JHIRNA ZONE

The Jhirna Zone holds a prime position among the six ecotourism zones that define Corbett National Park. Established in 1994, it represents a successful story of ecological restoration. In its quest to expand the crucial tiger reserve, Corbett Park authorities incorporated farming land from Jhirna village and two others. The relocated villages paved the way for this land to be transformed into a thriving forest teeming with life.

Unlike other zones that close during the monsoon season (with the exception of Dhela), Jhirna remains open throughout the year, making it a popular choice for wildlife enthusiasts. This southern gem of Corbett National Park boasts not only captivating landscapes teeming with diverse wildlife but also the opportunity to witness majestic tigers and elusive sloth bears.

The terrain of Jhirna Zone is dominated by dry deciduous forests interspersed with expansive grasslands known as Laldhang Chaur. This grassy haven serves as a magnet for herbivores like deer, chital, nilgai, and elephants, while the zone’s numerous water streams quench their thirst and enhance the natural beauty of the area. Birdwatchers will also find Jhirna to be a paradise, teeming with avian diversity.
