It was the much awaited weekend for wildlife enthusiasts in and around Coimbatore. Greenspiration 2016 was underway and we had speakers from all over India. Most of them couldn’t take a day off after the event because of their busy schedule, but upon request Mr. Karthikeyan Srinivasan, Head Naturalist of The Jungle Lodges and Resorts decided to stay back for an extra 2 nights and head out for a jungle trek with our team.
Right after the event, we headed towards Sethumadai, Pollachi, where accommodation was arranged for the team. The following day we went for a trek in Karianshola, Topslip. With Karthik guiding us, it was a learning process for most of us. The forest floor was teaming with macro life, so much so we were on the look out to not step on any creatures!
We came across some amazing spiders, mantis, butterflies, bugs and geckos.
