Dear All,

शिखर वेध has planned a weekend trip to Sagareshwar & Dajipur WLS from 29th Apr 2011 – 9 pm onwards and back in Mumbai on 2nd May 2011 till 6 am.

Dajipur Wildlife Sanctuary Safari

The jungle of Dajipur is situated on the border of Kolhapur and Sindhudurg districts about 500 km away from Mumbai. Surrounded by rugged mountains and dense forests, this secluded little place is completely cut-off from human habitat. Home to bison, wild deer, chital, gawa and many more spectacular wild animals and birds. Dajipur is an exciting and beautiful holiday getaway, situated 1200 metres above sea level. An excursion in the vicinity to the Gagangiri Maharaj’s Math makes for a pleasant outing. This scenic resort near the backwaters of the Radhanagari Dam is highly recommended for wildlife lovers and nature enthusiasts.


This sanctuary is unique as a very rare experiments and a significant endeavor in conservation in the sense that it is almost entirely a man made sanctuary, created through a planned afforestation programme, with an unreserved co-operation of the local population.

The route for the travel will be
Mumbai- Islampur – Sagareshwar – Kolhapur – Radhanagri -Dajipur-Kolhapur – Mumbai
