Award-winning tourism professional and speaker turned author, Akash Bhardwaj’s Debut book on Jim Corbett national park, titled “Corbett Rashtriya Udyaan – Manoranjan ki Vyakulta, Shoshit Hota Corbett” was recently launched by Ankush Nijhawan, MD, Nijhawan Group & Co-Founder, TBO Group.
Established in the year 1936 as Hailey National Park, Corbett has the glory of being India’s oldest and most prestigious National Park. The book is a result of the learnings from the experience that Akash has gained in the past decade, working for the Jim Corbett National Park. In the book, he talks about how tourism has started becoming a cause of conflict between humans and wildlife and offers several solutions and aims to educate tourists as well as tourism industry professionals to learn from and help conserve wildlife and maintain a healthy balance between humans and nature.
Ankush Nijhawan, MD, Nijhawan Group & Co-Founder, TBO Group, said “It is a very proud moment for our industry, for the first time someone with such a passion and dedication has written about the Jim Corbett National Park, Akash has been covering the National Park for over 10 years.
“There is a perception that the Jim Corbett National Park is just about the Tigers, however, once you read the book you will learn about the other wildlife and what all one can do in Jim Corbett. Akash’s work in this book is really commendable and I really wish the colleagues from the tourism industry to read this book, give it to your clients, and more importantly, educate your teams with what Jim Corbett has to offer other than just tigers.”
The Author, Akash Bhardwaj, CEO, Khaas Travels said “I have summarised all my learnings from my experience of over 10 years working for the National Park, in this book. As the title suggests, the definition of wildlife in the area is changing very fast. While everyone comes to see the national park, we must understand that Tiger itself is not the wildlife, it’s a part of the wildlife. So, when traveling to any wildlife reserve, the focus should also be on all forms of wildlife and not just the tigers.
“The book has all the information on where and how to go and all activities that you can do there. Anyone who wishes to visit a nature reserve or in particular Jim Corbett National Park should read this book, you will find answers to all your questions in it.
