The Nature Information Center (NIC)

With its well thought displays and captivating models, makes the NIC a gateway to the real treasures of SGNP which are obviously its’ forests and the myriad life forms that live within. Exhibits here depict different aspects related to wildlife and biodiversity with a stress on the need for their conservation. The quite little garden outside is a haven for butterflies and also is developed as a display for some of our uncommon medicinal plants.

"NIC specialises in organising guided nature excursions into the SGNP wilderness; though prior intimation or booking helps in better arrangement of your trip."
