  • From Director’s Desk:

Greetings from Corbett Tiger Reserve. Your love and affection for Corbett has only grown over the years and it is a pleasure for us to welcome you to one of the finest wilderness areas of the world. Corbett is rightly known as the “Land of Roar, Trumpet and Song,” and let me remind you here that there is much more to Corbett than its tigers.

  • Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival:

The 4th Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival is finally here! The 4thUttarakhand Sanctuary (WLS), 25 km from Haldwani from 3rd to 5th March 2017. The Nandhaur WLS, covering an area of 269.96 sq. km. was declared a WLS in Dec 2012. Nandhaur is part of the Terai Arc Landscape and is located 25 km from Haldwani in Nainital and Champawat Districts. The Nandhaur area is flanked by River Gola in the west and River Sharda in the east and intersected by River Nandhaur, which flows east to west in the northern area and then turns south to bisect the landscape into two before disappearing in the Terai area. Nandhaur also has large swathes of undisturbed forests, which have virtually no habitation. It is a critical link for the wildlife populations to move across the Terai Arc Landscape.

The bird festival will be conducted at Chorgaliya Forest Rest House campus, which is 25 kms east of Haldwani on Haldwani Sitarganj road. Haldwani is located at a distance of about 53 kms from Ramnagar (Nainital) famous for internationally known Corbett National Park. Activities at the festival will include birdwatching, talks, children’s activities, film shows, rural exhibition, local cuisine and lots more. The festival is open to public and there are no costs to attend. You only need to pay for your travel, onsite boarding and lodging.
