  • A less crowded wildlife sanctuary with rich diversity of flora and fauna. Best visited during dry season as the animals come out of hideout for water but pure eye-candy during rainy season. It is quite possible and safe for a camping as there are designated camping sites with basic facilities.
  • This place has 3 circuit bungalows and 4 camp sites. All are situated with a nice view and near a river. You can see elephants, bears, spot dear and lot more animals. If you are lucky enough you might see leopard as well. Elephants here is bit aggressive hence bit causes. Best time to travel is around November to April because with rain forecast is so green and new life.
