The site renowned for its ski slopes is a natural habitat of rich flora and fauna with about 140 species. Along with the park, the state government has set up a Potato Research Centre.

Spread over an area of 90 hectares, the Himalayan Nature Park was set up in 1992. The park also houses 'Monal', the State bird of Himachal Pradesh, also an endangered Himalayan species.

The site also has a mini zoo amidst dense forests, housing rare breeds of wild animals and pheasants of the Himalayan terrain. The attractions of the zoo include Tibetan Wolf, Brown Bear, Musk Deer and Barking Deer.

Visitors can also see Snow Leopard, Yak, Ghoral, Samber, Himalayan Thar and Black Bear in the zoo. Along with the zoo and nature park, tourists can also engage in horse riding.

Kufri can be approached from a narrow road leading to Chail by a drive of 30 minutes.

"Not worth" new review

  • 2.50/7
  • Posted 7 days ago
Please don't waste time in Kufri, I wasted around 1 day here. Please check with other option in Shimla. I visited in April and that's not the good time to visit Kufri.

"Great Hill view and Nature Park"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Mar 5, 2015
You need to go there to enjoy the Nature Park with many adventure games in the area. A little bit costly though but the place and location makes it ok to pay. There is even Go Karting at that place. Enjoyed a lot.
