To avoid crane habitat encroachment, a temporary shed equipped with the spotting/viewing scopes shall be made available near the current Visitor Center during the Crane Season from late October until the end of renovation period.

We will appreciate if the concerned agencies/travel agents and tour operators could advice the visitors to avoid visiting the renovation sites for safety reasons. RSPN will be glad to provide any information (including presentations, crane documentary) regarding the Black-necked Cranes in the valley if prior request is made via e-mail or phone.

Inconvenience caused is highly regretted.

Management, RSPN
