Ultimate peak

It is little tough to go to kufari but you will be mesmerized on reaching there. The whole day can be passed like a single small moment. You can participate here in many type of adventure activities which will be available after payment of fee. Above ... There are restaurants too where you may enjoy cold coffee as well as different flavors if icecreame.

Best park to visit

The park is having 40 rs entry fees for Indian citizen and it's totally worth it. 4 leopards and they are active. They roam in their wide cages and are in pairs.3 wild bears and many more dears and rest of the common species. Best part is park is huge and animals are very active. Not like the other parks where animals just sleep and sleep.Public are just dumb they keep on teasing leopards and they roar back towards them and they enjoy it the most.

Worst and waste of time

Waste of time and money to visit this place as you can't see any animal there. Only Goral, leopard and few birds you can see but no other option. Worst experience in the zoo. It's better to sit and relax in the Hotel rather than visiting this park. Even you will not see any executive post your ticket collection from the reception inside the zoo.

Real bad, couple of deers and one leopard

Really a waste of time.. It is become a commercial place nothing like what the name suggests.. This place is only there as name sake to satisfy some government officials not for animal lovers.. So avoid this place and any place where the guide takes you.. It is damn crowded.

A good place to visit

There is lot of rush at Kufri. Horse ride is beautiful and it is fun. Nature park is nice and beautiful. You can see in Kufri, the Himalayan ranges and China border. Also one can view the richest village of Himachal Pradesh. Also one see Nag Mandir, Kali temple and Apple orchard. Kufri is quite cold and you can see snow.

A different kind of Zoo

Normally zoos are like based on plane grounds, but this one is like made on sloppy hills. You can see different himalayan animals like Leopard, Bear etc.

Looks beautiful

My children was very happy after seeing the park. My wife was so happy and enjoyed alot there. You will never find that attraction nowhere. It was awesome experience to travel and enjoy like that. We had a too many clicks there but my memory card was in repair I missed that photos but they were sweet memories. I hope every one must visit atleast once in their lifetime and have a lot of fun and enjoyment.

It's thrilling walking through

Went to this park with my family. Didn't like it much, it's not even that big. It would hardly be about 1 km walk inside the nature park. Only thing that I liked is walking up and down hill like within a hilly jungle. It's thrilling walking through it.
