While getting into the National Park, you cannot help but praise the rich flora and fauna hidden within the tropical hardwood. The National Park preserves butterflies and bird species, along with sloth bears, leopards, and monkeys. The first section of the trek to the famous watershed of Chisapani is fascinating.
