Nestling in the foothills of the Himalayas, along the banks of the Ramganga River, Corbett Tiger Reserve offers different kinds of vegetation all along its varied topography. Forest consists of mixed deciduous and sal forest interspersed with Savannah grassland. The grasslands locally known as Chaurs, are limited. The largest grassland is the Dhikala Chaur. Some of the best grasslands including the famous Buxar Chaur and the Beri Chaur got submerged under the Ramganga reservoir in 1974.

Zoological Survey of India has recorded over 585 species of resident and migratory birds here.
