Jim Corbett National Park
Jim Corbett National was founded in 1936 as Hailey National Park to help the endangered Bengal Tiger. After Edward James Corbett, who was a key figure in the creation of this park, Jim Corbett National was named after him.
Jim Corbett was an Indian hunter who killed many man eating tigers. British officials called him to kill leopards and man-eating Tigers in nearby villages of the Garhwal, Kumaon and Kumaon areas.
Corbett was responsible for the deaths of many man-eating leopards and tigers in the area. Corbett discovered that big cats were either infected or incapable of normal hunting and turned them into man-eaters. Later, he convinced the government to create a protected area to reduce conflict between man and animal.

We chose the second route to Jim Corbett National Park because of its excellent road conditions. According to the driver, the roads on the second path are in bad condition.
There was only one rule when riding on the bus. The entire trip will be a sleepless one. We did the driving and the driver did the rest. We all had a great time dancing and were full of enthusiasm.
