When you hear Agra, you’ll automatically think of the magnificent monuments that dot the city. But there’s a little (or rather a vast) treasure hidden in the woods of Agra, offering you a chance to explore the Taj in a serene and somewhat offbeat way. Walk through the Taj Nature Park, an initiative of the Social Forestry Division of Agra, and experience the beauty of Taj from various angles and settings.
You’ll be walking through a 9 km trail, while various species of birds and wildlife and rare trees and shrubs keep you company. There are also elevated photo points, which give you the opportunity to capture the Taj with a backdrop like nowhere else. The area consists of rifts and valleys, a natural ridge area with pathways for the visitors’ comfort and guidance. With different hues offsetting the pristine white of the monument of love, you’re in for a literal visual treat.
