To sensitize the citizens about the flora and fauna of Chandigarh, department conducts trekking in Sukhna Wildlife Sanctuary every month except June to September. Anyone can register himself/herself for the trekking. Interested participants can register themselves by submitting the registration form online on this official website. Recently department had developed new trekking route to conduct monthly trekking so that participants can enjoy the Mother Nature without disturbing the wildlife.

There are 2 entry gates to Sukhna WLS. They are Kansal Gate and Nepli Gate. The route to Kansal gate is via village Khuda Alisher or through village Kaimbwala of U.T. Chandigarh, at a distance of 3 Km from Chandigarh, either way. The route to Nepli gate is via village Suketri of Haryana which is at a distance of about 3 Km from Chandigarh. The sanctuary has a road network inside. It is also possible to enter from one gate and come out from the other through an eight km nature trail after completing the visit to the sanctuary, but not by driving.

Traditional watchtowers and signages camouflaged in forests are constructed along the nature trails, which add beauty to the trails. A breath-taking view of Shivalik hills is afforded from the watchtowers. These watchtowers also help in detecting/spotting forest fire, illegal felling and poaching. There are presently 12 watch towers situated in both the ranges.
