Yes aarosh. I had shared almost all the photos of FRHs on the Puzzle thread. A few of those do not even exist now. So thought to make a new thread & put them together along with some landscapes from our trips

A photo from Manas National Park , A UNESCO world heritage site. A herd of wild buffalo can be seen on the other bank of the river. That side of the Forest is in Bhutan ( 'Royal Manas National Park' ) .

Satkosia Gorge hosts a number of Forest Rest Houses in different zones / ranges. We stayed in three of those FRHs - Tikarpara FRH, Labangi Bungalow & Tulka FRH . It seems I've lost the photo of the Tulka Rest House.

Posting photos of the Tikarpara FRH -

The forest rest house at Labangi, in Satkosia Gorge Sanctuary is ideally located on a hillock overlooking the valley. It's around 20 Kms away from Tikarpara & closer to Angul, if anyone is coming from that side .

Thanks for your comments . Yes, Manas is one of the most beautiful forests I've ever been.

I would also request you to post landscapes from the forests & bird sanctuaries you visited; specially from the forests of South India
