Jim Corbett National Park is located at Uttarakhand, India. It is named after Jim Corbett who played a major role in establishing this park. Here you will find picturesque surroundings of lush green forests and different species of birds. Best time to visit will be from November-June. You might not want to go here during the rainy season because it's a forest and forests receive very high rainfall.

The above picture was taken during jungle safari. We saw many deers,birds,peacocks,insects and reptiles. I wanted to spot a tiger with my binoculars but found deers instead and knew sure enough that we were not gonna find any tigers, because where deers are there you can't find tigers, for obvious reasons.

We visited this place in May but to our surprise it actually rained for about 1 hr during our visit. It's actually pretty hot in summer, the rain made the temperature dip a little bit.

This is a picture of one of the many birds that i spotted at this amazingly big national park.
If you are a wildlife lover you gotta visit this place at least once! :)
