Corbett National Park’s New Route to open from Kotdwar

Forest Minister, Dr Harak Singh Rawat said that for boosting tourism in the state two new gates of Corbett National Park will be opened at Kotdwar. This decision is taken to lure the wildlife lovers for exploring the diversity of wildlife offered at the national park. While addressing the media, Forest Minister Dr Rawat said that two new gates will be opened from Kotdwar. Since these gates will be close to Delhi, it will cut off the travelling distance up to Ramnagar which in turn will attract more tourists towards it.
