A short jeep safari to Bindevasani village
The Bindevasani village is located 14 km. northeast of Chilla, on the Chilla-Rishikesh road. A 15-minute steep climb from the village leads to a Durga temple that also offers a splendid view of the confluence of the Bindedhara and Nildhara rivers.

Best season
The park is open from mid-November to mid-June. Winters are the most pleasant time to visit the park i.e. between November and March, when the temperature ranges between 20-25°C during the day. In summer, temperatures can be as high as 48°C. During winter, making it convenient to visit the park. The park remains closed in the rainy season, when there is an average 750 mm. of rainfall.

Useful Tips
Official vehicles are not available within the park, so if you attempt to come without your private vehicle or hired taxi, it could cause some difficulty.

Do not attempt night driving within the park since this is not only against the rules but is also not safe. Fishing too is prohibited inside the park.

You can contact the Director of the Park for bookings and entry permits. Also, before leaving the Park, make sure you collect a clearance certificate.

Entry into the park is not permitted after dusk. So it is best to move around within the park during the mornings and late afternoons and you never know, but you might be lucky enough to see some splendid animals.
