Are the national parks ever closed? You'd just be driving on the road and find yourself inside the national park (occasionally there might be a bamboo pole gate at the entrance).

I too am interested in parks that maybe open during September (we will be in the area 17-30th Sep). By open I mean accessible and with the usual facilities in place for exploring and staying close/in the parks.

Seems everywhere I look opening times are given as October/Novemebr to June.

Thanks for any help

Liberator and Kangarolf

I hear Keoladeo has now had some rain - probably not enough to fill up the ponds though, as they will need to open up the dam for that. Still you should be able to see quite a few of the resident non-migratory species of birds in August. Also various species of deer, other mammals and pythons. I think it's still worth a visit.

You could also try places like Rishikesh, which borders on Rajaji National Park - again an excellent place for bird watching in the hills behind Swarg Ashram on the East bank of the Ganges. A ten minute walk from your hotel and you're in jungle with a good variety of species.
What a long strange trip it's been!
