A spot of good news for wildlife enthusiasts. They can now go on a day visit to five zones inside the Corbett Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand even during the monsoon season.

Many national parks and tiger reserves in India remain shut during the monsoon (usually between July 1 and September/October). Usually Corbett Tiger Reserve remains shut between June 15 and October 15. This year, the parks were shut down in May as the second wave of the pandemic struck.


The five zones which opened for day visits on June 29 are Garjia, Bijrani, Dhara-Jhirna, Dhela and Pakhro.
