Edutour – Jim Corbett National Park & Nainital 2020
Our visit to the glorious Jim Corbett National park treading towards Tiger conservation and the picturesque Nainital was a rip-roaring experience for learners of Grades VII and IX. They explored the pristine wilderness of the park in an open jeep safari vehicle where they caught glimpses of a tigress with her cubs, wild elephant, leopard and different species of deers and monkeys. The learners also actively participated in some adventure activities at an Adventure park in Corbett. Learners got an opportunity to visit Jim Corbett’s quaint village at Kaladhungi at the base of the Kumaon foothills and indulged in mouth watering Kumaoni cuisine and their delicious dessert ‘Bal mithai’. The cold spell at Nainital was soothing and refreshing. Our learners enjoyed boating at the Naini lake and had an amazing view of the snow capped mountains travelling in the aerial ropeway. The Botanical garden in Nainital inspired the learners to know more about various rare plants and flowers. They also explored the Eco cave garden, which comprises a cluster of interconnected natural rocky caves – an excellent example of nature and man’s combined effort. This tour brought our learners very close to nature, which made them realise the importance of conserving the flora and fauna around us.
