THE ARAVALIS

The Aravali range in north-western India is one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world (3200 billion years approx.). At present The Aravali range is only a reminiscent of the gigantic system that existed in the prehistoric times with several of its summits rising above the snow line and nourishing glaciers of stupendous magnitude which in turn fed many great glaciers. The Aravalis now flaunt a magnificent Semi-Dry Deciduous Forest.

Undulating hills of Aravali, supporting the dry deciduous forests, provide an unimaginable beautiful ambience. The area is characteristically rich in floral diversity- particularly medicinal plants. It has numerous floral and faunal species of global conservation significance. The rare flora comprises Kadaya (giving medicinal gum), Gugal, amla and Moosli etc. The predominant trees are- Khair, Salai, Modad, Dhavada, Khakhara, Timru. During late winters (February-March) Khakhara-the flame of the forests- known by many different names such as- Palash, Tesu, Kesudo, Dhak etc. is generally in bloom with its striking red color resembling flames in the forests. The rare animals include sloth bear, striped hyena, leopard, bluebull, porcupine, fox, small Indian civet, Indian pangolin and a number of reptiles including venomous and non-venomous snakes, monitor lizards, star tortoise etc. The rare birds of this area are adjutant Stork, spoonbill, osprey, white backed Vulture and black vultures.
