Sanjay Gandhi National Park



One of the largest protected areas in the state can be found within one of the busiest cities in India and forms 20% of Mumbai’s geographical area. Sanjay Gandhi National Park is home to 274 bird species, 170 butterfly species, and 35 mammal species. The easy access to nature attracts around 2 million visitors each year, making it one of the most visited national parks in the country.

What makes the park so popular is the immediate connection that you can feel with nature once you enter as it takes you away from the city noises to the chirping of birds. You’re also likely to come across monkeys and deers as they freely roam around. There is a lot to experience here and multiple visits are recommended if you want to explore everything that the park has to offer - from scaling the rocks to visit the Kanheri Caves to riding the Van Rani toy train to paddle boating at the lake. The place is a special treat for birdwatchers as there are plenty of opportunities to spot diverse species, especially on the Bamboo Hut, Kanheri, and Nagala Block Trails. The national park is open all year round and there’s a unique charm to be experienced in each season, so don’t hesitate to visit if you are in the area.
