Uttarakhand’s wildlife spot Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve (also known as Jim Corbett National Park) has reopened for eco-tourism, with strict guidelines in place.
One of the most popular and most visited India’s national parks, Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve including Bijrani, Dhela and Jhirna were opened for tourists after a gap of nearly two and a half months.
The number of people allowed to go in one vehicle for animal safaris has been reduced from six to four including the driver and the guide in compliance with social distancing guidelines, deputy director of Corbett Kalyani Negi said.
During normal times, 60 vehicles, each of them carrying six people, were permitted to go for the day and night safaris in these ranges.
Corbett Tiger Reserve was shut down temporarily for it’s tourists following the COVID-19 induced lockdown in March. However, the Dhikala zone has not been opened for tourists as it is scheduled to be closed for the monsoon from June 15. Source: PTI
