2 nights 3 days of Macro Photography Masterclass Expedition at Amboli, one of the hotspots of the Western Ghats for the amazing herpetofauna that is found around this place during monsoons.
Aptly called Maharashtra’s Cherapunji – a Biodiversity Hotspot, Amboli – is situated deep within the dense foliage of the Sahyadris range in the southern most portion of Maharashtra and exhibits the highest rainfall to the tune of 7446 mm. An amazingly calm and serene atmosphere of this place has still not seen the ugly face of commercialization. With the exotic lesser fauna, eye catching waterfalls, greenery spread upto the horizon, play of wind with clouds and densely packed fog in the woods with a surrounding silent and calm atmosphere and mouth watering Konkani food – one is bound to feel out of the world during his stay in Amboli. DCP is organizing a two night three days Herpetofauna Photography workshop at Amboli.

The first glimpse of the forest mesmerizes with a typical picture of a mystic rainforest with tall trees and their whispering canopies, creepers and climbers, with intertwining branches of trees with mosses hanging down and most of times made even more mysterious by the dense fog packed above the forest floor. Every corner of the forest is alive, below every little leaf, behind every dried bark and under every soaked rock, there is a life vibrating.
