Jim Corbett National Park in the Himalayan foothills is one of the most well-known nature reserves in India. It is an excellent location to observe tigers and other wildlife in their natural habitat, and as a result thousands of tourists visit each year.

Rivers and lakes are often the best places to encounter wildlife in any nature reserve, as animals tend to gravitate around sources of water. In Corbett, the dry season brings with it a stark transmogrification: the river bed becomes completely dry, and lush greenery fades to parched shrubbery. Thus spotting animals during this period becomes much more difficult.
