“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’”
—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Journey was fruitful in terms of birding as well as spotting animals.And of course Amrabad Tiger Reserve Safari was great experience in itself and additional treat .The Safari consists of jeep ride for one hour take you inside the forest area and peak point ,from where one can have bird view at Nallamalla forest,and that’s amazing,just hope its always preserved and be in its raw form.
