Lodge Near The Great Himalayan National ParkStay There
Accommodation within the Great Himalayan National Park is inexpensive, though limited in its scope; about the only place you can stay is one of the dozen-odd forest rest houses scattered across the park. The facilities are minimal, and you'd be well advised to bring your own bedding and food. Rooms here must be reserved well in advance by contacting the Park authorities.

Other options for accommodation lie outside the park's boundaries, but these too are rest houses, and not too different from those within the park. Forest resthouses exist at Aut, Sainj, Sairopa and Shangarh; for all, reservations need to be made well before you arrive.

Venture Into The Great Himalayan
The only means to explore the Great Himalayan National Park is your own two legs. A qualified guide is mandatory for everybody to get well informed about the park ecosystem.
