Jim Corbett is one of the most popular national parks in North India, especially if you’re a nature enthusiast. One of the most popular activities here is the jungle safari. People usually go on a safari to spot tigers in Jim Corbett. However, this activity turned into a bone-chilling encounter for a group of people that they’ll remember forever. In a video shared on Instagram by Joju Wildjunket, a tiger is seen jumping out of the bushes and roaring fiercely at the jeep carrying a bunch of tourists.
The safari jeep was parked in the Garjia zone of Jim Corbett and waiting for the nearby tiger. When the tiger finally emerged, it wasn’t as calm as you’d usually expect from tigers in this reserve. According to the post, it roared so ferociously at the humans that it sent “shivers through the air.”
As per the caption on the now-viral video, “The air was thick with tension as the Gypsy cautiously retreated, witnessing the untamed beauty of the wild in a thrilling encounter.”
