    We walked through the sanstuary - 3 kms one way. It was foggy and cool so a pleasant walk. The food at the canteen at the end of the trek was really good.  more »

    Nothing apart from good weather!! No wildlife, unexplained cost tickets, hell of a roadway !! Okay with whatever it is. Government could make this a Super experience if spending is done wisely.

    It is a place away from noise and hustle of the traffic. It is a place of wild animals as told but won't see any for sure. There is a rest house inside which opens only in summer season. Here is a small canteen inside where you can enjoy tea, Maggi and pakodas etc. Walking in treks is enjoyful. From checkpoint it is 1 km approx which can be covered on foot to enjoy natural beauty of the place. Guide is available though not needed at all. In winters this place is generally covered with snow.

    The Forest rest house is as should be. Inside the widerness. About 1.5 hours drive from the gate. Basic amenities are available. No trekking inside the forest is necessary. But it will be advisable if only electric cars are allowed inside the forest. with dozens of ill maintained cars roaring through the forest you cannot expect to see wildlife. I found some people walking too. This should be banned. Forest must be respected.

Where to stay in Chamba

Less touristed than some other nearby cities, Chamba usually has plenty of accommodations available, unless you're coming for a festival. This also means that prices don't change much from season to season. However, if a large event is taking place in the city during your visit, be sure to book ahead of time. Choose from a few dozen hotels, resorts, and guesthouses; you'll find something for almost every budget, though some lie much farther from the center.
