After the catastrophic disaster in Uttarakhand in the year 2013, many feared about its development. Though religious tourism sector has seen a decline, wild life tourism sector has seen a surge. Corbett National Park has witnessed an all-time high inflow of tourist this year. Many tourist-friendly policies adopted by the National park management is the root cause of this phenomenal growth.

Better conservation efforts by the National Park management along with opening of a new tourist zone and very transparent online booking process have been the primary reason of this surge in footfalls.  It’s not only the Management, nature lover tourists make sure that they don’t destroy or pollute the wild park.
