  • Beautiful place..Gives you a feel of jungle trail. There are two trails the one I took covered 800+1000mts in total. It's a worthwhile time here. If you're lucky and patient enough, you'll see birds too. I spent 2 hours here. Tickets cost around 3450 for two. Do bring in your camera and click your time away.
  • This place is a forest, public can access after obtaining a ticket at the entrance. Concrete walking path is available and must use it. About 4km to walk. All around forest and several birds can be seen.
  • May be the only National park in the midst of a city. Calm and quite walking pathways lead you to explore the tranquility of the forest reserve with a sizable amount of flaura and fauna
  • One of the best place for nature lovers and wildlife photography. 2.8KMs concrete path through Park. Hard to find birds evening time. It's very dark inside the park (some areas) Recommended to visit sunny days. Good place visit with kids. Around 2-3 Celsius drop inside the park. Get a ticket to enter the park.
  • A small forest. 2.5 km can be used to walk through the forest path. Mornings and evenings is best for animals to watch.
