  • It's a quiet and calm place. You can enjoy the afternoon here. Great area to enjoy the nature. Look out for the tigers. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one. But who knows, maybe you'll find all at once.
  • Lovely place for tourists .... Just wow .... Perfect for couples and bachelors too.... I just loved it.... But remember the timings... Opens after 2 pm.... And a perfect place to visit with family and kids to see the rare species like tigers.... All the best
  • It's must visit place in Haridwar. Place for Nature and wildlife lovers. As we can see greenery is not much left. This place provides freshness in air and some of most beautiful animals. Even in sizzling hot summer you will find this place relaxing. Here are some resorts. And a beautiful temple inside forest. Little streams you can take bath in as well jungle safari gives you special chances to see some of beautiful animals in their natural habitat. Which in not much left natural though. It gives you sensation of natural beauty. Though everyone ruins it by their presence. Am more of animal lover. But try to keep yourself in their place. And imagine animals come to visit to see most distributive animal on this planet. Still nobody cares. Just like last rhino just died his death will go in vain because people treat them as animals for entertainment. Instead of leaving them alone in their natural place.
  • This is very famous national park in Uttrakhand. You can do night safari here. Its better to reach there early morning till 7 AM. Then you can get tickets easily. Otherwise it will rush there
  • Best if you visit it early morning. Wear warm clothes and gloves as the temperature will be -2 to -3°C(early morning only). The total distance will be 36Km. You are lucky if you get to see tiger or elephant. The only mode of transport inside it is a open jeep. Also one gunmen will travel alongside you.
