:: WILD LIFE IN UTTARAKHAND ::

 
 

Watching animals in the cage at anonymous zoo is an entirely different and unrealistic experience in comparison with that of wildlife sanctuary or national park. Stop cheering yourself by looking at the helpless animals in a zoo and observe the real life struggle of animals in a wildlife sanctuary. Do you know Uttarakhand hosts India's oldest National park?

There are 6 national parks and 4 wildlife sanctuaries in Uttarakhand where you can capture the indisputable expressions of various animals and birds. Wake up with chirping of birds in Uttarakhand rather than the maddening crowds of the city. If you are an avid nature lover, photographer, traveler, adventurer or wildlife lover then Uttarakhand is the place where you will meet all your needs.
 
 
Garhwal Himalayas has some famous national parks and sanctuaries. All of them have been bestowed by nature with its bounty.
 
Jim Corbett National Park
Located in the foothills of the Himalayas in to closest proximity of Ramnagar (Nainital) is the majestic Jim Corbett National Park. Home to a variety of flora and fauna, the park is famous for its wild population of Tigers, Leopards and Elephants. Corbett national park was established in 1936, as the Hailey National Park (named in the honor of Sir Malcolm Hailey, then governor of the United Provinces). After independence, the name was changed to Ramganga National Park in 1952 but was finally changed to Jim Corbett National Park in 1957, named after the legendary hunter, naturalist-turned-author and photographer who had helped in setting up the park and demarcating its boundaries. India's first national park and the first sanctuary to come under Project Tiger, Corbett supports a variety of vegetation making it the ideal habitat for the Tiger and its prey. With the help of the World Wildlife Fund, Project Tiger was launched in Corbett National Park in 1973 and this park was one of the first such tiger reserves in the country.
