Happy days are here for trekking enthusiasts and SGNP welcomes you all for these especially designed long treks along with our expert naturalists.

The plan is clear, assemble in the morning and hit the forest trail as soon as possible. Spend your day in exploring the forest and soaking in the best of what the season has to offer. So pack in a spare set of clothes, a good energy giving snack and yes, don’t forget your rainwear. We are promising you a wild time right here in the city.
