The Corbett Tiger Reserve of Uttarakhand has reopened for tourists with all the safety protocols in place. After 3 months of the closing of the Tiger Reserve, the facilities of the reserve will be open for the tourists. All precautions will be taken to make sure the COVID infections are strictly monitored.

The SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) has been finalized by the National Tiger Conservation Authority of India to make sure the tourism activities continue with the proper safety precautions.

These precautions include proper social distancing measures, thermal scanning of all tourists and drivers, wearing masks, and the use of sanitizers wherever necessary. All drivers, tourists, and guides are required to follow these protocols. All vehicles and facilities will be disinfected regularly. The seating capacity for tourists will be reduced to 50 percent.

The Corbett Tiger Reserve will only open its 3 zones for the tourists. These are Jhirna, Dhela, and Pakhro Zones. The administration of the reserve is holding meetings to finalize their own set of rules particularly for the operations of their reserve. More details will be announced by the administration after a thorough consideration of all safety protocols.

There are currently 260 tigers in the Corbett Tiger Reserve which is bringing in around 300,000 tourists every year. The following short documentary by the YouTube Channel called ‘Pankaj Kapur Photography’ gives a glimpse in to the Tigers of the reserve in Dhikala & Bijrani zones.
