Corbett's winter home at Kaladhungi or Choti Haldwani at the base of the Kumaon foothills is now a well preserved museum. It lies on the way from Haldwani to Ramnagar. Jim Corbett was a naturalist and conservationist. He rose to fame for his skill in hunting maneater tigers and leaopards. He has many books to his credit, including ‘The Maneaters of Kumaon’. Jim Corbett National Park was renamed after him in 1957. He was born on 25 July 1875 in Nainital (Kumaon Himalayas, India).

We kept silent as per the norms of a jungle safari, which enabled us to watch the tiger for about fifteen minutes at a spot. Any sort of action with a tiger in front of us could have got all of us in big trouble as a one year old tiger is big enough to hunt any animal except the elephant.

Lecturer Roli Rai and son Pranav thought it a wise idea to take off to Ramnagar in the Kumaon hills for a breath of fresh air. A weekend with nature at Jim Corbett National Park was all that the duo needed to relax.
