Kids will adore a Tungareshwar route in Vasai

Tungareshwar Borivali National Park
Between Virar and Vasai is a unenlightened plateau, named Tungareshwar. The approach to this tabletop mountain is around a timberland segment that is now a indifferent sanctuary. My weekend scrutiny for an outside activity with a kids led me to Tungareshwar. A far-flung leg of a Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) connected to any other around a corridor, Tungareshwar is opposite from SGNP in that it has a incomparable suit of evergreen trees.

At 6.30 am we strech Dadar TT to accommodate a BNHS organisation that was to take us by a guided debate by Tungareshwar. It takes roughly an hour from Borivali around a Bombay-Ahmedabad Highway to strech Tungareshwar. As are all BNHS groups, a garland travelling for a Tungareshwar track is a churned one. However, this time, a kids concomitant with their relatives are all 9 years and above; they’re sporting movement rigging and are armed with binoculars and formidable cameras.

The organisation attempts to mark and constraint a bird

Tungareshwar takes me by surprise. The track is far-reaching and beaten. we learn because later: a Shiv church here is famous, as is an ashram nearby a plateau top, so creation it a busy track for people around vehicles. we also learn after that there is an different track around Virar, that is ascending and prolonged (12 km contra 7 km around Vasai).

The Tungareshwar trail

The object is harsh, and a highway is dusty. It is rise summer now, and a trees contrariety any other — a vast series of deciduous trees are bare-branched, while splendid immature leaves of a evergreens glitter in a sun. As we travel a frequented route we notice a butterflies, inspect flower-decked trees, mark birds, and gawk during insect habitats.

We mark a Black Naped Monarch — a little blue-coloured bird, a Oriental Honey Buzzard swirling in a sky in hunt for a prey, Riverine Tern and a Greater Coucal among birds. We steer a Ghost tree, a Sand Paper tree, a teak tree, a few orchid-bearing trees, and more. We mark butterflies of all kinds (Leopard butterfly, a Blue Pansy and a Common Crow) as good as bees (Carpenter Bee) and ants.

The track is renouned with trekkers, generally in a monsoon. The dry riverbeds that run roughly together to a trail, are full of rocks and boulders and bent-over trees. On a sides we mark dusty trails left by waterfalls that will come alive with a rains. we can usually suppose how pleasing it will be when it rains.
