Portrait of Corbett National Park

The southern foothills of the Himalayas, also known as the Terai, create a breathtakingly beautiful landscape that is more reminiscent of Canada than India. The evergreen, dense forests on hilly terrain, the stony riverbeds with the crystal clear waters of the Ramganga and the open steppes covered with elephant grass at Dikhala are a real feast for the eyes. Corbett has an extraordinarily diverse flora and fauna, which unite species from the high mountains and the subcontinent.

Peculiarities of Corbett National Park

With the simple and vegetarian Dikhala Forest Lodge, Corbett offers the unique opportunity among Indian national parks to spend the night in the middle of the wilderness. This is not possible in any other tiger reserve! The sacrifice of a little luxury in favour of a unique nature experience is always worthwhile. Corbett National Park bears its name in honor of the British hunter and later conservationist Jim Corbett, who spent most of his life in this part of British India known as Kumaon. Jim loved "his India" and its natural treasures – from childhood he wandered alone through the jungle and had many encounters with tigers and other dangerous animals, which he captured in his thrilling writings. He described the tiger as "the gentleman of the jungle", since he was of the firm belief that a tiger attacks humans only in the outermost emergency as as a result of an injury. Nevertheless, Jim gained fame by helping to save the inhabitants of the mountain slopes of Kumaon from notorious man-eaters. His literary works can hardly be surpassed in tension and confer an extra bit of anticipation on an impending journey to the land of the tiger.
