Green Code of Conduct

Piece of Advice

The valley becomes quite windy in the late afternoon, so you may want to finish your walk by around 3pm. Although the valley is beautiful throughout the year we do not recommend walking in the height of the monsoon season unless you are a serious flower lover or birdwatcher.

Green Code of Conduct

  • Visit the Black-necked Crane Information Centre before you explore the valley.
  • Stay on the trails, do not walk wherever you desire.
  • Do not tamper or collect flowers and plants.
  • Dispose your garbage at a proper place and carry back all non-biodegradable wastes for recycling/reuse or to a safe disposable site.
  • Do not use camera with flash; it will disturbe the cranes and other wildlife.
  • Wear dull-colored clothes when near the crane roost. Bright clothes will alarm the cranes.
  • Be as quite as possible when near the crane roost. Also refrain from using vehicle horns in the valley.
  • Use only designated campsite (consult RSPN/DoF for a proper campsite).
  • Avoid using firewood. Do not leave fire unattended.
  • Respect the cultural heritage and customs of the area.
