Just 8 km from Baramul, inside the Mahanadi Wildlife Division Sanctuary, is a place called Kuturi which houses the Habitat Development Centre for facilitating natural breeding of wild animals. This area contains a pond, salt lake, fodder variety Napier grass and an orchard with varieties of indigenous decorative and medicinal plants. There are cottages, watchtowers from where one can watch the free movement and activities of animals during nights.

This place is famous because of the lovely picnic spots under cool mango groves and other shady trees by the side of a hillock. Picturesquely carved out of the big mountains, these places create an impression of a zoological park where animals move in their natural habitat. This relaxing spot surrounded by nature preserves a variety of indigenous plants, both decorative and medicinal.
