Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India and was established in 1936 as
Hailey National Park to protect the endangered Bengal tiger. It is located in Nainital district of
Uttarakhand and was named after Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment. The
park was the first to come under the Project Tiger initiative. The park has sub-Himalayan belt
geographical and ecological characteristics. An ecotourism destination, it contains 488 different
species of plants and a diverse variety of fauna. The increase in tourist activities, among other
problems, continues to present a serious challenge to the park's ecological balance. Corbett has
been a haunt for tourists and wildlife lovers for a long time. Tourism activity is only allowed in
selected areas of Corbett Tiger Reserve so that people get an opportunity to see its splendid
landscape and the diverse wildlife. In recent years the number of people coming here has
increased dramatically. Presently, every season more than 70,000 visitors come to the park from
India and other countries. Corbett National Park comprises 520.8 km2 (201.1 sq mi) area of hills,
riverine belts, marshy depressions, grasslands and a large lake. The elevation ranges from 1,300
to 4,000 ft (400 to 1,220 m). Winter nights are cold but the days are bright and sunny. It rains
from July to September. Dense moist deciduous forest mainly consists of sal, haldu, peepal,
rohini and mango trees. Forest covers almost 73% of the park, 10% of the area consists of
grasslands. It houses around 110 tree species, 50 species of mammals, 580 bird species and 25 reptile species
