Ramganga River along with its tribuataries, Palain, Mandal and Sonanadi serve as key hydrological resource for jim corbett national park. Ramganga River which is a tributary of the mighty Ganges, originates in Doodhatoli ranges of the Himalayas and flows out south-west to pass through Jim Corbett Park. Ramganga River is much popular amongst anglers for 'Mighty Mahseer' - the fighting fish and endangered fish eating ghariyal can also be seen in Corbett stretch of the river.
