Borivali National Park, now known as Sanjay Gandhi National Park is situated at about 42 Kms north of Mumbai. Virgin forests spread over 104 sq kms. are the home for various varieties of birds and is a bird watcher paradise. It is also the place where the Kanhari caves carved by Buddhist monks exist. Notified in 1974, it offers a pleasant change from the usual sights and attractions of the big city.

 

It is hence common to see the park teeming with school picnics, college picnics and other organized excursions. The undulating green lands of the Borivili National Park are just the kind of surroundings to which one would love to retreat for some moments of quiet introspection or meditation. The great panoramic views of hills, valleys, lakes and open expanses can actually have a therapeutic effect on mind, body and soul. Rising from an elevation less than about 30 Mts. above mean sea level, the terrain park culminates in a series of peaks dispersed throughout the park - the highest, near the Kanheri Caves, being 468 Mts.

 

The Sanjay Gandhi National Park is unique because it can be visited all round the year. In the hot, dry summer months the jungle is a riot of colour as Golmohar known as �The flame of the forest and the flowering silk cotton give the otherwise harsh brown forest a crimson blush. Borivali in the rains has a charm of its own. The entire forest is a carpet of green and streams, swollen with rainwater tumble and meander down the slopes.

 

The rains automatically draw trekkers, bird watchers and nature lovers of all ages to this verdant paradise. Visitors to Mumbai are rather surprised to see that there are 104 sq kms. of virgin forest within its borders, just waiting to be explored. The recreational area of this park includes The Kanheri Caves, The Tulsi and Vihar lakes, The Lion Safari, The Deer Park, The samadhi of Mahatma Gandhi and gardens.

Tasneem at Mumbai and Yogesh at Cochin are still remembered by us for their meticulous care and planning. Our visit to Mannarsala Nagaraja Temple also remains ever green in our minds. We really cherished each and every moment we were entertained by T.P We will definitely not only recommend Tasneem and T.P to our friends and relatives but also make the best use of their services anytime we require in future. Thanks a lot Mrs Tasneem and thanks to you also Yogesh... ...more

    This was my first experience with Pretty Planet Tours. Trip was wonderfully organized by Mr. Rajeev and Ms. Riny Agarwal. Staying arrangements at all locations were well planned. We would like to inform you that we enjoyed the trip of HIMACHAL for 10 days in comfortable manner within our budget. We have travelled from Mumbai to Chandīgarh, Shimla, Kullu-Manali, Dalhousie, and Dharamshala. Stay and food was good. We had a very good driver who could guide us sightseeing and was friendly too. Overall, our experience with Pretty Planet Tours was fabulous and we wish them good luck for their excellent work. ...more

    First of all I want to thank you for making superb tour arrangement on a very short notice. The vehicle through which I have travelled Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Jodhpur and back was always so neat and clean. Driver also was not in any hurry to reach next destination. Mr. Sumit who was our driver on tour has loads of information about the places which we were visited. After finishing our day visits he always keeps planning for next day and keeps suggesting where and what to eat. We had 5 days in hand and only 2 destinations to cover; so we never rushed up. Accommodations provided by you were superb. Specially the Kuchaman Haveli at Jodhpur. This is the place where you can feel that you are living in the era of Maharajas. Thank you once again for making this trip so special and memorable. We will look forward to go for more destinations with you. Warm Regards Swapnil, Vidula & Saloni Paranjape- Mumbai ...more
