Established in 1936, Corbett is one of India’s last expanses of Himalayan wilderness and the country’s first wildlife reserve. It is spread across the foothills of Kumaon and its deciduous and giant sal forests provide a haven for many species of wildlife. Corbett is famous for tiger, but it is also home to large elephant herds, which congregate around the picturesque Dhikala Camp near the reservoir. Here you may also find marsh crocodile, wild boar and deer, whilst the birdlife includes pied kingfishers, crested serpent eagles and the Himalayan grey-headed fish eagle.
