This green belt supports an enormous variety of Himalayan flora and fauna. There are many walking trails through the surrounding jungle. You can choose your own trail. One of the popular walks is from the Kilbury forest rest house to Pangot. You can go through the forest or along the main road, which rarely sees vehicles pass by.
