Marco Polo's troubleshooting guide

We are 10 senior-citizen couples considering a holiday in the Chilla range near Haridwar in March 2017. Could you suggest some nice accommodation in the area, from where we can go on a safari and get some peace and rest?

Simple: book the log huts at GMVN’s Chilla Resort, located outside Rajaji National Park near Haridwar. The cottages are new, clean and set in a quiet riverside area (where some people complain of having little to do other than relax!). Accommodation here costs from ₹4,500 (gmvn.gov.in). There is also a forest rest house in Chilla; enquire at the Park Director’s office in Dehradun (0135-2621669). Forest safaris (6-9am and 3-6pm) can be booked at the park’s Chilla gate.
