Bijrani is unquestionably a must-see for tourists and animal enthusiasts due to its distinctive geography. The more you explore Bijrani, the more unexplored it appears, and this trend continues until you enter the Corbett national park's interior.

In reality, the rippling streams and Lantana shrubs that line the ridges give the area a very natural and daring sense. Going across the creek would be a fantastic idea for true wildlife enthusiasts, as it may easily bring a Royal Bengal tiger to their attention, if nothing else.

Bijrani is a tourist destination with a wide range of wildlife, including tigers, wild dogs, jackals, sloth bears, barking deer, Indian Python, Leopard, King Cobra, and elephants, as well as a variety of reptiles and, of course, some uncommon bird species.

The Bijrani Forest Lodge is nestled amid the rich greenery of the lovely forests. It provides a night stay facility with six rooms, comprising four double-bed rooms, two single-bed rooms, and one dormitory with four beds. All the rooms are very cozy, comforting, and clean with all kinds of basic amenities provided.

The Amdanda gate is the entrance gate to the Bijrani zone, where you can go on a safari and stay at the Bijrani forest lodge. It is around 2 kilometres from Ramnagar city. The forest rest house is located 7 kilometres from the Aamdanda Gate. The rest home is around 9 kilometers from Ram Nagar, deep into the jungle. It also has a well-kept canteen with appropriate mess facilities, where you can sample a wide range of delectable cuisine given in a buffet format at a very reasonable price.

Every year, the Bijrani Gate opens on the 15th of October, although the forest lodge accommodation is available from the 15th of November until the 15th of June.
