Photography | Corbett National Park

Corbett National Park, named after the famed conservationist Jim Corbett, is one of the premier wildlife sanctuaries in India. It’s proximity to the capital, New Delhi, makes it one of the most desired weekend trips locally. Roughly a 4 hour drive (240 Kms) takes you into the heart of nature where flora and fauna come together to often wow the city dwellers and give them a fresh perspective to clean and fresh natural living.

My trip to Corbett resulted in almost no animal sightings, and certainly no Tiger. What I did discover instead was that there is a lot more to nature than spotting a single animal and beauty is all around; be it an abandoned ant hill, a bird perched atop a barren tree, or beautiful sunsets that grace the land at the end of every day.

Here are but a few selected photographs from the long weekend…

  1. It’s unfortunate you weren’t able to see a tiger. There are so few left in the wild that sightings are pretty rare anywhere. Still, Corbett looks like a beautiful area with plenty of wildlife and you were able to capture some great photos. Hope you’re able to catch that elusive tiger on your next attempt.

  2. This is a lovely collection. Despite the fact that there are no ferocious animals to e spotted in any of the pictures, you made the atmosphere of Corbett come alive in the mud tracks, the leafless trees and the anthills.
