Spokesperson of Ariko cafe Sharath Kumar Gattu, says the tree plantation drive will teach campers the importance of trees. “The campsite is full of trees and they will enjoy the space in its natural beauty only because of the Miyawaki forest. We have also released a video where a child who camped here made a beautiful observation about the trees and birds.”
