Good news pertaining to Corbett National Park awaits for nature and wildlife lovers as the forest department of Uttarakhand has decided to create a new zone in the park that will offer the guaranteed glimpse of the elusive big cat. As we know that Corbett Tiger Reserve is a home to the densest tiger population in the world but we often claim that it does always offer a glimpse of the Tiger. We become disappointed and our whole trip to the CTR gets spoiled. But need not to worry now because Uttarakhand Government has decided to set up a 200 hectare fenced enclosure for rescued tigers, guaranteeing a glimpse of the tigers as a part of a new safari zone.
Tigers that are not fit enough to reside in the jungles will be housed in the fenced area. It is so because many such tigers turn in to man-eaters or die as they are incapable of hunting. Forest official told that the tiger safari will take place near Gujjar Stot, which has dense forest cover. This buffer zone is deliberately selected for tiger safari zone to overcome the mounting pressure of the tourists coming to Corbett Tiger Reserve. The park has attracted more than two lakhs tourists last year, generating 7.5 crore revenue to the Government fund.
The months of November through June are the perfect time to visit Corbett. It is during this time (from November 15 to June 15) the excellent climate is most pleasant and good hotels and accommodations are easy to find. Above all the new zone, Dhela will remain open all throughout the year for the tourist. Jeep Safari in Corbett National Park
