Axis deer at the Jim Corbett National Park
These adult deer are enjoying a feast of shrubs at Jim Corbett National Park, the oldest national park in India. Founded in 1936, this park’s main objective was to protect the habitat of the Bengal Tiger. Comprised of over 520 km-square of lush green habitat and a variety of fauna, the park draws over 70,000 visitors every season, which is somewhat of a challenge to preserving the ecological balance of the place. Located in the sub-Himalayan belt of Uttarkhand, nights can get cold at Corbett National Park, but days are usually bright and sunny as in today’s homepage. It rains from July to September, so this might be a good time to plan a visit.
