Ideally located to explore this part of Konkan one can reach Guhagar, Velneshwar Hedvi or even Ganpatipule in less than an hour from Garva Agro Tourism Centre. Options for sightseeing are numerous around the centre however the activities available at the centre might leave you less inclined to visit any of those!!

Guhagar Velneshwar Hotels

Early mornings start with milking the cow at Garva. The guests are welcome to visit and see how it is done. Guests are also welcome to join in to feed the cows or giving the cow a bath! Kids have a lot of fun playing especially with the calves!

Guhagar Velneshwar Hotels

The jungles under a minutes walk away from the centre opens up the option of exploring the jungle trails. A walk here in the early mornings is really relaxing. The birds and the butterflies that one gets to see here is just an added incentive.
