Travel Guide Of Corbett National Park

Useful Information :
Daytime visitors are only permitted to travel in the Bijrani sector and day permits are issued at the Ramnagar office. Overnight visitors to Corbett require an entry permit as well as reserved accommodation in one of the guesthouses. Advance reservations are available at the Field Director's office in Ramnagar.

When to visit :
The park is open from mid-November to mid-June. The months from March to June get very hot but are considered the best time to view the animals as they come down more frequently to the water to drink.

Getting there :
Air : The nearest airport is a small airport at Phoolbagh, Pantnagar, 51 km away.

Rail :The closest station is at Ramnager, 21 kms distant. Ranikhet Express, which leaves the Old Delhi Railway Station at night, is convenient as it reaches Ramnagar early next morning.

Road :Access to the park is from Ramnagar and buses are available to Dhikala in the park. Taxis can also be hired here. It is also feasible to drive down from New Delhi. The 300-km drive takes six hours, is extremely picturesque and gives glimpses of various regions of Uttar Pradesh from the most industrialised to the agricultural and the remote. Buses run from New Delhi to Ramnagar but unless it is a luxury bus the ride can be extremely uncomfortable.

Fish :
Goonch, Mahaseer, Trout and many other smaller species.
