Authorities in Uttarakhand's Corbett Tiger Reserve have re-opened the famous Bijrani zone for visitors after a gap of four months, an official said here on Monday.
The Bijrani zone generally opens for the visitors from Oct 15 to June 15. But this year, the opening was delayed by two days due to ongoing repair of routes within the tiger reserve.
Most of the routes were damaged due to recent heavy rains.
"The Bijrani zone was opened on Sunday after damaged routes were repaired," a warden of the reserve said.
He said advance booking for visiting the reserve would start later this week.
For morning and evening visit to the reserve, the current booking would start at 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. respectively.
According to the official, permits for only 30 vehicles would be issued for morning or evening visits.
