Imagine Walking down towards the river and then suddenly being surrounded by over 150 crocodiles! That’s exactly what happens if you go down the Downstream of Kali river to a place just outside Dandeli town. It is said that the crocodiles congregate to make this spot their resting lands on the pulp waste released into the waters of the Kali by the West Coast Paper Mill, set up in the 1950s. Over the years, the crocodiles, have apparently become habituated to resting and eating the same. .
Honey Bee Park
Honey bees are responsible for $30 billion a year in crops. That's only the start. We may lose all the plants that bees pollinate, all of the animals that eat those plants and so on up the food chain. Which means a world without bees could struggle to sustain the global human population.
This unique honey park is taking shape in Dandeli just 20 km from the town. A hive of activity is going on here. The park is opened for visitors and will have a guided tour where they can have a first- hand experience on how the honey is made, processed and sold. The park has a demo area, processing unit and a unit to sell honey. Soaps, body wax and wax candles made of pure honey will also be available.
Many interesting facts of these tiny pollinators will now be made available for visitors to Dandeli. For instance, honeybees visit 40 lakh flowers to produce 1 kg of honey. And to produce one drop of honey, a single bee has to make 500 trips.
The idea of a park was mooted as availability of pure honey has become a rarity and several big brands are not giving pure form of honey to their guests coming to dandeli.
