Corbett National Park, New Delhi – The Getaway from the Everyday

Corbett National Park, India

When you need to get away, there’s no better place to escape the chaos of daily life than to get back to nature and all its allure in Corbett National Park in New Delhi.

 

Known as the Land of Trumpet, Roar, and Song, Corbett National Park was the first national park established in the mainland of Asia back in 1936. Covering over 1288 square kilometers. Corbett National Park is known for it’s unique flora and fauna from Himalayan species to the plains.


The land

The Himalayan and Shiwalik mountains paint a stunning backdrop, but also add to the diversity of the park due to the altitude’s variations in temperature.
Within the Terai-Bhabar region, which is an area of two merged lands – one dry and porous, and the other swampy – is created a perfectly balanced eco-system for some of India’s endangered species, such as the tiger and the sloth bear, to survive.
The area wouldn’t be able to thrive without water, so the park boasts several rivers, the most prominent being the rain-fed river, Ramganga.
To add to its distinction Corbett National Park even has forests of tropical-like trees called “Sal” trees and Kahir and Sissoo trees, and grasslands that are favoured by many animal species.

The flora

Aside from the forest trees, Corbett National Park is endowed with several other types of trees, shrubs, herbs, and beautiful flowers. If you’re lucky, you just might arrive in time to see the rare flowering of the bamboo plant, which only happens once within several decades.
Look for edible herbs that you can taste such as the Bhilmora, and Clover.
Keep your camera ready to snap photos of the impressive “woody climbers” that grow on the Sal trees and shrubs.

The fauna

A visit to Corbett National Park wouldn’t be complete without seeing the conglomeration of wildlife that survives in balance within differing species.
Some of the more commonly viewed animals include tigers, elephants, and deer, but keep your eyes peeled for the elusive Himalayan Goral or the Mugger crocodile.
