Corbett Waterfalls

Corbett Waterfalls (Naya Gaon) is situated 20 kilometres from BAZPUR. Thick teak wood jungles and a narrow winding road 1.7 kilometers inside is an out of the world experience. The best thing all along has been the chirpings of birds in the background and sound of flowing water.
The Corbett Waterfalls is surrounded by dense forests, the 20 mts. high fall is simply a sight to behold! Famous as the ideal camping hide out, this spot now has become a major tourist attraction. The Corbett Waterfalls, a small but awesome view, is in the backdrop of scenic greenish forest. Full Moon light colored waterfall is really worth-while to observe. The area is admired as a camping site with a vast diversity of plants and birds. The wide area around the water falls provides very good parking and camping facilities. It is a very nice picnic spot.

Jim Corbett House/ Jim Corbett Museum:

Jim Corbett Museum (Kaladhungi) is situated 25 kilometres from BAZPUR. It's a place called Jim’s house, which is now converted into a museum. Many visitors to Corbett National Park are not aware of this wonderful place.
Its an old place. The place is clean with lawns and flora well preserved and having a laid-back leisure charm in it. There are plaques, life size oil paintings, lots of text about Jim and his family, some of his furniture etc. It won't take you too long to cover the place but do take time out to read about him and his beliefs on eco-village, a model village. Often this place is not frequented by many and with its rusty old world building it gives a contrast feeling.

Garjia Mata Temple:

An ancient temple of Garjia Devi is situated on the way to Dikhala from Ramnagar. Garjia Devi temple is situated on a huge rock in the midst of river Kosi. A large fair is held here on Karthik Purnima. It's a small boondock named after "Garjiya Devi Temple". The temple here is sacred place of pilgrimage or devi ka mandir (temple of Goddess) built over a mammoth rock in the centre of Kosi River.
A daily worship is offered to the temple goddess who is believed to protect her followers of all bad omens. A unique belief of the locals residing here is that the temple never submerges even during heavy floods, and is supposed to have existed for years without being effected. The sanctum sanctorum showcases its best during Kartik Poornima Fair, held once a year.

Sitavani:

Sita Vani, as the name suggests, is associated with the Ramayana, a Hindu epic. It is believed that Sita, the protagonist of Ramayana, spent her days stranded in exile during the agnipariksha episode. Sitabani is a birdwatchers’ paradise and there is an ashram tucked away in the jungle. Panthers and other wildlife move to Sitabani when the tourist season is on in Corbett.
