 Awesome  pics  humaid  Smile  
 
 Just  some  info  about  Anshi  national  Park.
 It  is  located  in  the  Uttar  Kannada  district,  around  30-40  minutes  by  bus,  from  karwar.  Anshi  is  a  comparitively  non-commercialised  area,  in  terms  of  tourism.  The  forests  here  are  very  dense,  so  mammal  spottings  are  a  rarity.  However,  it  is  a  TREAT  for  all  the  birders  and  reptile  people  out  there  Smile  
 
 For  this  particular  trip,  the  backdrop  was  an  awesome  event.  The  conclusion  of  my  exams  Very Happy  
 4  of  us,  Me,Abhiram  and  2  other  friends,  Bhavendu  and  Raj,  who  arent  fish  hobbyists,  left  Pune  by  the  7  o  clock  bus,  for  Belgaum.  It  was  a  huge  relief,  to  just  THINK  about  getting  away  from  the  city  life,  deep  into  the  wilderness.  
 
 The  guys  at  Belgaum
 After  reaching  Belgaum,  we  had  to  wait  till  6  o  clock  in  the  morning,  after  which  we  proceeded  to  Dandeli,  to  get  our  permissions  from  the  RFO,  Dandeli.  
 After  the  permissions  and  a  LONG  and  agonising  wait  at  the  bus  stop,  we  finally  managed  to  reach  Anshi  national  Park  (ANP)  at  around  5.30  in  the  eve.  It  was  nearly  24  hours  from  the  time  we  had  left  home.  All  travel  had  been  by  state  transport  buses  (NWKRTC  totally  rules!!  Smile  )  After  some  looking  around  here  and  there,  we  reached  camp  site,  after  a  3km  walk.  We  took  the  keys  to  the  dormitories  (which  i  must  say,  are  AWESOME  and  CHEAAAAAP   Thumb Up  ),  dumped  our  luggage.  Me  and  Abhiram  promptly  went  outside  the  campsite,  to  the  stream  that  flows  through  ANP.  No  interesting  fish  there,  apart  from   rasbora  daniconius  :/  
 After  that,  and  some  minor  gecko/lizard/colorful  frog/disgusting  toad  catching  here  and  there,  we  finally  settled  down  in  the  main  hall  at  the  campsite,  for  a  nice  cuppa  Smile
 Humaid,  and  5  others,  from  mumbai,  including  an  ace  herpetologist,  were  to  arrive  by  car,  the  next  day.
 
 Day  2
 We  did  a  forest  trail  early  morning.  Did  not  find  anything  interesting.  What  we  did  find,  were  tonnes  of  leeches   Sad   After  wrapping  up  the  morning  trail,  we  left  for  Anshi  village,  to  receive  the  folks  from  Mumbai.  Humaid  had  wanted  a  'royal'  welcome  at  the  ANP  gate.  Here  is  abhirams  artifact,  which  he  crafted  during  the  3km  walk  :D
 
 
 
 The  dudes  from  Mumbai  abandoned  their  hired  Tavera  at  the  gates,  instead  prefering  to  walk  the  3kms  to  the  campsite,  searching  roadside  bushes  enroute.  
 We  got  this  scorpion,  some  frogs  and  a  skink  on  the  road.  Also  saw  many  juvenile  chequered  keelbacks,  roadkilled  Sad  
 
 
 
 
 
 Also  got  a  pair  of  draco's  on  a  tree.  These  guys  were  absolutely  impossible  to  spot,  for  an  untrained  eye.  The  presence  of  field-savvy  people  with  us,  was  a  huge  advantage  Smile

 I  was  using  Nikon  D3000  +  18-55mm  VR  Lit  Lens.  Have  used  only  the  inbuilt  flash.  Did  use  some  one  to  hold  the  torch  since  the  camera  gave  problems  auto  focusing  in  low  light.

 Excellent  pictures.
 BTw  how  far  away  were  you  from  pit  viper  while  taking  pics.  Very Happy  
 Looks  like  a  nice  place  to  go.
                 

 
 Thanks.  The  distance  was  about  2ft.  One  thing  I  would  like  to  say  here  is,  when  looking  through  the  lens,  you  keep  going  near  n  near.  So  always  have  some  person  to  shout  at  you  when  you  are  too  close.

 All  we  found  were  only  Rasbora.  We  did  spend  a  day  at  Kadra,  where  we  spotted  lots  of  different  fish.

 It  is  quite  an  easy  place  to  reach  from  Bangalore.  Just  take  an  over  night  bus  to  Karwar.  You  should  reach  Karwar  early  morning.  From  there  take  any  bus  which  goes  via  Anshi.  Anshi  should  be  Max  1.5Hrs  from  Karwar.
