The Moody Monsoon has been throwing its weight all around, making life difficult for some but in SGNP it has created a land of plentiful for its rightful Inhabitants……….every inch of land is covered with herbs like Til (Sesame orientale), Takla (Cassia tora), Hill Turmeric (Cucurma pseuomontana), Wild Mong (Vigna radiata), Undhaphul (Trichodesma indicum) and many more. Almost every tree has some climbers on them, such as Nolvel (Dioscoria bulbifera), Dioscoria pentaphylla, Dioscoria hispida, Shindoli (Holostemma annulare), Jyotismati, Climbing Fern (Lygodium flexuosum)……….. Giant Wood Spiders, Signature Spiders, weaving larger& larger webs……fluttering butterflies chasing each other………buzzing bees collecting pollens from wild flowers………there is a sensational buzz in Malad Trail of National Park……….We invite you all to join us for a Tree Appreciation Walk in Malad Trail, SGNP, on 8th Sep,13. 

The 41thth walk is on Sunday 8th Sep, 2013

Also note we have to pay Rs 50 to forest department for entering the trail and Rs 10 for the forest guide. Please  pay the said money to your group leader and kindly bring exact change so we do not waste time] 

Most Important:

1. Malad Trail is a restricted area and we have taken permission to conduct the walk there. It is about 3 km inside the park from the main gate.  

2. Please register with us by 5th Sep,13 as we have to inform the forest office in advance. This time we are restricting the number to 35 participants only. 

3. Its not possible for us to arrange for the vehicle from gate to Malad Trail, please make your own arrangements to reach there which is just 3 km from the main gate. Please  do car pooling…do little net working.  

Very Important : Please Don’t be late, specially those who are coming for the 1st time for the trail in the park & not familiar with the area….there will be other groups also for their walks and it will be very difficult to locate us once we leave for Malad Trail. Also the que for tickets will be very long so do come early.
