Garjiya Zone- located on the Northern periphery of Corbett Tiger Reserve was carved out of the inaccessible area of the Bijrani zone. Dedicated to the Goddess Garjiya the Entry gate lies at the end of the Dhikuli village and close to the Garjiya Forest Rest House and the foot over suspension bridge on the Kosi river, built by the British in 1898 / 99. This was the old walking trade route to Ranikhet. The Garjiya zone is extremely undulating consisting of Sal trees & mixed Deciduous forest species along with the grasslands, with small pereinial streams becoming the water source for animals. The Jeep Safaris here are a driving adventure - being in the periphery area the chnaces of sighting are Leopard are immense. The grassland areas always offer the opportunity to see Deer, Wild Boar, Elephants besides the ever present Birdlife. Every bend on the road in any zone of Corbett has a different setting and also tells a different story !
Safaris are enjoyed if you have an open mind and interested in learning about new facts of Nature that your Guide and Drivers point out.
GARJIYA Tourism zone is open throughout the year.
