Nestled within Jim Corbett National Park, the Bhandarpani zone offers a unique perspective on the park’s rich biodiversity. Unlike the core zones, Bhandarpani falls under the Teda, Bhandarpani Gate, and Pawalgarh Gate Tourism Zone, managed by the forest department. This translates to a less restricted experience, with more vehicles allowed for jeep safaris.

While spotting tigers remains a thrilling possibility, Bhandarpani’s true charm lies in its diverse landscape. Envision dense Sal forests opening into sprawling grasslands, all intersected by a network of sparkling streams. This varied terrain provides a habitat for a plethora of wildlife. Herds of deer graze peacefully, elephants trumpet their presence, and birdlife fills the air with vibrant calls.

The zone also boasts historical significance. The Sitabani temple, mentioned in the Ramayana, is a popular spot for visitors. Relax by the riverside and keep an eye out for reptiles basking in the sun.

While Bhandarpani might not guarantee a tiger sighting, it offers an excellent alternative, especially when the core zones are fully booked. The scenic beauty, diverse wildlife, and historical touch make Bhandarpani a hidden gem waiting to be explored.
