Fossil remains of this sanctuary!

Wildlife sanctuary encompasses both flora and fauna. Although you can get to see flora here (that too stretches of dense jungles;you should be a real botanist to have interest in that, otherwise, you are bound to get bored), we saw 2 dogs as the sole representative of the wildlife there. And of course, no crocodiles (we perhaps have to provide a bait to call their attention). Hopefully the ticket charged were not too high for us. But then a foreigner wouldn't have been lucky enough to claim that.A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY, TIME AND ENERGY... This wild life sanctuary should better be called a picnic spot or couple's paradise,... Not EVER A WILDLIFE SANCTUARY.

It's more of a dead sanctuary

This is a very calm and quiet place. You will have peace of mind here. Nothing to see much here. One big pond with two three crocodile inside. Some other points like valley view point are nice to see. Not one wild animal was seen. It's more of a dead sanctuary.

No creatures in the santuary

The guard of the Wildlife Sanctuary at the entry gate told me that it is an open sanctuary, you can luckily find deers and bears and crocodile for sure but unfortunately I couldn't find any single creature except for few birds in whole sanctuary.

I am not that much of a bird watcher, but they say you can find variety of birds

You will find monkeys, and that's about it. Traver's tank will offer crocodiles. Sometimes, a bear will show up, if you are lucky enough. I am not that much of a bird watcher, but they say you can find variety of birds.

Such a nice place!

This is a great place to visit. But the place becomes even more beautiful during rainy season. There are some beautiful spots where you can go and it can make you happy.

Looks awesome during rainy season

Good place to visit, but do not alone. Take someone along to enjoy the place. It must be a group visit. It looks very attractive in Monsoon (Rainy Season).
