Dudhwa national park, maintaining her friendship forest corridor with Nepal is located in Lakhimpur district in Uttar Pradesh. Nearest town (10 km), Palia is waiting for you with enough facilities. Gauri Fanta, last location of India is located at the end of Dudhwa road and on the other side of the border Dhangadi town is ready to welcome you with a warm and delightful Nepali welcome.
• How to reach there:
Frankly speaking nearest railway station is not so near. Lucknow railway station (LJN, LKO), 240 km away from Dudhwa, is maintaining its second position after Shahjehanpur railway station (SPN) which is just 110 km away from Dudhwa. But if you are low budget traveler, no need to worry, Buses services of UP will never let you down.

• Accommodation, food and Jungle safari:
“Jungle is not your home. Kindly don’t try to make it a dustbin”
I always prefer to book accommodation after visit rather than pre-booking. Tigerhino resorts, Tiger’s den, The Jungle Lore etc are always ready to pay their service with standard charges. But in my opinion, try forest guest houses and accommodation at first. After Dudhwa main gate you will find many accommodations including dormitory rooms with various range and comfort. If you want pre-booking then go through Dudhwa NP official website and other mentioned resort's websites.
Canteen is available for food in Dudhwa accommodation campus and every resort have their own kitchen to increase your saliva in your mouth.
