Ramnagar, Oct 16 (ANI): The Jim Corbett National Park reopened for public after four-months long break during the monsoon.
On its reopening, the wildlife warden of the sanctuary permitted only day-long visit and the preference was extended to school students and tourists from abroad.
Incidentally, the school students had actively participated in the Wildlife Week, which was celebrated recently.
"We opened the park and initially allowed vehicles of school students. Thirty vehicles to tour inside were already booked," said V K Singhal, director, Jim Corbett National Park.
For the school students and youngsters, the reopening of the park turned to be a refreshing experience, particularly after the gruelling schoolwork.
Foreign tourists said they were delighted and wished to experience the thrills of watching wildlife from close quarters.
"I am happy and quite excited to go back to the journey zone," said Joel, a foreign tourist.
The Jim Corbett Park is home to tigers, leopards, jungle cat, fishing cat, Himalayan Palm civet, tuskers, crocodiles, gharials and Asian elephants. (ANI)
