Flora of Sab Langka Wildlife Sanctuary
When we arrived at this wildlife sanctuary, we were told that nobody is allowed to go into the forest as they have released some rare species of deers in that area. However, we're allowed to explore in a nearby area. The whole area is the central plain limestone hill formation. This is one of the longest limestone hill formation I ever seen in my life!
Starting point. One of the Park ranger who bringing us to explore in this area was used to be a poacher. When he was arrested for poaching, the ranger asked him to make a choice : to face the sentence or to work for them. He made the right decision to work for them.
