Captivating Corbett: Photo Diary Part I

In March of this year, I was invited to spend some time at up in the North, at Corbett Riverside Resort. Nestled in the sub-Himalayan geographical belt, Corbett National Park has a wealth of flora and fauna that attract wildlife lovers from across the world. 

Serpentine dry river beds, marshy swamp-lands, densely forested hills and thick grasslands make up the topography. Pictures don’t do justice to the incredibly beautiful natural landscapes, but I tried to capture a few precious moments on my Sony point-and-shoot. Here are a few glimpses from my first day on safari in Corbett National Park’s Birjani zone (which my friends and I fondly referred to as the ‘Biryani’ zone).

With such good camouflage like this, the Tigers were probably having the last laugh!
