JUNGLE CAMP VIKHARABAD
The GrassWalk Jungle Camp is a place forgotten by time. An oasis of charm and grace, where everyday problems melt away. The camp is situated at one & a half hours drive from the main city of Hyderabad. The camp is known for its beauty and close to nature recognition. It is a definitive destination for guests who like to visit the most remote places away from the crowd. Vikharabad was the hunting place of the 6th Nizam and his nobles. The town Vikharabad was named after the Vikhar-ul-Umra, The then prime minister of Hyderabad. The Dama-Gundam Temple is situated in the middle of the forest surrounded by the freshwater springs which flow throughout the year. The temperature here is known to always be 5*C less than the city, The forest is interconnected till the Ananthagiri hill range and rasnam, The breeze is healthy and pure, The 7th Nizam built a sanitarium 60 years ago at Ananthagiri for the T.B patients and is about 30 km away from our camp and is located and on the other side of the Vikharabad town, The Vikharabad is also known for mango farming (amrai). We are situated on the edge of the Damagundam forest. Forest is home for Sambar, Blackbuck, Cheetal (spotted deer) Chowsingha (four-horned antelope), Chinkara (Indian gazelle), Junglee Bakri (wild goat), Mouse Deer, rabbit, hare, wild boar, bush pig, porcupines, python, monitor lizards, etc. Among the birds, peacocks are the most common that are regularly found feasting in the fields.
