In words of Dr. N.C. Jain, Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife), “It is easy trek with slight hike and people from all age classes can join. However, people with difficulty in walking may take necessary stick etc. Walking or trekking shoes are recommended. Lunch shall be packed and carried by the participant himself.”

The Entry fee has been kept very nominal (Rs. 20 per person, and Rs. 4 for students, on production of an ID) by the forest department to ensure more and more participation in the programme. The orientation and necessary information about the eco-trekking programme will begin at 9:30 A.M. at Kamlighat, which is on Udaipur – Ajmer N.H.8, at about 130 km, along with welcome tea and light snacks. Therefore, interested people must reach Kamlighat sharply by 9:30.
