Bird Graveyard

Yes, come to this lovely paradise and see the dubious distinction this shares to be a bird graveyard. This is the place where the small birds are seen during the time monsoon sets in. Most of the birds are found amongst the cliffs of the Western Ghats and in this strong gusty ambience, the heavy rains and the fog only add on to the bird getting totally disoriented and out of focus here. So come here and see how many birds actually fall prey to the lights of the vehicles passing here and how many get hit by the cliff faces and thus die. But with times, and people getting more aware and protective about nature, this graveyard has a lesser number of bird deaths.

The area is very near a town here and there are not many restaurants and shopping malls here. There is an MTDC resort here which gives a lot of comfort and convenience to all and it is a great place to stay in. This resort has undergone lot of improvement in the past years and is huge and fantastic. Here one gets to see the best views of nature.
