About Kosi river

The eastern periphery of Corbett National Park is entirely fed by the Kosi River that flows from Mohan till Ramnagar via Dhikuli. While the river does not enter the park, the wild animals use the river water for quenching their thirst, especially during pinch periods. The Kosi river bed is filled with boulders and its flow is erratic and often changes course. The river is unpredictable and notorious by nature. It often brings torrents and causes destruction during monsoon season. Some of the nearby places to Kosi River are Bujan, Betal Ghat, Corbett National Park, Garjiya Devi temple, Amdana, Ramnagar etc.
