|We were told that at this turn invariably one gets to see a tiger; however, we could see fresh pug marks only! Tigers avoid humans and move to dense areas of the forest close by with the engine noise of SUV; hence elephant ride is the preferred for sighting them.|
At a time when the country's wildlife is hit by a growing man-animal conflict, and poaching pressures, the Corbett National Park is a success story that many wildlife managers would love to replicate.
Corbett is the oldest national park in the country. Over the last 70 odd years the Corbett Tiger Reserve has gone from strength to strength. It is today touted as one of the finest examples of tiger conservation in the country.
At a time when the tiger census report has many state government cringing, Corbett success story comes as a surprise.
The big cats love the Corbett forests.
The Corbett Tiger Reserve has a happy family of over 160 of them. However, dark clouds gathered over the Park in the 70s when the tiger numbers fell drastically. But soon the pug marks were back. The striped, tawny animals are roaming freely again.

the visual absence of the hero while everbody is feeling his/her presence does increase the dramatic tension, as some of the best playwrights or filmmakers know and practice.
Thank you for the interesting notes on Corbett NP, too. A lot of fascinating places to see in your country.
With best regards,
