Nature in India

The Kharghar Hills – if you’re in searches of a scenic spot…

When we were invited to the Kharghar Hills, I didn’t expect the place to be so splendid. Considering how devotedly people in our neighborhood [url=http://www.indiapalette.com/forums/topic/trees-in-india-and-other-places-banyan-gulmohar-palm-trees/#post-8922]cut down the trees[/url] in fear of a potential damage they can cause to their cars during the rains, I was not sure whether there were any spot of natural beauty left in Navi Mumbai. Fortunately, such places are still there. If you’re in searches of a beautiful scenic spot, the Kharghar Hills can offer you a lot to rest your eyes on: greenery of all the possible shades, waterfalls, panoramic views, flowers and sounds of nature – everything one misses so much in the concrete jungles of a big city.

Breathtaking panoramic views

And when we discovered this one, it was like finding one of those magical flowers from fairy tales, when a king gives his order to find it and bring to the palace, and the flower is hiding from everyone except a chosen person. And this chosen person is you:)

I was surprised to see crabs in the streams, but it seems fresh water crabs are rather common in the Kharghar Hills.

Once again I had a chance to see a [url=http://www.indiapalette.com/forums/topic/flowers-of-your-country/page/4/#post-7443]banana flower[/url] – this one was rather high, but in the Nerul Rock Garden  I could take a better look and actually see little bananas forming between its petals.

So, the journey was pleasant and memorable. Don’t underestimate the Indian sun though, even during the monsoon. Yes, I’m a little sunburnt, so next time sunblocks is a must 🙂
