Van Rani Sanjay Gandhi National Park Borivali Mumbai
Van Rani - Sanjay Gandhi National Park
The Sanjay Gandhi National Park, also known as the Borivali National Park is a large protected area in Mumbai. The park is spread over an area of about 104 square kilometers. The Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) is one of the biggest national parks existing within a metropolis limit and is one of the most visited national parks in India with 2 million annual visitors.

The park is nestled in the hill ranges to the east of the suburb of Borivali. The road which goes to this area immediately plunge right into the heart of a rich and spacious forest. Tall trees, wild flowers, plenty of botanical species singing and colorful looking birds that are invariably associated with the woods impart a peace of mind that is wonderful to enjoy. One could hardly believe that there could be so much forest so near Mumbai, so wealthy in its variety, so much delightful to see and enchanting to get lost.

The famous Kanheri Caves, Teen Murti, Vihar Lake, Tulsi Lake, and Lion Safari, Mini Train called Van Rani are all located in this National Park.

This is a perfect place for one day picnic. The western express highway is very near from the park's gate.
