Corbett National Park, amidst flora and fauna, is the perfect destination for cycle enthusiasts and nature lovers. It is one of the oldest national parks, which promises quintessential experiences while you bike.

During your biking experience, you can expect to explore a large variety of bird species, the lush greenery, and the beautiful views. However, Corbett National Park is also known for fishing and angling, so don’t forget to take a break and try those too.

The tour will include discovering 521sq km of plant and abounding animal kingdom, reverie belts, water holes, and other things. It is serene throughout the year. However, if you want to know the best time, it is mentioned hereunder.

Which is the peak season to visit in Corbett on a bike?

If you want to enjoy the thrill of touring Corbett, the realm of nature, on cycle, the best time to visit is from November to February. This is the time of the year when the weather is great, and all spots are open for tourists to explore.

Not to forget, during the month starting from November to February, the most popular areas, the Dhikala and Birjani Zone, are open to catch a glimpse of the Royal Bengal Tiger. Also, most animals come out during this particular season only, unlike summer, where they can be barely seen.

The above is the touring factor. Now, speaking about the riding factor during this period, the tracks are in the best condition. This is because, at the time of monsoon, the park often gets closed. So, if you are planning an unforgettable getaway on your bike, Corbett is a spot where you can make many memories.

Exploring Corbett in Different Season

Jim Corbett In Summer

Visiting Jim Corbett in summer is like making a fresh escape into lush greenery. Although the temperature is high, crossing 40degree Celsius during the day, summer is one of the best times to visit Corbett on a bike. It is because all the five zones of the national park are open during that time. But as the sun is on top, the riders often find it draining to complete their tour, so they take showers between the trek.

The roads are clear with maximum gates open, thus perfect to avoid the untravelled road and to travel unnecessary distance. During this time of the year, the leaves are dried out so you can see them on your trekking track.

However, remember if you are planning to explore Corbett during summer, be prepared for the scorching heat and temperature during the season. Try to wear comfortable, airy and cotton clothes. Additionally, carry lots of water to stay hydrated throughout the adventure.  

Jim Corbett In Monsoon

If planning a budget holiday, the monsoon is the best time for you. As it is offseason, prices of most of the things have dropped, there’s not much crowd, and you can complete your trip just like the way you want. In other words, you will not have to wait for others to clear the path. Moreover, you will be able to enjoy the natural scenery of Corbett without any hustle and bustle.

It is also a great time to cycle trekking as the temperature drop during the time of the year, and you can clearly see the verdant landscape around the park. However, a cyclist needs to be extra careful because of possible landslides and soil erosion instances during monsoon.

Jim Corbett In Winter

Winter is a great time to explore Corbett. The beautiful surround and the cool temperature make it soothing to explore Corbett on cycle. Moreover, it is the best chance to spot the famous Royal Bengal Tiger venturing out and soaking itself up in the sun.

However, make sure you are covering yourself up appropriately against the freezing air you will feel on your body while you cycle around the park. You can expect an average temperature of 15degree Celsius during the day and 5degree Celsius during the night.
