The green forests of Corbett are one of the most popular wildlife sanctuaries of India, visited by tourists all year long. If you are planning a trip to the place, read on and find out which is the best time to visit the Tiger's home:

  • Summer

    Corbett experiences the stern whip of summer during the months between March and May, when one can see the mercury soaring up to levels of 40°C and hovering around 30°C on most days. This is not the best time to visit this place as the heat forces animals under covers and sightings are very difficult. However, if you plan to visit during this time, it is best to take the early morning safaris if you wish to see the wild.

  • Monsoon

    Experiencing heavy rainfall during the months from July to September, most parts of the Corbett range remain closed during these times. This is also to give the animals some time for mating and so that the ecological balance remains undisturbed. If you wish to visit the place during this time to enjoy the verdure the monsoon unleashes on the jungleland, you can visit the Jhirna Zone, which is the only part of the National Park open during this time.

  • Winter

    After the monsoon has given Corbett a new life and the animals have had times to themselves, the National Park opens its gates to tourists in the month of November. It is a pleasure to watch the sunlight streaming through the roofs of tree leaves when you are on the safari. Not only are the Weather Gods happy during these times, but also the animals are rejoicing. How do we say so? Because it is in the months from November to February that most tiger sightings are made in Corbett.
    The winter temperature in Corbett is pleasant as the mercury dances between 5°C and 22°C.

Equipped with all this weather information, you are all set to plan your trip to Corbett. Each season has its own charm and promises a different experience to the traveller. Make your choice and get set for a mesmerising holiday!
