As there is a lack of good hotels and lodges in the area tourists mainly tend to visit the forest and return the very day. To offer home stay to tourists  residents of nearby villages have been trained by the area’s tourism authority.

The entrance fee  (to enter the Forest) for domestic tourists is Rs. 500/- and for foreigners is Rs. 1,000/-.
