Rivers and Major Water Sources at Jim Corbett National Park
For the survival of such a remarkable gamut of floral and faunal species in Jim Corbett National Park , water is a crucial factor. The spectacular avifaunal diversity that present in Jim Corbett National Park owes its survival to the two rivers that flow through Jim Corbett Park- River Ramganga (West) and River Kosi. Ramganga River along with its tribuataries, Palain, Mandal and Sonanadi serve as key hydrological resource for Jim Corbett Park. Ramganga River is a tributary of mighty Ganges, originates in Doodhatoli ranges of Himalayas and flows out south-west to pass through the Jim Corbett National Park. Ramganga river is much popular amongst anglers for the 'Mighty Mahseer' - the fighting fish. The endangered fish eating ghariyal can also be seen in Jim Corbett stretches of Ramganga River.
However, due to presence of Kosi River at tourist hub Dhikuli where vanya river resorts is located, the River Kosi has a more immediate connect with the travellers to the region. River Kosi flows in close proximity to Jim Corbett Park and not properly through it, yet it provides for the birds and animals around Jim Corbett Park a cruical source of water, especially so during the dry season. For angling and fishing enthusiasts, the best time to visit the Jim Corbett National Park is from early October to mid December and then again from mid of February for the next four months. Vanya River Lodge is situated on the bank of river Kosi & Angling Camp on the bank of river Ramganaga at Bhikiasen.
Ramganga river is crucial for Jim Corbett infact without it there would be no Jim Corbett Park. It is the largest of the precious few perennial sources of water inside Jim Corbett Park. A rain-fed river originating near Gairsain in the Lower Himalayas, the Ramganga traverses more than 100 km before entering Jim Corbett Park near Bhikiasen. Inside the Jim Corbett Park it flows roughly 40 km till Kalagarh where it enters the plains. During this run through Jim Corbett Park it gathers waters from the Palain, Mandal and Sonanadi rivers.
Ramganga River is inhabited by key aquatic species like mahseer fish, the endangered gharials, mugger crocodiles, otters and turtles. Many species of birds, like kingfishers, fish-eagles, terns and storks depend on River Ramganga. During winters the Ramganga reservoir attracts many migratory bird species, especially waterbirds from Europe and Central Asia.
Kosi River is a perennial river like Ramganga river and its catchment lies partially in Jim Corbett NP. From Mohan through Dhikuli till Ramnagar, Kosi river forms the eastern boundary of Jim Corbett National Park. Even though Kosi river does not enter Jim Corbett Park boundary, wild animals from Jim Corbett use it for drinking especially during pinch periods. Vanya River Lodge is a cheap and best stay option, close to Kosi river. The beds of Kosi river are strewn with boulders and its flow is erratic and often changes course. Kosi river is notorious for its unpredictable and damaging torrents during monsoon. Like Ramganga river, River Kosi too is inhabited by mahseer and attracts migratory birds.
