Phansad Wild Life Sanctuary

With over 720 species of flora and 279 species of fauna that include mammals, birds and butterflies a trek in Phansad wild life sanctuary is an interesting digression during a beach holiday to Diveagar.

Owing to the hilly terrain you would need to be extremely lucky to spot a larger mammal like leopard or barking deer however Phansad is a paradise for bird watchers and lepidopterist! Phansad claims to be home to over 90 species of butterflies along with numerous species of avians!!

Phansad is located 12 kms away from Murud beach and generally a visit to the Murud beach or the fort is coupled with a visit to the bird sanctuary.
