In lava we had visited Lava Monastery. This place is fantastic location in my lava and lolegaon trip and very clean. The circumstance of that place is peaceful. We had visited Lava in April and that time the weather was very clear and clean. The monastery occupies a huge place. For education purpose many lamas are stayed here.You can spend some quality time in that area.
UNEXPLORE NEORA VALLEY:
EXPERIENCE WILD ENVIRONMENT
This valley is very close to lava, it’s known as Neora Valley National Park. This is the National Park though the tourists have the permission to go the zero point. This valley is like a ‘Mother of Nature’ basically a deep green forest. According to our driver this forest is change according the monsoon, like after monsoon the forest is deep green and after winter that is look like dry green. This is a nice place for birds’ lover, though there has an arrangement for Trek. The distance between Lava and Neora valley is 5 km.
Next day we had visited at Rishop. That time the hill station didn’t famous so much and only one hotel situated there. Now this place is so much popular. The weather that time was cold and some time the fog was came and covered this place. This place is exquisite for us.
Nest day we reached in Loleygaon. We had traveled 22 km to reach that place. Our hotel was located on the slope of the hill.
Next day our exploring was started. First time we knew that there had a Hanging Bridge situated in the forest and that is almost 3 km away. In my life this was first time happened to walking on that type of bridge.
HANGING BRIDGE INSIDE FOREST:
Along with the forest we had travelled a long distance then we saw the Hanging Bridge. There are many trees in the forest so the weather was clear and we had walked on that bridge easily. But the main problem is there are many leeches which are sucking our blood. So you must be aware about them.
