Let’s take a walk in the woods, where the jungle shimmers with varied hues of green!
This is an easy nature walk, not a trek!
It rewards you with sightings of rare birds and maybe even spotted deer. This walks leads you to a spot that has a seasonal shallow stream that is brimming with life in monsoon and dries up in winter months. Weather in the morning is fantastic and it feels great to spend it amidst a forest!
