Admission Rates, Guide Fees, Vehicle rent and the in and out timings would be same as in other zones. However, the visitors can take the gypsy of their choice without roaster but with registered guide.

The result is a landscape has been restored without the over grazing in a remarkable way, proving that very simple measures and alternative livelihoods can have a rapid effect on conservation areas.
