Does anyone know which Indian National Park is famous for tiger reserve? Please provide me the detail information about it as I am planning my adventure trip with my friends but yet not decided at which Indian National Park? Reply to this

We went to Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand and thoroughly enjoyed it, including getting to see wild tigers, though this is by no means guaranteed. I believe its the biggest park with the most tigers but access to most areas is pretty limited. There's lots of other good stuff even if you don't see tigers! We stayed in Dhikali well inside the park, which was great.
It was VERY difficult to book at the last minute from close-by however (for details see my blog Man-Eaters of Kumaon including details of Tigerland Safaris and Tours, who I'd thoroughly recommend.)
Might have been easier to book from Delhi, but there was quite a waiting list last March so booking ahead from overseas might be even better. Probably more expensive, though. Despite our traumas we did get the trip for peanuts in the end!

We went to Ranthambore. It was an incredible experience, but as Andy and Debby state, seeing a tiger in the wild is not guaranteed. We were lucky to see one on our last of 3 attempts....I booked on a website directly. I am sure you can google it and I believe it was through a rajasthan website....how vague is that. Anyway, great experience...the blog is below

The other advantage with Corbett is that you can go searching for them on the back of elephants! I was there for a couple of days, and though we heard a tiger, we didn't see any. No one who was in the camp on the days I was there saw any tigers - and that included both elephant riders (like myself) or vehicle passengers.

I had friends that saw tigers in Ranthambore as well - though it was from a great distance. The terrain there is a more friendly for tiger spotting as it is not as overgrown. Reply to this

Sunderban National park is another great destination, specially if you would like to witness a few Royal bengal Tigers. This park is very near to Kolkata. Reply to this

There are over 80 national parks in India. The best national parks are Sunderbans National Park, Bandhavgarh National Park, Kanha National Park, Nagarhole National Park, Ranthambore National Park and Jim Corbett National Park.

I have a tour in Jim Corbett National Park previous year. It was quite adventurous for me and if you are looking for tiger tour then i suggest you to visit Jim Corbett National Park
Corbett National Park is located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Home to a variety of flora and fauna, It is famous for its wild population of Tigers, Leopards and Elephants.

Safari Options - Elephant, Jeep

The duration of Jeep is about three to four hours and is conducted till sunset. After sunset there is no entry in the park. If you want to have a night stay in park and want to watch the tiger then you have to take permission from guard. After having your complete information in the document they will take you in the tiger Camp from there you have great opportunity for viewing wildlife, especially the tiger in its natural habitat.

Dhangarhi gate is the entrance of Corbett National Park (dense Sal jungle along the Ramganga River, Cross the river at Gethia Rao Bridge for the Kanda Range) After reaching Dhikala(tourist complex ) relax a bit have a lunch.

You can stay in dhikala for night. Although accommodation in Dhikala is not luxurious but it’s ok.

From here my advice for you to have elephant ride. As elephant is the best mode of transport for wildlife viewing. You will definitely enjoy open chaurs (grasslands) and dense forests by an unconventional route.

Then again have jeep to the scenic lake area. Watch crocodile in Jhirnajhali area.

One more interesting fact about Corbett National Park is splendid landscape. So it’s very dangerous to visit in rainy season.
