Thanks Pam for the comments. This and others were spotted along the road cutting through this forest on the way to Jaldhaka for an angling trip. While I was chasing these beauties my son kept the vehicle engine on in case wild elephants or anti-socials appear suddenly from the thick forest. In a group there's nothing to fear, in fact regular tours are organised for wildlife. There're also many other forests nearby for one-horned rhino, Gaur, elephants, pea fouls, etc. You can also check my spottings at Gorumara National Park. All tours're strictly accompanied by tour conductors. Best seasons: Sep - Nov. Good luck.

Absolutely superb, sir... Do you think it would be safe to go into these areas alone as an older woman? I would love to explore the butterflies in this region.
