Corbett National Park : Wildlife

Along river Ram Ganga, in the foothills of the Himalayas is situated the oldest National Park of the sub-continent, known as Ram Ganga National Park.

It was constituted in 1935, and later named after Jim Corbett. Corbett was one of the greatest hunters of the last century, who later became a leading voice for conservation and protection of wildlife.

Most of his hunting life, he lived in Kaladhungi, on the edge of the forest. He was a terror for the man-eaters of

Kumaon. The park is home to the Elephant, Tiger, Leopard, Panther, Bear, Sambhar, Cheetal, Crocodiles, and many other smaller animals.

It is a paradise for birdwatchers; more than hundred and fifty different varieties of birds have been sighted in the park
