Sitabani is a famous zone for bird watching. Only forest in Corbett where tourists can walk inside, it is known for a temple and river. At the site, tourists can take rest at the river bank and see the reptiles. Its association with the Ramayana, a Hindu epic, is corroborated by legends that state that Sita, the protagonist of Ramayana, spent her days stranded in exile during the agnipariksha episode. Managed by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India), the site is a birdwatchers’ paradise and has an ashram tucked away in the jungle. When the tourist season is at its peak in Corbett National Park, panthers and other wildlife move to Sitabani. The forest is home to tigers, elephants and other wildlife. It is believed that at the ancient Valmiki temple located within the forest, Sita was supposedly absorbed by the earth. The forest is visited by tourists for enjoying elephant safari, for which Sitabani forest department issues the permit.
