This small town in Uttarakhand is a gateway to the oldest national park, the Jim Corbett National park which is a famous tourist destination of India and is visited by many people from all across the country. The Sita Bani temple located nearby also attracts many pilgrims from far and wide.

Thick teak wood jungles cover the entire region and a thin winding road passes through the beautiful jungle. This road stretches for 1.7 kilometers and leads to the Corbett falls. The entire route leading to the water falls is splendid and instantly wins over the hearts of visitors. The soothing sound of the waterfalls and the birds chirping in the background make the experience even better.

These falls are 4 km away from Kaladhungi along the Kaladhungi-Ramnagar highway and are easily accessible. The dense forest cover, with complete silence opens into the marvelous sight of the Corbett falls where water falls from a height of 20 meters.

The silvery sparkling water stream cascades through the dense swaying green cover. The falls are surrounded by Himalayan Mountains that enhance the beauty of the falls even further. The Corbett falls provide a perfect location for camping and this is the main reason for the rise in popularity of the falls among nature lovers and tourists. The sound of gushing water blends perfectly with the melodious chirping of the birds and the Corbett falls are a perfect hideout from the busy and noisy city life.


The ancient name of Ramnagar was Ahichhatra and it was the capital of the Northern Panchala during the time of Mahabharat. This shows how historically significant the town of Ramnagar is. Commissioner H. Ramsay was the one who re established the city and settled it from the year 1956 to 1984.  Tea gardens were developed in the entire region during the British rule in India. But, these tea gardens no longer exist as they were closed many years ago. Corbett falls and the nearby Jim Corbett national park have been named after Jim Corbett who was a hunter turned conservationist. He played a major in establishment of the national park.
