Jhirna Zone is a part of the park which offers some exclusive sight of the sloth bear and the tiger. The area falls under a large grassland known as the Laldhang Chaur. There are numerous water streams in this zone and this zone is considered excellent for bird watching. This area is the favourite area of herbivores like chitals, deers and nilgai which attracts animals like tigers in the range. There is a Forest Rest House where tourists can rest in the Jhirna Zone.
This zone of the Corbett national Park was added much later in 1994 in order to increase the tiger reserve. The Jhirna village and two other villages were included in the territory of the National park and these villages were relocated to some other place.
