With the inclusion of the Sonanadi wildlife sanctuary to the west, Corbett has grown from 520 to 1318 sq km. Varied topography and vegetation gives Corbett a rich diversity in habitats and natural beauty. Flat valleys are interspersed with hilly ridges and the Park's rolling grasslands known as Chaurs provide an excellent view of its wildlife.
