We visited this place specially tiger but was told that mostly seen often from summer season. So not found tiger in place. But enjoy boating for scenic view. Best time to see tiger is in summer seasons.

Nice place to visit. You can visit it through boat, which will cost u 225 Rs per person for 2 hour. Overall it was good. I was able to see elephant, deer, bison and many different kind of birds.

They offer great nature walk. However, you have to purchase ticket from the city information center. Try to book in advance as they have limited timings. Guide accompanies us and they are good people.
