Jim Corbett National Park (Nainital and Pauri district, Uttarakhand) spreads over an area of 520 sq km. The Jim Corbet National Park also includes the Patli Dun valley, formed by the Ramganga River. In 1936 the park was demarcated as a reserve area by the British Government and named ‘Hailey National Park’. Prior to 1936, the Maharaja of Rewa exploited this place to please his hunting pleasure. In 1954-55 this place was renamed for the first time, as 'Ramganga National Park'. The next year, it was renamed once again and called 'Jim Corbett National Park'. Jim Corbett National Park was declared as a tiger reserve on 1st April 1973.
