A Morning With Nature
Shilonda trail on Sunday at the Sanjay Gandhi National Park
With the monsoon in full force, join BNHS for a morning at Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP). See the first blossoms of wildflowers like Wild Turmeric which last only a few days after they bloom. One can also see myriad small life forms during this time, and large mammals like Spotted Deer and Sambar. The trail leads through fine forest dominated by bamboo and ends at the first stream.
