The highest point in Corbett National Park is the Guest House in Kanda, which is at an elevation of 1300 metres and in the lesser Himalayas, the rest of the park is located within the Shivalik range of hills. The river Ramganga is main source of its water although it abounds with smaller rivers and streams. This Park is made named after (yes you guessed it) the famous hunter, and later conservationist Jim Corbett who hunted down many a man-eating tiger and leopard which claimed at least 1500 village folk as per records available. This unspoiled resort still has many tigers left and other incredible species of flora and fauna; especially some 600 species of magnificent birds and some amazing reptiles. The flora is typically hard wood sal and shisam with dense undergrowth, sometimes giving way to grasslands and marshlands where sightings of tigers and leopards are easier. Since it is a restricted forest area, going inside on your own is dangerous and the core area of the park remains closed to all tourists from mid June to mid November due to the mating season and heavy rainfall.
