Corbett National Park / Corbett Tiger Reserve
Corbett National Park which celebrated its 80th Anniversary in 2016 is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. Corbett Tiger Reserve lies mainly in the districts of Nainital, Almora and Pauri Garhwal. The reserve, extending over the Terai and Bhabar tracts in Uttarakhand, covers a total area of 1218.54 sq km and constitutes of Corbett National Park (520.82 sq km), Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary (301.18 sq km) and Kalagarh Reserve Forest (496.54 sq km).
This erstwhile hunting ground was first protected by Major Ramsey in 1858. He banned farming and cattle grazing in the lower Patlidun Valley, which now forms a large portion of the Corbett Tiger Reserve. Finally, in 1936, Governor Malcolm Hailey declared it as a National Park, which was India’s first and the world’s third National Park. Hailey National Park, as it was then known, covered around 325 sq km, and Major James E. Corbett (popularly known as Jim Corbett) was one of the key consultants in defining its boundaries. Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter-turned-conservationist, was highly instrumental in preservation of its unique wildlife and dense forests. In his honor, the park was renamed as Corbett National Park in 1957, two years after Jim Corbett’s death. In 1973, the Government of India launched the Project Tiger and Corbett National Park was one of the first to be included under this project.
The terrain of the park is hilly, ranging from 600-1100 m above the sea level, and consisting of mixed deciduous forests of Sal (Shorea robusta) and Sheesham (Dalbergia sissoo) and open grassy patches known as chaurs. The park is famous for its amazing biodiversity consisting of more than 580 species of birds, around 50 species of mammals, at least 25 species of reptiles in addition to hundreds of species of insects and plants.
Some of its famous inhabitants include Mammals such as Tiger, Asian Elephant, Leopard, Sloth Bear, Goral, Chital, Sambar, Barking Deer, Hog Deer, Indian Porcupine, Yellow-throated Marten, and Himalayan Langur; Reptiles such as Mugger Crocodile, Gharial Crocodile, King Cobra and Rock Python; Birds such as Kingfishers, Wagtails, Forktails, Pheasants, Hornbills, Eagles, Vultures, and Storks in addition to several species of migratory waterfowl.
