Jhirna will remain open in June, where you can have Elephant ride which will cost you approx Rs. 1000 per person and and per Jeep Safari approx Rs. 1400/-
Jhirna is the buffer zone, so possibility of spotting a tiger is relatively low, however you will see many langoors (black faced monkeys), and may spot elephants too. It's an abode to over 400 species of birds, so you'll get to see many of them.
Rishikesh would be a 5 hour drive,I would recommend Kumaon which is about an hour or two longer to drive to,but the views here are awesome.You can choose between Nainital,Ramgarh,Mukteshwar,Kausani,Ranikhet.
I agree. Kumaon side of Uttaranchal is more scenic and beautiful.....
For nature lovers - Kumaon Himalayas
For Pilgrimage - Garhwal Himalayas
