The forest between Mukam and Samrathal is a heaven for the wild life

It is a large area under direct protection of the Bishnois (The furious conservators I must admit). The diversity of both flora and fauna is immense due to natural food chains culminating into well balanced food web. The geography of the area provides habitat to a variety of animals and plants, some of rare status also. It is infact an undistrubed area by more than five centuries.
