Oct 27, 10.00 a.m.: This time, Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek had an early start. And our first group got to witness a different side of this dense jungle.

"I have never seen this forest with such green undergrowth!" shares Senior Trek Leader Nitesh Kumar. He has observed the forest three years in a row now. "The water level in the streams is high and the birdlife in the forest is also more vibrant, compared to Dec-Jan season," he adds.

We have always conducted the Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek in December-January. But this time, we started the season in October. This shift allowed trekkers to witness a strikingly green jungle!

Answering our concerns about hot weather, Nitesh adds, "Surprisingly, it doesn't get hot here in the national park. Trekkers did not feel drained with heat at any point of time. Afternoons are exactly the same as in Dec-Jan, in fact better, with clouds floating in, a gentle breeze blowing, bringing in some moisture. After sun down, one fleece jacket was enough to keep warm," Nitesh shares, describing a perfect weather for trekking.

It's been a promising start for this year's robust season of Chhattisgarh Jungle Trek, spanning over four months. And we'll soon share more detailed updates from this trek.
