Local Attraction - Mapple Leisure Resorts Corbett, Uttarakhand

About the Location
Corbett isn’t just about Nature. It also has a rich treasure of history and cultural heritage. The Park has a long tradition of conservation. The fact that it is the oldest National park of Asia and India’s first Tiger Reserve itself symbolizes that Corbett is a pioneer in efforts at preserving our natural heritage.

The great naturalist-writer Jim Corbett needs little introduction. The areas in and around the present day Corbett National Park were the stage for his exciting adventures in wilderness. Most of his man-eater hunting expeditions also took place in the same area.

Besides being located at a biogeographic confluence, Corbett National Park is situated at the junction of two distinct hill regions of Uttaranchal – Garhwal and Kumaon. Hence, the Park represents a synthesis of cultures of both these mountain areas.

Flora & Fauna
The different habitat types of Corbett i.e. mountains, Sal forests, Chaurs, Khair-sissoo forests, and rivers have their distinct assemblage of plants. More than 600 species of trees, shrubs, herbs, bamboos, grasses, climbers and ferns have been identified in the Park.

The tiger is perhaps the most celebrated of the wild animals of India. It symbolizes the power of Nature and finds an important place in our culture, mythology and legends. It has been worshiped as the guardian and ruler of the forest. Royal Bengal Tiger is the main attraction of Jim Corbett National Park, the other species include Asian elephants, Leopard, four species of Deer (Chital, Sambar, Hog Dear and Barking Dear), Monkeys, Himalayan ghural, Wild bore, Asiatic Jackal.
The great variety of habitat in Corbett is reflected in its impressive diversity in the bird life. Over 600 species, many of them rare and endangered, have been recorded in and around the park.

These include nearly fifty kinds of birds of prey that provide a unique character to the avifauna. Corbett is home to many species of freshwater fish. The Ramganga, Palain, Sonanadi and Mandal rivers provide vital habitat and breeding grounds for them. Fish form a fundamental link in the food chain for many key species like the Gharial, Otters, Fish-Eagles, Kingfishers, Ospreys, Storks, Fish-Owls, Egrets, Darters and Pelicans.

Reptiles live in a great variety of habitats. Several species of snakes have been reported from here, including the King Cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) and Indian Cobra (Naja naja). Indian Rock Pythons (Python molurus) are frequently sighted and there also exist several kinds of Vipers, Kraits and Boas.
