Kosi River Overview

Ranked 2 of 17 sightseeing in Corbett

Kosi River is a famous spot for fishing and angling activities. During the fishing season that ranges from October till mid-December, and from mid-February to June end, enthusiasts can catch mahseer at the river. Permits for fishing can be arranged via resorts and jungle lodges located around Kosi River.

A perennial river, its catchment lies partially in Corbett National Park. The river forms the eastern boundary of Corbett National Park, from Mohan through Dhikuli till Ramnagar. Wild animals from Corbett use it for drinking, especially during pinch periods, although the river does not enter the park.

Bed of the river is strewn with boulders, due to which its flow is erratic and often changes course. Damaging torrents during monsoon have given the river the status of being notorious. Due to its inhabitation by mahseer, the river allures migratory birds.

Good River flowing through Dhikuli area

Kosi river flows through Dhikuli area of Corbett. All main resorts in Corbett are situated alongside this River and provide a beautiful River view from rooms. The water was quite clean. Though there was not much water when we stayed in Corbett but when there was silence at night we could easily hear beautiful sounds of flowing water from our resort. I could imagine how great it would be when there is good flow in the River. My cousins also spotted many Foxes and Jackals alongside the River.

Place of relax

If you are in a busy life and failed to take a breath in peace or you are confused to take any important decision, then move to the bank of Kosi river. Sit there for 10-15 minute, enjoy the scenery of Himalayans, next you will find that your problem was solved. If enough lucky then can see the deer family are coming to drink water in dusk.

The best thing to try here is the elephant ride

It runs next to the mountains. It didn't have much water in the month of May, when we visited. Hence we could easily sit on its banks with our feet dipped in. There was canoeing in the river which was wonderful experience. We also did fun fishing which was quite expensive. The best thing to try here is the elephant ride as they take you on an elephant inside the jungles. It was fun.

Very clean and roaring River

Very clean River and you can consider sitting on its banks for a long duration with a novel in your hand. Many resorts are situated on the banks of Kosi too.
