Kempty fall : This place is on the top but don’t set high expectations from the Kempty fall. You can enjoy the journey to the Kempty Fall. Fall is beautiful, but there are lots of shops on the top of water which just block the beautiful view. This is 12-15 km far from the Mall Road, you can get the taxi to reach here. There are shops to eat and do shopping.

Jungle safari : We went for the Sitabani wildlife reserve. This is the zone where you can spot less animals. Yes you heard right , if you want to spot tiger then don't go for it book government zone which can be booked 1 and half month prior. We enjoyed a lot in our safari. Spotted some dear, peacock, elephant but not lucky enough to spot the tiger. But no problem we are completely satisfied with our trip as we enjoyed a lot and next time will go for the other zone and expect to spot tiger.
