Sitabani is a forest in the Uttarakhand and is a wildlife corridor for elephants. Sitabani is about 23 kilometers from Ramnagar. Summer is a good time to visit this forest as many animals can be seen. Many wild animals like barking deer, Indian mongoose, common langur, wild boars and Himalayan black bears can be spotted. In the summers, elephants can be seen in herds. Permits are issued for jeep and elephant safaris but it is recommended to apply for permits well in advance. There is an ashram inside the park dedicated to the Hindu deity- Sita, and it is after her that this forest is named. Sitabani is the only area, inside the Jim Corbett national park, where one can get out of the jeep and walk free. There are no resorts inside Sitabani, but there are several places to stay near Ramnagar.
