When it comes to wildlife photography in India, Corbett National Park is certainly a dream location for most wildlife lovers out there. The gigantic sal woods, the roars of the Bengal Tiger, the songs of the avian wonders or the trumpets of the gentle giants, it all adds up to the sheer beauty of this pristine forest situated in the Himalayan foothills. Summers in this forest are a great time to watch the herds of Elephants cross the mighty Ramganga during the early hours of the morning, or a Tiger walk across the banks, or maybe both! This park offers a plethora of photo opportunities that are all what you need to weave your visual stories from the wild.
