As the nation is slowly coming out of the lockdown, many social and recreational places are now re-open themselves for the general public. India’s renowned tiger reserve and national park Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve is now open for tourists. The park was shut for almost two and a half months.
The Uttarakhand state government decided to open the tiger reserve with certain restrictions. The park authority as well as the tourists will have to follow certain guidelines.
As per the revised norms, the number of people allowed to go in one vehicle for animal safaris has been reduced from six to four. This includes the driver and the guide. This decision has been taken to make the tourists comply with the social distancing guidelines, deputy director of Corbett Kalyani Negi said.
During normal times, 60 vehicles, each of them carrying six persons, were permitted to go for the day and night safaris in these ranges.
Jim Corbett has four zones. Out of which only Bijrani, Dhela, and Jhirna has been made functional. The authorities did not open the Dhikala zone as the same has again to be shut from June 15 for Monsoon.
