It is a sal forest in Shivalik Hills, a name given to the foot-hills of the Himalayas is spread across 11,000 acres (45 km2).

The elevation varies from 2000 to 3,500 ft (1,100 m).

Geologically speaking the Shivaliks belong to the tertiary deposits of the outer Himalayas and are chiefly composed of low sandstone and conglomerate hills, the solidified and upheaved detritus of the great range in their rear.

We were greeted by a large number of monkeys... We could just see peacocks, deer and antelopes there. It's a challenge to view many animals in the afternoon. Thus is it advisable to go on the first safari of the day at 6:00 hours in the morning. It is a must-do activity and an amazing place for nature lovers and people.
