Undoubtedly one of the greatest National Parks of Asia, the Corbett National Park is located in the foothills of the Himalayas. This is home to the majestic Cat, the tiger, sightings of which are as rare as its gets. The actual Tiger Reserve is spread over an area of 1319 sq km and includes the Corbett National Park, Kalagarh Reserve Forest and Sonanadi Wildlife Sanctuary. Of course, only close to 25% of the reserve is open to the public, the rest remaining out of reach to safeguard their natural habitat. What renders it an even more mysterious air is the fact that none of the roads have been laid down or repaired, so what you actually travel through is the real jungle! Common sightings here include barking deer, spotted deer, elephants, boars, leaopards and kingfisher and serpent eagles. Roam on a jeep or atop an elephant and hire the services of a guide trained to hear and decipher the right sounds.
