The Jim Corbett National Park is located 15 km away from a small town called Ramnagar in Uttarakhand. It is located about 260 km from Delhi. One can easily reach Ramnagar by rail or road. The city is well connected with major cities like Nainital, Bareilly, Moradabad, and Delhi. The most preferred way to reach Corbett Tiger Reserve (CTR) is by road through your personal vehicle. However, other options are also viable.
By Air: The nearest domestic airport to CTR is 50 km away at Pantnagar (Phoolbagh). The nearest international airport (for foreign tourists) is IGI airport, Delhi (295 km). Other major airport connecting links to CTR are through Dehradoon and Lucknow. Flights to Pantnagar from Delhi are not operational currently so visitors are advised to either travel via rail or road to reach Corbett national park.
Summer (March – June): The scorching heat with temperatures going up to 400C can be a deterrent to your plan of visiting Corbett. However, the heat also causes the animals to come out to watering holes thus increasing your chance of sighting the endangered animals. If you can bear the high temperatures, afternoon safari during summers can be fruitful for you.
Monsoon (July – September): This is definitely not one of the best time to visit the national park as most of the zones are closed due to heavy rains. Though the weather is amazing, there is a risk of landslides and soil erosion in the area. You can still enjoy the flora and fauna of the park in the Dhela and Sitabani zones with trekking on foot available in latter. The monsoons are the mating time of animals. You can avail the off-season discount and if you are lucky, you might spot the tigers.
