India's first and finest park spread over 520 sq. Kms. along the banks of the Ramganga river, just 300 Kms. northeast of Delhi in the foothills of the Himalayas is the Corbett National Park.

Established initially as Hailey National Park on August 8, 1936, in honour of Sir Malcolm Hailey, then governor of the United Provinces, the name was changed to Ramganga National Park in 1952. In 1957, it was finally named as Corbett National Park in honour and memory of the late Jim Corbett, the legendary hunter, naturalist-turned-author and photographer who had helped in setting up the park and demarcating its boundaries.

The elevation of the Park ranges between 400 mts. and 1210 mts.

Many species of water birds, both migrant and non-migrant, frequent its water. Crocodiles and long snouted fish-eating gharial have found new homes here and their numbers have increased. They can often be seen sunbasking on the sand banks. For anglers too, the lake is a paradise. Fish, such as the mashseer, abound in the lake and river. The Park offers difference kinds of vegetation al along its varied topography which comprises hilly and riparian areas, temporary masshy depressions, plateaus and ravines.
