Unwind in the solitude
This trip was a much needed respite from the noise and rush of the city. The surroundings are serene. We spotted a wide variety of birds like the Bar-tailed Tree Creeper, Scaly-breasted Munia and many other in the forests around the estate. A lot of our time was spent unwinding- reading our favorite paperback or star-gazing. We also partook in the farming and gardening activities.
