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.
The National Tiger Conservation Authority and the Forest Department has given the nod to restart tourism activities at this popular wildlife attraction.
Tourists can visit the Dhela, Jhirna, Bijrani and Pakhro zone of Corbett Tiger Reserve.
Online bookings have already begun since June 13 for the period from June 14 until June 30.
All drivers, guides, and eco-tourists will be screened before entering the park. Anyone found with high-body temperature will not be allowed for safari, and will be guided to the nearest health facility.
The authorities have denied permission for visitors who are below ten years and above 65 years to enter in Corbett Tiger Reserve.
Everyone at the park is expected to wear masks, use face shields and practice social distancing.
The park administration will sanitise vehicles at the entrance of all zones.
The seating capacity has been reduced to one driver and one guide in the front; only two travellers are allowed in both, middle and back seats each. Six people in total are allowed in one Gypsy.
