Bijrani Zone – Entry is from Amdanda gate situated very close to Ramnagar town – 30 Jeeps are permitted every morning & evening and can be booked well in advance – this was a famous shooting block during the British Raj days and has across section of Jungle roads best suited for Jungle Jeep Safaris. This area has a healthy Tiger and wildife population and thus the chances of sighting are immense. Located on the eastern end of Corbett, Bijrani contains a wide variety of flora & fauna which includes Sal forests on the upper reaches and tropical moist, deciduous mixed forest in the valley and plain areas. The availability of water from perennial sources and also from man made water holes and the location of the extremely wide grasslands provide a strong prey base for the big cats and grazing for the herbivores.
Jhirna Zone – located on the southern periphery of Corbett Tiger Reserve – 30 Jeeps are permitted every morning & evening and can be booked well in advance – the area consisted of many villages and was prime farming area – but being in close proximity to Corbett the crops were destroyed by wild animals – this made it one of the high man animal conflict zone for years. The Park authorities then managed to relocate these villages with its farming population to another area and the Jhirna zone was added to the Corbett Tiger Reserve. This particular area was transformed into grassland habitat which is excellent for bird watching but this also provides rich grazing for herbivores and wild Elephants. One can see abundant cheetal, sambhar and wild boar which makes this place attractive for Tiger sightings – there is also a good chance to see sloth bear and wild elephants which provide great sightings for the wild life enthusiasts.
This is the newest and sixth eco-tourism zone that was opened for tourists in December 2014. Dhela Ecotourism zone remains open for tourists throughout the year.
This zone is extremely rich in flora and fauna. The zone spreads over 1,173 hectares, which has mixed forests of Sal, Rohini, Haldu, Bahera, Kusum vegetation, and tigers, leopards, Asiatic elephants, sloth bears and king cobras. The area is particularly rich in bird diversity.
The Dhela zone can be visited on a day safari, the permit for which can be reserved using the official website. The safari is done using the registered vehicles and a mandatory guide. Private vehicles are not allowed in this zone just like the other zones of CTR.
Chaurs (Grass Lands)
A vast Laldhang chaur is the main attraction of this zone. The grassland is often seen packed with elephants and deers. Several wild pigs and Neelgai can also be seen here. The area is also a very sought after place for visitors interested in grassland birds.
Sheesam, Dhak, Sisoo, and Khair are the most visible trees found in Corbett. A lot of other varieties are found around the park which contributes to the diversity of species. The only conifer found in the park is Chir Pine, and is seen on ridge tops like Chir Choti and declines in Gajar Sot. The higher reaches near Kanda shelters Banj Oak growing, which is a typical Himalayan species. Kanju (Holoptelia Integrifolia), Jamun (Syzygium Cumini) and Aamla (Emblica Officinalis) are seen growing in major areas. Other main types of trees in Corbett Park
This buffer zone of Corbett area is a major part of the newly created Powalgarh Conservation Reserve, located on the Northern side of the Kosi river – based on the Tourism principles followed by Corbett Jungle Tours – entry is from 02 gates namely Bhandarpani & Powalgarh. This Sal, Mixed & Riverine Forest corridor is rich in all flora & fauna and recent camera trap surveys show a large population of Tigers and of course all other mammals. There is a temple located in the middle of the Forest dedicated to Goddess Sita Ji – this temple has a mythological meaning for Hindu devotees – natural warm water from a spring flows here – supposedly has some medicinal & healing qualities. A well conducted Jeep Safari with a knowledgeable driver is as rewarding for wildlife viewing as compared to a Jeep Safari to the other zones !!
