With a view to provide necessary livelihood to local population, most resorts have decided to keep only 2 Gypsys of their own. Additional gypsys are called from the village. Each Gypsy is allowed to carry 6 adults but we recommend that ideally only 4 persons are comfortable in a gypsy.

Forest Entry

  1. First choice for most guests is the ‘TURIA GATE’ because this is just 2 km from ‘Tathastu’. It is advisable to book your forest entry as early as possible because the limited entries are quickly taken.

Direct booking from TURIA Gate can be done via this link:

  1. The ‘KHURSAPAR GATE’ is approximately 10 km from ‘Tathastu’. It is located on the Maharasthra side of the Reserve.

Direct booking from KHURSAPAR Gate can be done via this link:

  1. The second choice is the ‘SILLARI GATE’ on the Maharashtra side of Pench National Park. This is approx. 40 km from ‘Tathastu’ but is as promising regarding sightings as MP side. Extra travelling time of 45 minutes each way is the only issue for some…. While for some others it is actually additional fun.

Direct booking from SILLARI Gate can be done via this link:

    1. The third option is the ‘RUKKHAD AREA’ which is approx. 32 km from ‘Tathastu’. This is a comparatively new area but extremely beautiful and exciting. Advance booking is not required as spot bookings are normally easily available from Rukkhad Gate.
