The sanctuary offers a host of trekking options to know the wild. There is a two-night and three-day trek option in which travellers can explore the woods and visit some pre-historic sites known for cave paintings and dolmenoids. Another interesting option is the trek to Vysiapara which includes an overnight stay in a thatched hut atop a scenic hill. Visit to tribal settlements is part of both the options. For those who are on a short holidaying, a one-day trek is offered which includes bird watching.    

The treks are organized by the Department of Forests and Wildlife in association with Eco-development committees formed by tribal communities. It is strongly recommended to contact the Eco-development Committee or Sanctuary authorities to plan the options well in advance.
