Nature is the most beautiful thing we have. While living in busy cities I had never imagined how powerful, huge, and beautiful nature can be until I recently went to the beautiful forest in Uttarakhand, India. Corbett National Park was named after James Edward Corbett, more popularly remembered as Jim Corbett. Jim Corbett was a great tracker and hunter who had hunted many man-eater tigers and leopards.
Corbett National Park is well known for its wildlife and sightseeing of wild animals including Tigers, Leopards, Jackels, Elephants, Barking Deer, Sloth Bears, etc. It is also home to 600 + species of residents and migrating birds, which makes this place perfect for bird watching and bird photography.
My experience in Corbett national park was a new change to my interest. During the jungle safari, our guide Shazad gave all the information about the jungle and animal behavior and wildlife and it created a whole new interest to know more about the life in jungle. I felt very small while getting to know the jungle, especially when I saw a female tigress about 20-25 meters away from us. She just appeared for a second and quickly disappeared into the bushes and unfortunately, we couldn’t take a picture but still, I have a mental image of that tiger. She looked so healthy and big that I already felt a strange heaviness on my chest. I am planning to visit again somewhere around mid of this year and this time I am gonna spend at least 2 days inside the forest to experience wildlife from very close.
Here I am sharing some pictures I took during the safari. I hope you will enjoy them.
