The season to celebrate without any reason has arrived……the Monsoon has begun………like a magic band it has swept & transformed the forest with wild flowers, creepers and climbers ……… all the heat and lethargy of the previous months are washed away by this beautiful downpour………And the best way to experience the beauty of the monsoon is…….on foot, walking around in the forest……..we invite you all to join us for free Tree Appreciation Walk at Silonda Trail in SGNP, Mumbai…….. The 95thth Tree Appreciation Walk is on Sunday 24TH June2018

1. Silonda Trail is a restricted area and we have taken permission to conduct the walk there. It is about 1 km inside the park from the main gate.
2. Please register with us by 20th June by Email to both of us as we have to inform the forest officer 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 Silonda, please make your own arrangements to reach there which is just 1 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 Silonda. Also the queue for tickets will be very long so do come early.

a) Please wear dull cloths only……preferably dark green, brown, black.
