Sal-dappled glades, is absolutely magical. Many of Jim Corbett’s enthralling tales, including the man-eaters of Kumaon and the man-eating Leopard of Rudraprayag originated here in these famous Kumaon hills. It also happens to be one of the last surviving stretches of untouched Sub-Himalayan wilderness.
Dense moist deciduous forest mainly consists of Sal, Haldu, Peepal, Rohini and Mango trees. The forest covers almost 73% of the park and 10% of the area consists of grasslands. It houses around 110 species of trees, 50 species of mammals, 580 species of birds and 25 species of reptiles. The Royal Bengal Tiger is the key predator. Other animals in this forest are Leopard, Jungle Cat, Barking Deer, Sambar Deer, Chital, Sloth Bear, Himalayan Black Bear to name a few. More than 586 species of resident and migratory birds have been categorised, including the Crested Serpent Eagle, Blossom-headed Parakeet, Red Jungle Fowl etc. In summer, herds of Elephants can be seen. The Indian Python found in the reserve is a dangerous species, capable of killing a Chital deer. Local crocodiles and ghariyals were saved from extinction by captive breeding programs that subsequently released crocodiles into the Ramganga river.
