Jim Corbett National Park is spread over an area of 520 sq km that comprises large lakes, grasslands, marshy depressions, hills and riverine belts. Renowned for sheltering the royal Bengal tigers of India, the park also houses more than 650 species of native and migratory birds, along with over 50 species of raptors, 33 species of reptiles, seven species of amphibians, seven species of fish and 36 species of dragonflies. Some rare species like the endemic fish-eating crocodiles and otters can also be spotted. A wildlife safari either in an open jeep or on the back of an elephant, proves to be a memorable experience here. The park is one of the few places in the country that allows visitors to stay overnight. 

The park is a part of the Corbett Tiger Reserve and was established in 1936 as the Hailey National Park. It also has the honour of being the place where Project Tiger was first launched in 1973.
