Though the entry to this forest is restricted, permission can be obtained from the Deputy Conservator of Forest Chandigarh for a close encounter with nature and wildlife. There is also a rest house located within the forest of Kansal that offers a picturesque view of the lush green lawns and colourful flower beds in it's surroundings.
