Nature trails of the season

Winter has well set in and Dapoli being hill station we experience chilled days during this season. This year’s cold wave made the mercury fall well below 100C.

दापोलीत थंडीची लाट लोकांना चांगल्यापैकी गारठवू लागली आहे.

Many tourists visited Dapoli during year end holidays. I got opportunity to conduct nature trail for various groups during this period. These were at various locations as well. Positive response from trail participants was very encouraging.

दर वर्षी प्रमाणे यंदाही नवीन वर्षाच्या निमित्ताने भरपूर पर्यटकांनी दापोली व परिसरातील गावांना सुट्टी साठी पसंती दिली. मला ह्या दिवसांमध्ये वेगवेगळ्या ठिकाणाहून आलेल्या पर्यटकांसाठी निसर्ग भ्रमण कार्यक्रम घेण्याची संधी मिळाली.

Trails were conducted for tourists staying at various places like Amrute’s Nisarga Sahawas – Gavhe, Naad Beach resort – Murud, Mangalmurti Niwas – Jalgaon, Hotel Abhishek – Jalgaon etc.
