  • It's a place for nature lover. One will see wild animals up close. I got to see elephants and bear. Price of package is also affordable. For true nature lover it's heaven on earth
  • A must visit for jungle lovers. Located on the foot of the Himalayas. Have ample options for staying. Look for Forest Bungalows of Uttarakhand

  • Not so well maintained, As per website there are limited jeeps available, however it was not like that same time felt cheated after paying 3K + where people are getting the same ride at much lesser price. Not much animals.... It's not at all value for money.
  • Awesome place i can't explain in words. Visit here once. Atmosphere of this place was very good.
