iii) CHOGORIA: this route is to the eastern side of the mountain and the most beautiful with a long stretch of rain forest, bamboo and alpine vegetational zones before reaching the eye catching Gorges valley and main peaks emerging at the top. Access becomes difficulty during rainy season as roads turn impassible and need camping facilities as we have no manned huts on this route from park gate.

Elephants and buffaloes are common in this route. Camping gears are required apart from highland castle where night can be spent in a cave.
