Driving on jungle roads is exciting hoping to see an animal, most of the time you can spot monkeys, some deers , wild boars, and elephants herds can be spotted during evening times, I have almost driven on all the roads inside and outside of the park many many times ..mostly from chila side....in last 20 years in all season but I never came across a tiger. For some driving pleasure ..drive past the chila dam and drive on narrow road along side ganga canal upto Rishikesh. Be careful road is narrow. Many good photo points on the way .
This place it's awesome I love nature It is like speaking loudly to be up to me that's life, and so is peace. And when a person is not allowed after 6:00 pm.
