This weekend I was at the Sanjay Gandhi National Park with a friend of mine- Riken. This is my verdict of the National Park. First off, a bit of background about the park. Sanjay Gandhi National was founded back in 1969 and notified in 1974. Fun fact: Mumbai is the only metropolis on the planet which has a national park within its boundaries. The forest teems with flora and fauna and it is as close as you can get to nature in Mumbai. The forest is miraculously well preserved and the tarmac roads are fun to bike on. It was a damp Friday morning when we left off for the park. Incredibly, it's only 4 kilometers away from my home. Our main objective was to hire a bike and ride it till the Kanheri Caves. The Kanheri Caves are rock cut monuments situated in the middle of the national park. They're around 6 kms from the main gate. When we entered the park, we were greeted by a gust of damp air, but we did not let that deter our spirits. We took two decent road bike for hire and set off. The bikes cost Rs.30 an hour and there's a deposit of Rs.300. Also, don't forget to carry a photo ID proof. With that process completed, we began our strenuous ride to the caves. The road is almost flat, though there are minor up hills. I'd say that the gradient of the slope is around 3-5%. In the monsoon, which is the time we visited, the place was like heaven on earth. Around 3 kms in, we found a beautiful river. We sat there for some time, marveling the fact that Mumbai could have such a place. The serene atmosphere, however, was enhanced by the fact that it started to drizzle. We ventured on and soaked in the beautiful sights. Soon we reached a steep slope. Keeping our bikes aside, we trekked on foot. About 750 meters ahead emerged the entrance to Kanheri Caves. We had to climb some stairs and we finally reached the caves. The walk revealed to us many scenic waterfalls. The Buddhist influence in Western India is also quite prominent by the inscriptions at the caves. The caves are at a decent altitude and the view from the hills was staggering. The water gushing down the steep slope has a calming effect on your mind. Since I am a regular cyclist, I found the biking trek to be quite rewarding. The same can't be said about everyone, but you can only blame the urban sedentary lifestyle for that. The way back was stupendous as it involved lots of downhill cycling. We stopped by the river again and had a quick drink and some snacks. We were back in 3 hours. The Park was immensely well maintained and there wasn't a trace of litter. We handed back our rented cycles and returned home with a fresh mind. Quick tips for cyclists: 1. Carry a light backpack, water and some snacks. 2. Conserve energy while riding. 3. Check the bike before renting it. 4. Downhills are the most rewarding aspect of the journey. To feel the wind in your face, you'll have to work hard by biking uphill. 5. The best time to visit is between June and September, during the monsoon. -Aalok Mehta, 16 year old nature lover
