Walking Amidst Nature in Hyderabad’s Gachibowli

Hyderabad lies on the banks of Musi River, in the northern part of the Deccan Plateau. Its lakes and the sloping terrain of low-lying hills provide a habitat for an assortment of flora and fauna. The University of Hyderabad is located in Gachibowli, on approximately 2,300 acre of land, home to over 734 flower plants, 10 species of mammals, 15 species of reptiles, and 220 species of birds. The aim of this walk is to learn more about the local plant types and how they have been replaced with imported varieties which have become part of our daily lives. We’ll also try to spot some birds and talk of some pressing environmental issues under the moon.

 

This guided tour is free.
