The crown jewel of Ramnagar tourism is undoubtedly the Jim Corbett National Park, named after the legendary hunter-turned-conservationist, Jim Corbett. Established in 1936, this national park is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Sprawling across an area of over 520 square kilometers, the park is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the majestic Bengal tiger, elephants, leopards, deer, and a myriad of bird species. Safari tours in open-top jeeps offer visitors a chance to get up close and personal with the wildlife, making for an exhilarating experience.
