The Indian python and viper, along with the king cobra can also be spotted in the park. If you are looking to explore the park more conveniently, hire a jeep from Ramnagar. Get the services of a tour guide, who is adept at recognizing warning notes from other animals and knowing the habits of animals. You must merge as much as you can with the natural surroundings. This would include wearing earthy tones, avoiding strong perfumes, keeping noise to the minimum and disposing trash properly. Remember to carry your binoculars for that closer look!
Ramnagar: Located on the outskirts of the park, this little market town is used as the base for exploring the reserve. It also forms an excellent base camp for fishing in the Kosi, Ramganga, Madal and Kothri rivers. You can hire a fishing rod from the locals or get it arranged from the resorts.Airfare/train fare
