Mumbai’s Sanjay Gandhi National Park never seems to disappoint and today, we've got one more reason to love the place! Part of it which ends close to Yeoor Hills in Thane, is where you can spot the tiny colourful fluttering creatures. The butterfly park is situated within the National Park and is a 'must visit'. Borivali National Park, now known as the Sanjay Gandhi National Park is surrounded by India’s most populous city but makes for a dream destination for any animal lover and photographer.
Now you can spot butterflies at Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Yeoor Hills in Thane and trust us, it looks like a garden within a garden. The Butterfly Garden is a project that contains 5 gardens within one huge garden. The first garden is a nursery of beautiful plants and shrubs, second and third are the bamboo gardens, the fourth is a oneness garden and the fifth, which is relatively new, is the butterfly garden. To help you to enjoy your hobby of butterflying, even more, a pocket guide to the butterflies of Sanjay Gandhi National Park is also available which not only gives a colourful and pictorial description of the butterflies but also information about how to identify them.
From the common crow butterfly to the Common Tiger Butterfly, Blue Tiger, Grey Pansy or Gray Pansy, The Common Jezebel, The Dark-branded Bushbrown, The Common Emigrant, The Red Pierrot, The Tailed Jay, The Great Orange-tip, The Peacock Pansy and The Gaudy Baron, you will spot several species of butterflies! So, we suggest this weekend, here's where you need to head to!
