Sleeping gem in mountains

Not very big spread, can be covered in 3 to 4 hours easily or may be another hours with some picnic put in. It has few wild life to look around and it has a specific Monkey that was discovered here only and no where else. Sepahijala can be a break point between other tourist points in case need to rest for some time while onward or return journey. A lake within the sanctuary is worthwhile for a afternoon laid back boating with a dear one.

The place you would fall in love with

You would be fascinated with the animals and would probably start following their calls. I would bet you would record the monkey call as your ringtone. You would feel like hugging the baby bear at your own risk and the older one, you would follow the dance steps. The deers are real dear ones and birds.
