A privately owned nature reserve, Mountain Sanctuary Park is known for its clear mountain pools and rock formations. The preserve offers ample activity options, ranging from hiking to swimming in the natural pools. Ancient natural boulder sculptures attract both visitors and native animal species; and leafy overhead canopies provide shade as you trek through the mountains. The park also offers a chance to taste traditional spiced sausages and the barbeque of the region in its restaurant. Wear appropriate shoes, and carry a bottle of water and sunscreen.

  • The area is stunning and the hiking trails are full of hidden treasures. Enjoying nature here is truly rewarding. The trails could however be better marked, and it is easy to get lost. The cabins are very poorly built with single-layer plywood which insulates neither heat nor noise. The staff are friendly and there is an active guard patrol that regularly passes by at night (indicating they have taken proactive measures since the incidents over New Year).
  • Went mountain biking here on their very technical route. Chilled afterwards at the pool. Good place for a day break away. Will visit again. Didn't see much game but very beautiful nature spot
