The fame of this National Park/Reserve has been well documented in history since its inception in 1936 as one of India’s first National Parks. Named after the British hunter who created raves of reverence on his skill to bring down the man-eaters of Kumaon and also later for his excellence with the camera shooting of a different kind, the Corbett Tiger Reserve has always been an enigma of the ancients of modern day Uttarakhand. Tourism is known to only be allowed in select areas and in recent years the number of visitors not just from India, but from around the world, has increased considerably. The Tiger reserve is known to champion the cause for eco-tourism and is protected further under the patronage provided by the World Wide Fund for Nature under their Terai Arc Landscape Program. Through this Program, one aims to bring about the preservation of the natural corridor of the place with regions in Nepal that would allow for wildlife migration. It is also known that it was here that the Project Tiger Reserve was launched here with its headquarters now in Nainital.
