HolidayIQ Reviewer Babulal sharma shares, “There are a lot of monkeys but I must say they are too friendly. I went with my family. Safari was an awesome experience. Spotting a tiger was a thrilling moment. We took a lot photos; it was full of fun. It is one of the most famous places to visit among foreigners also. I would like to ask everyone to visit this place. I was thinking that it is not a good place to visit but I was absolutely wrong. It is a great fort situated in Sawai Madhopur. Fort has seven gates to enter into the temple of Sree Ganesh.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Saurav Sinha Choudhury shares, “It is a nice sightseeing place. It is a nice place to visit for sightseeing, of course. Don't get fooled by the name Periyar Tiger Reserve – you might not get to see a tiger here. But, yes, the boat ride with vast stretches of water with water birds all over is a sight to capture in one's lenses. And, yes, one can see the different kinds of deer and that is a good adventure. And make sure you book your boat ride beforehand so that you avoid disappointments at the last moment. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Yogesh Dhandharia says, “We selected Gir because we wanted to face the wild out of their cages and majorly wanted to face the tiger. We had selected the month of June as the climate in spite of being hot was still favourable to watch wildlife in their natural habitat. We wanted to visit the first session in the morning as sighting tigers in the morning is most likely but due to unfavourable reasons, we had to take the evening session which starts at 3:00 PM. We got the tickets and were lead to our vehicle which was an open Jeep. The expectation of seeing a tiger sent cold chills down our spine. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aruna Suryanarayana shares, “This place is really very nice to visit during the whole year. The drive between Hunsur and Kutta is around 35 km. During rain and winter, you can see lush green jungles with elephants, peacocks and deer as common sightings with Hanuman langurs also. Many of them sight wild cats every now and then. I had been on this route thrice and was really lucky to have the big cat sighting twice. Once was a just miss situation of a leopard and second was just a month back (28th of Feb 2014) - had a sighting of a tiger. My heart beat went high when I saw the majestic animal crossing the road in the deep jungle just after the forest guest house near to "moorkal village" in the middle of the jungle. Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rajendra Makharia adds, “We had barely entered the park in our Gypsy when our guide hushed us and stopped the vehicle. Lo and behold, right in front of our eyes was one of the largest and finest of majestic beasts, Endu, the biggest male tiger in the sanctuary. He was sauntering majestically barely ten to fifteen yards from us. I scrambled for my camera and with fumbling fingers managed to fire off few frames as he was walking towards a nullah. This was my first and last sight of him - I had never seen a tiger this size in my life. He was ten years old and weighed over 350 kg. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sushant Hublikar adds, “The safari was great. The lions and tigers were well-fed and unlike in the other safaris I have seen - they looked as if they were in a real jungle. A tiger was walking towards our vehicle and just looking at the walk was eye-catching - majestic and elegant! The male lion with its golden mane and fiery eyes looked quite like the King of the Jungle. The park has a zoo as well with a variety of animals. There is a lot of greenery, kids play area. Overall, it is very well-maintained and a good time-pass. It is a good location for photos as well.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer arindam saha says, “This is worth a day trip. We had taken an elephant ride in the morning starting at 7.30 am and a Jeep safari starting at 10 am in the morning. It was a nice experience. We had booked everything from the hotel. We had seen many animals except tiger there. You can feel the tranquillity of nature there. Since we did not have much time, we couldn't take the evening jeep safari which would be better. Overall, it was a nice day out. Jeep safari costs Rs. 2000 for the whole jeep of 1. 5 hours and elephant safari costs Rs. 900 per head for one hour approximately. Camera charges are extra. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Boudhayan Ghosh says, “2. Buxaduar- A tough trek up the forest hill. It is almost impossible to explain the abundance of Mother Nature; the sound of forests; the sound of dried leaves falling off the trees; the wind passing through the trees; and more importantly, the jhijhi poka sound that sounds like a constant ringing bell in temple miles away. It is such a unique experience. The experience of climbing up the hill through the forests is richer than the ruins of Buxa Fort. 3. Buxa Tiger Reserve: This place has nothing to boast about. You may not see much wildlife except stray and wild dogs. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sanjoy Das shares, “A breathtaking sight, Barehipani is India's second highest waterfall. Its roar can be heard many miles away. The forest lodge situated on the opposite bank is a wonderful place for wildlife spotting. There are elephants, tiger, gaur, deer and a great variety of bird life. The people are very good and simple and really take care of you. The packed lunch from Tosali is an added luxury.” Read Full Review
