Jhirna zone is one of the six tourism zones of the most illustrious tiger reserve of India, Jim Corbett Reserve Park. Located on the southern edge of the Corbett reserve forest, the Jhirna zone is the home to a large variety of flora and fauna. Many years ago, this place was a village which later relocated to somewhere else and the land had been incorporated into the reserve park. The land then developed into the densely grown forest and large grassland which is home to animals like nilgai, sambhar, cheetal and wild boar. These animals attract tigers to this area which makes this zone a favorite among tourists due to higher chances of seeing a tiger.The large population of wild elephants and sloth bear also attracts wildlife enthusiasts in this zone. Along with wild animals, this zone has the amazing landscape with large grassland known as Chaur.
The Chaur is usually a favorable place for herbivore like elephants and deer, which further invites predatory carnivores like a tiger. The zone has many river channels with warm stream beds and cliff edges make it an ideal spot for birding. There are various types of birds found in this place due to which it is the best zone for bird watchers. The best thing about the Jhirna zone is that it remains open all round the year for day safari if the weather is favourable.
