About 300 km north-east of Delhi, in northern Uttar Pradesh province. Ramnagar is the nearest town and railway station. The main accommodation center inside the park is at Dhikala, about 50 km from Ramnagar.
Corbett National Park at the foothills of the Himalyas was established in 1936 as the Hailey National Park, India's first National Park and the first to come under Project Tiger.
It is one of the best wildlife reserves in Asia, famous for its wide variety of wildlife and its beautiful location. The highlight of any visit is an elephant safari into the jungles and grasslands looking for tiger or a herd of wild elephants.
If you have heard North east of India is beautiful then you would know how important kaziranga plays the role in making the though beautiful. Few are aware that it is world heritage site.
The park administration is quite active in helping the WCS India initiative of identyfying the elephant by building photo database of each elephant in the park.
The park's rebellious nature comes to the fore in their unique concept regarding tigers that have turned man-eaters. The earlier mindset, mainly influenced by Jim Corbett, believed that once a tiger turned into a man-eater, it always remained a man-eater. Dudhwa has to some extent proved that, unless a tiger is physically decapacitated, it's habits can be changed back to hunting it's natural prey instead of humans.
In the physical aspect too, much to it's disadvantage, Dudhwa is quite unique. It is one of the few parks, which due to the pressure of the surrounding human population has no, or a negligible, buffer zone.
