Jim Corbett National Park opens for tourists to become one with nature through wildlife safari all-round the year.
Jim Corbett National Park is now ready to enthrall the tourists with its enchanting wilderness. It is universally acknowledged that monsoon is usually not the favorable time to visit National parks and tiger reserves in India and most of them remain closed during monsoon (between July to October).
Wildlife tourism has been hit hard due to covid pandemic and because of this reason Jim Corbett National Park was closed in the month of May. This year, the five zones of Jim Corbett National Park – Garjia, Bijrani, Dhara-Jhirna, Dhela and Pakhro will be open for the tourists for day visits for round the year tourism. Tourists can enjoy a wildlife safari from all-round the year, starting from 30th June.
Not only the opening of Jim Corbett National Park tourism would be a great initiative to generate love and keenness among wildlife lovers for nature but also “it will help people whose livelihoods are connected with it,” said Rahul Kumar, the Director of Jim Corbett National Park.
According to Uttarakhand’s Forest and Environment Minister Harak singh Rawat, Rajaji Tiger Reserve and Jim Corbett National Park will be opened for tourists for the whole year. It is a very good initiative from the government as it would help to compensate for the loss caused by covid pandemic and generate revenues to support the livelihoods who are connected with the tourism sector.
The opening of Rajaji Tiger Reserve Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve during monsoon is still a question according to the experts as monsoon is a breeding period for wild animals and it would create human- wildlife conflict.
