India's oldest National Park is closed during the monsoons as specific areas around the park become too dangerous with the oncoming of the showers. However, this shouldn't stop you from making your way to areas surrounding it. If you do wish to visit the park during the heavy rains, the Jhirna zone is kept open. Jeep safaris are available in the mornings and will take you to the buffer area of the park the park, the Sitabani zone for a duration of three hours. 25km away from the city of Ramnagar lies the Corbett Waterfall, a gift from Mother Nature, where one can see as the water cascading down the rocks from a height of 60ft against the backdrop of a serene surrounding. Afterwards, you can take a drive to the Garjia Temple, located 14km from Ramnagar and the mid of river Kosi. Drive a little further and you'll reach the Sitabani Forest Reserve where legend, if believed, is that Goddess Sita spent her days in exile here. The Sitabani Temple is also nearby and is where Goddess Sita is believed to have entered Mother Earth.
