Dhikala Zone

The Dhikala Zone is the best tourism zone located within the Jim Corbett National Park. As it is located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand, the Dhikala Zone is named after the Dhikala grassland area, which is known for its picturesque beauty and ample wildlife creatures. Dhangari Gate is the entry point of the Dhikala Zone. This is the best place to see the Hog beer which is very rarely seen. The Dhikala Zone offers visitors a special chance to explore and enjoy the beauty of the diverse flora and fauna of the Corbett National Park. It is characterized by dense forests, vast grasslands, and the Ramganga River flowing through its heart. The Ramganga River is considered the lifeline of the Corbett forest. The zone is particularly famous for its open meadows, where wildlife views are ordinary.

The Dhikala Zone gives the natural habitat to a variety of animal species, including the majestic Bengal tiger, sambar deer, Asian elephants, langurs, spotted bears, leopards, and many other reptiles and animals. It is also a birdwatcher's paradise, for around 500 species of resident and migratory birds, making it a haven for bird enthusiasts. Visitors to the Dhikala Zone can explore the area through jeep safaris or elephant safaris, accompanied by trained guides. These safaris offer an opportunity to venture deep into the wilderness and witness wildlife in their natural habitat. The zone also has several watchtowers strategically located for better wildlife viewing and photography.

Accommodation options within this Zone are limited but provide an authentic wilderness experience. Altogether the Dhikala Zone in Corbett National Park is a captivating destination for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts, offering an unforgettable experience of India's rich biodiversity and untamed wilderness.
