Jim Corbett National Park
named after the hunter and naturalist Jim Corbett
who played a key role in its establishment - is the oldest
national park in India. The park was established in 1936 as Hailey
National Park. Situated in Nainital district of Uttarakhand, the
park acts as a protected area for the critically endangered Bengal
tiger of India, the secure survival of which is the main objective
of Project Tiger, an Indian wildlife protection initiative.
The park has sub-Himalayan belt geographical and ecological
characteristics. An ecotourism destination, it contains 488
different species of plants and a diverse variety of fauna. The
increase in tourist activities, among other problems, continues to
present a serious challenge to the park's ecological balance.

park is temperate compared to most other protected areas of India.
The temperature may vary from 5 °C (41 °F) to 30 °C (86 °F) during
the winter and some mornings are foggy. Summer temperatures
