Another important destination is the Garjiya Devi Temple, located near Ramnagar, on the outskirts of Corbett National Park. This temple is considered a sacred sanctuary, created naturally by mud and mud displaced during a flood more than 150 years ago.
Surrounded by the tributary of the Kosi River, the temple has a strong religious character and the local population retains a plethora of stories about its creation and existence.
Above, about 26 kilometers from Ramnagar, the Corbett waterfalls, on the Ramnagar-Kaladhungi road, surrounded by a dense teak forest, are the ideal place to enjoy the beauty of the site. Although these cascades of about twenty meters are not monumental and swimming is forbidden, their natural beauty is nonetheless noticeable. It is reached by a small path of a kilometer and a half at the beginning of the road.
A large part of the park extends along the Kosi, where visitors can practice rafting and zip-line from the Suspension bridge that climbs the river. However, you must first obtain permission from the park authorities. Fishermen can enjoy the golden mahseer, a kind of Indian carp, in the waters of Ramganga and Kosi. These tents also attract many migratory birds. Fishing is only allowed outside the boundaries of the park.
30 kilometres north of Corbett Park, the Museum is popular with tourists. The panorama of the majestic Himalayas and their tree-lined ridges then prolongs Corbett's adventure.
Erected on a huge rock in the middle of the river, the temple began to live the enthusiasm only in the 40s. In recent years it has been preserved and rebuilt several times by the authorities.
