Established in 1936, the 330 sq km of protected jungle is one of the last remaining habitats of tigers in India but although these elusive creature are not often seen there is also an abundance of elephants, other big cats, wild boar, deer, crocodiles, monkeys and many species of Himalayan birds all living within a densely forested environment through which visitors are conducted by jeep safari.

Day 05: Corbett National Park - Haridwar Rishiksh
Another morning safari before drive to Haridwar or Rishikesh for over-night stay. Three Himalayan streams unite at Haridwar to form the Ganges, making it one of the most ancient and holy places of pilgrimage in India. The ghats lining the fledgling but already powerful river are a continuous bustle of religious rituals with many temples. In the early evening there is an opportunity to watch the ceremony of Aarti in which lighted wicks are floated onto the water as offerings to the gods. Either stay in Haridwar or continue a little further to Rishikesh, an idyllic small town at the very foot of the Himalayan foothills beside one of the rivers tumbling down to become the Ganges. Rishikesh gained fame in the 1960â€™s through its association with the Beatles and has since seen a proliferation of temples, ashrams and meditation and yoga centres.

Another morning enjoy local sightseeing and come back to Delhi. Drop Airport, Railway station and hotel in Delhi.
