Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: A conservation project by an ordinary couple attracts a lot of visitors inspired by their efforts to transform a barren hillslope into a forest. The Butterfly is used only as a catalyst . Breeding butterflies need endemic plants , clean air and humus rich soil . Caterpillars attract lot of insect predators hence the cycle is complete. Visitors get to see the free flying butterflies only between September to December , but are more attracted to this place to interact with wildlife artist Yashodan , see his paintings , his unique rooftop garden house with rainwater tanks and the many tiny surprises that the conservatory has to offer.

“It's seasonal not all round the year”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

It's is located 6KM away from Ponda, Goa. They claim 1030 to 1130 is the right time to visit. But pls check with the operator to know the right breeding season and most butterfly visiting season and visit them. Else it is just a tropical forest. Better avoid if you are not interested in nature. It is good to prefer other location

“Butterfly park”
Reviewed 13 January 2010

It was pure accident that we landed up at the butterfly park as we were actually searching for Tropical Spice Farm. They need to put up more signboards . There were no visitors at that moment so we had the whole park for ourselves. Wow !
It has been so beautifully and painstakingly done , especially after we found out that everything was put up by just a team of husband and wife and their domestic help. We spotted 23 species which is good plus we were shown some butterfly caterpillars . I didn't know butterflies came out of caterpillars ! i loved the rainwater harvesting concept with the garden on the roof thing. The stream idea is innovative because it does not look made up. We had planned to just check it out in 10 minutes and we ended up spending two hours.

The tropical spice garden was also good . The approach by the bridge on the lake is out of the world
