Eco-Tourism

Ecotourism

BRT Tiger Reserve is a much sought after destination mainly for the breath taking views of nature from the hills, in fact the drive along the main roads of the Tiger Reserve is one full of encounters with wild animals.
 

Forest Department has designated a small area for eco-tourism, the tourism zone is located around K-Gudi and morning and evening safaris are conducted daily. Though BRT Tiger Reserve is a highly preferred destination by the eco-tourist, little accommodation and less intensive safaris make the destination only amenable to the serious eco-tourists, with fewer numbers the nature is much more pristine and the wilderness much more encompassing. Above all the thrill of a possible sighting of the Tiger around the corner makes the safari drives much more exciting.
 

How can I make a reservation if I have to stay at B.R.Hills?
There are two forest rest houses which can be reserved in advance. One is at K.Gudi, which can accommodate 6 people and the other is at BR Hills which can accommodate 4 people.
