About Sammilan Shettys Butterfly Park

Sammilan Shetty's Butterfly Park is a beauty in itself. The first ever sanctuary dedicated to butterflies, it is set amid lush greenery, sprawling over a modest 7.35 acres of land at the foothills of the Kantawara forests in Belvai. The park is home to 118 species of butterflies, where some are endemic to the Western Ghats. The best part of this park is its noble effort to provide the much-needed freedom to these gentle winged creatures. The colorful creatures are not caged in aviaries or enclosures. They just roam around the park, fluttering their vibrant wings. The sanctuary authorities have made available some favorable conditions by planting nectar-rich floras that attract and encourage the breeding of butterflies in a natural setting. Apart from providing a natural habitat for these spectacular creatures in the Western Ghats, the park authority wants to educate visitors about the dire need of conserving these winged insects while offering an entertaining experience by exhibiting different varieties of butterflies.

Pro Tip: Maintain silence and do not try to catch the butterflies
