Corbett Travel Guide
Corbett National Park is one of India’s most beautiful wildlife parks where sighting of a tiger is still a matter of chance like many other national parks in India. However, the best part about visiting Corbett is that if you have time on hand, you can easily spend day in Nainital.
Corbett National Park is located in the foothills of the Himalayas in the state of Uttarakhand. The park was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park, which later changed to Jim Corbett National Park after the name of legendary hunter and tracker-turned-conservationist, author and naturalist Jim Corbett.
