Originally christened the Hailey National Park, it was renamed the Ramganga National Park in 1955-56, and finally Jim Corbett National Park in the honour of the legendary hunter-turned- conservationist, best known for hunting man-eating tigers and leopards in the Kumaon and lower Garhwal in the 1920s. The main animals found in the national park include the tiger, elephant, chital, sambar, nilgai, gharial, king cobra, wild boar, hedgehog, common musk shrew, flying fox, Indian pangolin, and nearly 600 species of birds. The Park receives thousands of visitors every year and a variety of facilities are available to house tourists within and outside the Park.
