• Jim Corbett with Nainitaal: Nature's Bounty

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

Why did we choose Jim Corbett?

The Jim Corbett National Park is India’s first national wildlife reserve. Our journey to Corbett and Nainital will be a thrilling adventure as students explore wildlife along with an experience of living in the midst of natural surroundings. In Nainital, they will get acquainted with the picturesque erstwhile summer retreat of the British, a quaint, timeless tourist destination nestled around the beautiful Naini lake.

What does this journey offer?

This journey introduces students to the rich natural heritage and ecosystem of the Terai region. They get to observe wildlife within their natural habitat and can further explore the concepts related to food-chain, migration, poaching and ecotourism. Nainital allows students to unwind. They get to understand the importance of conserving our natural heritage for promoting tourism.
