The historical FRH of Sitabani was built in 1940 and is located 27 km from Ramnagar on the Powalgarh road at an elevation of 515m perched on a hilltop. One can also take the forest road from Bhandarpani to Sitabani. There is a watch tower in the FRH compound, ideal for bird watchers. The ancient Sitabani Temple, a national monument under the Archaeological Survey of India, is close to the FRH which also has a sulphur spring. There are several caves in the forest around the FRH.
