A biodiversity-rich festival
On the same, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest & Head of Forest Force UP Mamta Sanjeev Dubey stated, “Over the past few years, the UP Forest Department along with UP Tourism have created some beautiful circuits across the state’s forests, its rich plethora of historical sites, ancient cities, landmarks and natural beauty, offering responsible nature and culture-based experiences for tourists.”
Apart from the huge diversity in birds, including winter migratory birds, nature lovers will also get to witness flourishing wildlife and find animals like tigers, leopards, rhinoceros, swamp deer, jackals, crocodiles, and so on.
