Abode of the Tiger, the Melghat Tiger Reserve is an integral part of the Satpura-Maikal range, where the land creates a mystifying landscape of high hills and deep valleys. With special permission from forest department, Insearch Outdoors is leading an excursion into this beautiful forest. A walk that is 30 km long, crosses the dense forest and the hills, giving us an opportunity to witness the beautiful flora and fauna in its natural habitat on foot. The trek is relatively difficult and includes a lot of walking and trekking through hilly terrain. As this is a special program, there are limited seats available. We are inviting hardcore trekkers and avid wildlife lovers to enroll in this exclusive program.
