For those who love the wild, the Corbett National Park is the place to be. Located on the foothills of the Himalayas, the Park, named after the famous hunter turned naturalist turned author Jim Corbett is well known for its rich habitat and bio diversity. The Park as I gradually found out is not just about the Tigers as I had initially thought. Infact, it is home to over 200 species of flora –shurbs, bamboos and trees all included; 50 endemic species of mammals, 600 species of birds, 26 of reptiles and 7 species of amphibians. Phew!!!!!
Wait! The Gyan’s not over yet. It is the oldest National Park of India, spread over 1318.54 sq. km, and is the main reason why we have a thriving tiger population today. The Project Tiger Scheme, yup the same one which we were made to learn by rote in scho + more about Corbett
