Wild Agumbe Rainforest exploration
This October we return to the ‘Heart of the rainforest’ once again however in the misty and damp weather time. To showcase India's rich biodiversity we enter into the King Cobra's trail right into the heart of Western Ghats - The Agumbe rainforest.
Usually Indian wildlife is identified by powerful species like the Tigers and the Elephants, but on this trip we promise to take you though this incredible journey showing you the lesser known yet very important parts of the rainforest ecosystem that supports many vulnerable and protected wildlife species, one of them holds the title of another King of the jungle - Indian King Cobra.
Agumbe is a very small village located in Shimoga district of Karnataka. It is also known as the "Cherrapunji" of the South. Being a part of dense rainforest it has limited visitors, the village covers an area of 3 sq km and is along periphery of Someshwara Wildlife Sanctuary and the Kudremukh National Park.
You will be guided by an expert naturalist/ conservationist. The central idea of this trip is to absorb the richness of the bio-diversity and thus a good DSLR is highly recommended to record some of the unbelievable moments in Nature. Jungle tracking to spot mammals (lion tailed macaque, sambar deer) and birds (malabar trogon);
We will be exploring various animal habitats like grasslands to dense forests in complete silence and natural beauty.
It is highly recommended that you carry a DSLR and safely explore the fragile rainforest environment.
