Vansda National Park-Wildlife Exploration at Best

Vansda National park is a conserved wildlife park spanning over an area of about 24 sq kilometers, snuggled up in the Sahyadri ranges. It got its name as Vansda because it was once privately owned by the Maharaja of Vansda. It was established as a National Park in 1979 and is widely known for no felling of trees since 1952. Not a single tree has been cut since then. Owing to this, in some places, the canopies are so thick that sunlight does not pass through.

A botanist's and wildlife enthusiast's paradise, the place is home to over hundreds of different and unique varieties of flora and fauna. River Ambika flows along its north-eastern boundary, and a major part of the park falls under the catchment area. During monsoon, it gets heavy rainfall over 2000 mm which fosters dense growth. Touching Dang forests on the east and Valsad forests in the south, it forms a continuous track interspersed by numerous streams. It is an ideal scenic getaway forming an important part of your itinerary whenever you happen to visit Gujarat and is Open Park.
