What's so special:You can head to SGNP just before the Monsoons to watch the beauty of Fireflies, this goes on for a couple of weeks. You can only see this in dense areas at the National Park and can stay the night there if you wish. This is also visible in Lonavala Rajmachi 2 hours drive from Mumbai.
THIS WAS OUR JOURNEY ON THE TREK FROM START TO FINISH. IF THE WILD IN UR CITY EXCITED YOU, THIS IS A MUST DO TREK.
Sanjay Gandhi National Park: Squeezed between Mumbai and Thane is the beautiful Sanjay Gandhi National Park. This place makes up for one of beautiful picnic spots near Mumbai. It is quite unbelievable that within 90 minutes from the brimming city, a land abundant of flora and fauna can be present. Surrounded by tropical forest cover of the northern hills, this region is a welcome change for Mumbaikars. With butterflies teeming in the gardens and deer crossing the roads, the park is a great place to spend a day, especially if you have your child along with you.Timing: The park opens up at 7.30 am and closes at 5.30 pm. There are special early morning walks organised every year, for which, passes need to be bought.
NAGLA BLOCKThe northern chunk of Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai is a place frequented by a select few since this part of the conserved land remains in unawares and away from the usual din. Tucked by the mangrove patch of Vasai creek, Nagla Block is a 16 square kilometer boscage that houses a large variety of flora and fauna, offering an absolute visual treat.
