Amboli Wildlife trails


Amboli is a hill station in south Maharashtra, India. At an altitude of 690 m (2,260 ft) it is the last hill station before the coastal highlands of Goa.

Amboli lies in the Sahayadri Hills of Western India, one of the world's Eco Hot-Spots  and it abounds in unusual flora and fauna. However, as in the other parts of the Sahaydri Hills, denudation of the forest cover and unregulated government-assisted development are gradually ruining a once-pristine environment.

Amboli also known for its botanical garden and the most suspicious creature found in the only place of Maharashtra - Malabar pit viper with its various morphs makes Amboli wildlife a good tourist attraction spot. Not only snakes but also amphibians and reptiles make it more interesting and a must visit place for wildlife interested people and Photographers.
