Jim Corbett National Park, a place that inspires a sense of majesty and wonder with its lush green forests and rivers, has been the haunt of nature lovers since it was established in 1936. It is home to more than 650 species of mammals and reptiles. Nestled in the valley between the Lesser Himalayas and the Shivaliks, the park offers a peek into the lives of the 200 Bengal tigers that inhabit the forest.

Other than its wildlife, Jim Corbett is also known for the local food and cuisine. Delicacies from around the area can be best experienced at the in-house restaurant of Club Mahindra Resort Corbett. Here are some famous local delights available at the Club Mahindra Resort Corbett.

Bhatt Ki Churkani

Palak Ka Kappa

Another authentic Kumaoni dish, this is a curry made of Palak (Spinach) with local spices added to it. It is cooked in the Pahadi style that gives it its distinctive flavour.

Bhaang Ki Khatai

This is a unique kind of khatai, made from the seeds of Bhaang. It is soft in texture and is unlike the regular biscuit khatais.
