PHANSAD – The Grassland Shelter

1 NIGHTS/2 DAYS

 

About the tour:

Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary is a wildlife refuge in the Murud and Roha talukas of Raigad district, Maharashtra state, India. It was created in 1986 to preserve some of the coastal woodland ecosystem of the Western Ghats and consists of 6979 hectares of forest, grasslands and wetlands. The area was once part of the hunting reserves of the princely state of Murud-Janjira.

 

Another interesting destination is the Phansad Wildlife Sanctuary which offers a perfect escape from the pressures of urban living. This is one place where the grasslands and wetlands come together and provide shelter for a wide range of floral and faunal species.
