Most of the people consider the rules and regulations as a means to erase the adventure or fun from the national parks. These rules are made only to ensure that you and the bio diversity of the park are safe and sound. The unwanted activities often seize out the fun and could be hazardous. To ensure you enjoy your stay to the fullest at the Corbett National Park, here are few rules that you should strictly follow to maintain the decorum and integrity of the National Park.
No firearms are allowed inside the reserve, you are here to experience wildlife not hunting.
You cannot carry your pets inside; this is the home of wild animals you don't want to create havoc by introducing a new animal.
Wandering, trekking and getting down from the jeep is not allowed, it is for your own safety.
No driving in the park after sunset, it is not safe for both animals and you. Many animals are nocturnal and this might create disruption in their routine night life.
A safe distance should be maintained between you and the animals at all times. In short their life should not be disturbed by your presence.
Non vegetarian food is not allowed, you don't want to invite some unwanted friends from the jungle.
