Jim Corbett National Park

Tiger - Jim Corbett National ParkAbout 300 kilometers (6-7 hours drive) away from Delhi this is one of the finest habitats of the tiger in India, the Corbett National Park nestles in the foothills of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand, in the area known as South Patlidun. With it's varied topography, diverse flora and fauna and the natural splendour of its landscapes, the Park makes a precious heritage. Gypsys and Canters are available to tour inside the park. They run on pre-determined routes at fixed interval. Unfortunately most of the wild animals stay away from the tourist’s view perhaps because they know the routes and timings. Areas outside core area may provide better sighting and the fact that movement is not controlled there, makes it even more attractive. Early morning trip to Sitabani from Rmnagar town has a good prospect for sighting wildlife of Corbett area. On this route one can take one’s own vehicle (sports utility) and drive far into this beautiful hill area.

 

Established in 1936, this reserve was known as the Hailey National Park. It was later renamed after Jim Corbett the famous hunter, author and pioneer conservationist who helped set up this wildlife sanctuary. At present, this national park encompasses an area of about 520 sq. Kms whish includes, the vast reservoir formed by the Kalagarh dam across the river Ramganga. It is one of the best manged protected areas in the country and attracts thousand of visitors each year. This area is also a tiger reserve under the Project Tiger. The Park is a large valley with forested ridges running through it. The magnificent Ramganga River winds through its entire length in a south - southwesterly direction and numerous forest streams and rivulets that flow into it carve up the area into little ridges and ravines. Dense stands of sal and mixed deciduous forests are found throughout the Park while the 'chaurs' or the grasslands in the valleys - about one -tenth of the core area, offer visitors a better view of wildlife.

 

With elevations in the Park ranging from 400m to 1210m there is a rich diversity in habitat. Animals of the Himalayas and those of peninsular India can both be seen here and over 50 mammal and 25Reptile species have been recorded at Corbett. Among the predators are the tiger, leopard, diverse species of lesser cats and the dhole - the wild dog. There are antelopes (nilgai and ghoral) varieties of deer (hog deer, sambhar, chital or spotted deer and barking deer), the primates (rhesus and langur) and other animals like jackals, foxes, civets, wild boar, sloth bear, black bear and a range of reptiles including the cobra, python and two species of crocodile.

 

The rare fish eating, long snouted gharial and the more robust mugger can be seen basking along the sand banks and pools of the Ramganga. The river which is also noted for its sporting fish, the mighty mahaseer and the malee is popular with anglers.

 

Corbett's BirdsCorbett’s Birds- Corbett is the home of 580 species of birds including water fowl, 17 types of woodpecker, raptors like the Pallas fishing eagle, harriers and kites, peafowl, kalij pheasant, the rare chir pheasant, red jungle fowl, minivets, shrikes, cuckoos, drongos and barbets.

A fine reservoir on the river formed with the building of a dam at Kalagarh now attracts diverse species of water birds - both local and migratory. With its avian variety Corbett is a marvelous location for bird watchers also.

 

Dhikala at the heart of the core area, is picturesquely located at the edge of a grassy plateau perched high above the Ramganga reservoir and set into a bend in the river. The grasslands of the Dhikala Chaur disappear into the dense sal forests of the foothills. This is a favourite viewing area. The chaur and surrounding forests support the highest density of tigers in the country - about one every 5 sq. Km. Splendid herds of Chital, hog deer and elephants are also to be seen here. There are viewing towers as well as elephant rides for visitors - morning and evening. This is perhaps the best way to see wildlife for it is possible to go deep into the park on elephants, to get close to the animals in an unobtrusive manner and to get a clear view of them.

Naina Devi Temple

The temple, destroyed by the Landslip of 1880 and later rebuilt, is located on the northern shore of Naini Lake. The presiding deity of the temple is Maa Naina Devi represented by two Netras or eyes. Flanking Naina Devi are the deities of Mata Kali and Lord Ganesh.


St. John in the Wilderness, established in 1844, is located on the north end of town (Mallital), about half a mile north-west of the Naina Devi temple. The church was so named by Daniel Wilson, the Bishop of Calcutta, who, after falling ill during a visit to Nainital in 1844 to lay the foundation of the church, was obliged to sleep in an unfinished house on the edge of the forest. A brass plaque on the altar is inscribed with names of the victims of the Landslip of 1880.

 

Governor’s House (also Raj Bhavan), was built in 1899 and designed in the Victorian Gothic domestic style by the architect F.W. Stevens. Originally built as the summer residence of the governor of the North West Province, it later became the summer residence for the Lieutenant Governor of the United Provinces. Currently, Raj Bhavan is the official guest house for the governor of Uttaranchal and for visiting state guests. The complex consists of a two-storied mansion with 113 rooms, a large garden, a swimming pool, and golf links. Obtaining prior permission is must for visiting.
