Jim Corbett National Park has a temperate climate. Like
the rest of India, Corbet also experiences the three
distinct seasons, namely summer, winter and monsoon. The
rare species of wildlife, which finds refuge in the
wildlife reserve, is well-adapted to these seasonal
variations and temperature. For the convenience of both
the animals as well as the tourists, the park remains open
between the months of November and June, which agreeably
is the best time to visit the park. However, to prepare
yourself for the expedition, it is necessary to know the
weather and climatic conditions of the place.
The summer season commences from the month of March and
lasts till mid-June. The days can be very hot during this
time, with the temperature crossing the 40o C mark most of
the times. The scorching heat of the sun becomes quite
unbearable for the animals as well as the inhabitants.
Also, a hot wind, specific to the region blows throughout
the day, during summers. As a result, a thick cloud of
suspended dust develops over the region, which is cleared
by occasional thunderstorms.
The onset of the monsoon is witnessed in mid-June, which
lasts up too October. The rain showers bring respite to
the parching landscape from the blazing temperature. The
weather becomes quite pleasant with the drop in
temperature. However, the park is closed for the tourists
during the rainy season because this is primarily the
mating season of most of the animals. Apart from this, the
area is also prone to soil erosion and land slides which
can prove to be risky. During monsoons, the humidity soars
up to 98 percent, making the weather very sultry.
Winter months from November to February are ideal to
explore the bounds of the park. During this time, the park
heartily welcomes all the tourists. The weather is balmy
during this time of the year. The humidity level also
drops down to about 57%. Animals are also easily visible
during this time as they come out to bask in the sun.
While the days are delightful, the nights are fairly cold.
The night temperature can fall down to 5o C. During the
night, a local wind known as 'dadu' blows in the region,
lowering the temperature significantly.
