    I am planning on my kids to a trip to Jim Corbett next month, and I need some help in choosing a resort at the park.

    I have seen there are a number of resorts available, and its difficult to choose which one would be good for my wife and myself as well as the kids. However, the importance is for the kids as it is a holiday for them.

    I don't want too many choices so about 3 to 4 choices of Jim Corbett National Park resorts is sufficient.

    Hello, @Divesh, welcome to the forum!


    The Jim Corbett National Park is the prelude for all the tiger reserves in India. It began as the Hailey National Park, established in 1936, and was the first ever national park under the Project Tiger of the Government of India. Located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand, Jim Corbett National Park has long been a wildlife trove for many discerning tourists in and out of India. A large part of the national park is covered in vast sal forests and some areas boast of open grasslands. Over the years, the areas outside the national park have been accessed by numerous hotels and resorts, which means that the accommodation options here are very extensive. Below, we would highlight the top five resorts suitable for families located within the outskirts of the Jim Corbett National Park.
