Book Online



The Corbett tiger reserve’s southernmost region is where the Jhirna forest zone is located. It is one of the park’s six zones, and it was opened in 1994. There are many different types of plants and animals in the area. The only two forest zones that are open all year round are the Jhirna and Dhela zones. Throughout monsoon season, several areas of the park are still off-limits to visitors.

The Royal Bengal tigers’ primary range in the Corbett national park is the Jhirna forest zone. These animals can hunt and live freely in this area since it is covered in lush forests and vast meadows. This area is home to tigers, nilgai, sambhar, cheetahs, and wild boars in addition to tigers.


The Jhirna forest zone’s center is where you’ll find the Jhirna woodland rest house. The only lodging option in the area is the Jhirna woodland lodge, which has four rooms available for overnight rental. A guest is only permitted to reserve 2 rooms in his name at a time for a maximum 3-day period.

The Jhirna Forest Rest House offers rooms that are spacious enough for comfortable overnight stays and have an attached bathroom. There is a restricted supply of electricity here because it is solar-powered. Visitors must bring their own food to the lodge, and the cook will make dishes based on their preferences. Alcoholic beverages and non-vegetarian food cannot be brought. Photo credit.


Visitors must enter through the Dhela gate, which is 15 km from Ramnagar, in order to reach the Jhirna forest lodge. Day trips to this area are permitted all year long, but the Jhirna Forest Rest House is only open for overnight stays from 15 November to 15 June.


The main attraction in the Jhirna woodland region is the day jeep safari. There are 30 jeeps overall, and they operate in two shifts. The safari lasts for around three hours and thirty minutes in total. Visitors can see many birds and animals while on the safari. After the safari, guests can unwind in a sizable, open enclosure next to the Jhirna woodland rest lodge. All tourists must reserve a guide and jeep safari in advance.
