Amboli Herp Trail

Snuggling coyly, in the southern ranges of the Sahyadri hills, Amboli at an altitude of 690 m is the last mountain resort before the coastal highlands settle, with a sigh, to form flat beaches. Surrounded by thick forests, it not only offers pleasant view of the lush green hills and fertile plain, but it is also home to many animals including occasionally visiting tigers. Amboli is popularly known as a sympatric location. Here one can get to see some species of amphibians and reptiles which are endemic to southern Western Ghats and many species which belong to northern Western Ghats.
