Other activities that one might enjoy are river rafting, jeep safaris, nature walks and angling which are popular sports activities in summer.

Monsoon: Then is the Monsoon season which begins in the month of June and ends in the month of August. This time comes under heavy monsoon belt, which marks high rainfall. Temperatures here drop between 25 to 35-degrees and humidity increases drastically. The jungle looks very green, verdant and rejuvenated with creepers and climbers covering the forest floor.

Winter: Then is the Winter season beginning in the month of October and lasting till February. This is the busiest tourist season in Jim Corbett National Park.
