Gandhari – Nature Trail

Gandhari is a small patch of grass land situated on the banks of Ulhas River at the outskirts of Kalyan. Some part of it consists of dense forest as well. This area is rich in a variety of flora and fauna, a paradise for nature enthusiasts. The growing Kalyan city is a threat to the ecosystem of this area. During our four hours stay we sighted many birds – Openbill Storks, Bee Eaters, Cukoos, Short Toed Snake Eagle, Plovers, Oriental Honey Buzzards, Babblers etc. This area is home to varieties of butterflies also.

On the central railway take Mumbai- Karjat local and get down at Kalyan Junction. A rikshaw from Kalyan railway station can take you there in 15 minutes. There are share rikshaws available from lal chowk which will cost Rs. 40/- per head.
