Moody monsoon has arrived and it’s in good humor, generously filling up the empty aquifers……bringing with it the season to celebrate without any reason ……like a magic band it has swept & transformed the landscape from a seemingly lifeless, parched brown of summer to a verdant green ……… all the heat and lethargy of the previous months are washed away by this beautiful and delicious downpour………And the best way to experience the beauty of the monsoon is…….on foot, walking around in the forest……hearing the noises of being born by pushing the earth aside..….seeing never seen colors and shapes…..we invite you all to join us for free Tree Appreciation Walk at Silonda Trail in SGNP, Mumbai…….. Forest floor is full of its magic……..Gulvel, Ghotvel, Norvel, Kantola, Anantmol, all are clamoring to climb up on the trees of Shisham, Chironji, Haldu, Kusum, and many more.
