    When did you go there last Rahul as some blogs say vehicles are not allowed in there. Thanks !

  2. Rahul Bagal says:

    Hi Rajesh,

    I visited the place some time in February of 2014 .
    I am not sure if they have changed the rule recently .
    But nothing to worry about it.
    This is a very small sanctuary you can take a walk .

    We also parked vehicle after sometime and took a stroll on trails.
