Jim Corbett National Park

Jim Corbett National Park is named after the hunter turned conservationist Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment—is the oldest national park in India. Situated in Nainital district of Uttarakhand, the park acts as a protected area for the critically endangered Bengal tiger of India, the secure survival of which is the main objective of Project Tiger, an Indian wildlife protection initiative.

The tents where we stayed.

We did not get to see the Bengal tiger only the pug marks.

On our way back the heaven's poured on us.

Finally we had a gilmpse of the setting sun to end our journey.
