A pleasant surprise away from Mumbai's concrete jungle
Let us visit one of the stress-free and closet trekking spot, which offers an excellent opportunity to experience a different day for the season.
Tungareshwar Wild Life Sanctuary is a part of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park but lies in the mainland. The ecosystem is more deciduous forests with some evergreen patches and forms a corridor for the animals between SGNP and Tansa Wildlife Sanctuary.
The Sanctuary is crowded and polluted because of the pilgrimages traffic to the Tungareshwar temple inside. But most of the parts of this forest are left untouched by these people.
Tungareshwar is at an altitude of about 2177 feet, one of the mountain plateaus in Vasai. The starting point is the highway junction, which is about a kilometer from the base at the base there is a forest check post from this point onward starts the actual trail of Tungareshwar. After about a 3 km hike and walking through two streams (Only in monsoon) you reach the temple...
Visitors frequent the Sanctuary and by littering, they cause hazards for the fauna even the areas in the park not frequented are highly affected.
SECR, we consider ourselves part of nature and we owe a lot to our mother nature So instead of just going for trek and increasing our carbon footprint, we will be collecting plastics and other non-biodegradable waste as a part of our cleanliness drive.
We will try create awareness about the problems dangers we would have to face if pollution and littering is not stopped.
We also request the locals/Pilgrims/Visitors to take care and not to throw rubbish especially plastic s on roads but to collect them and dispose it in proper place. Plastic thrown around is eaten by animals harming them and also pollutes the local environment
The registration fees is Rs. 50 (exclude everything)
