Bhoot Bangla Trek

During the day I don't believe in Ghosts, But during the night I am more open-minded...

Exploring the Dark Zone. No one can see in total darkness or can you…  there's almost always some light available. Even if it's only dim starlight.

Night vision, also called scotopic vision, is your natural ability to see in the dark. It kicks in when different components, in particular your pupils and retinas, work together inside your eyes. It can come in pretty handy when you need it.

What one sees and what one observes are closely linked to your beliefs. Come and Explore with #NatureKnights the Zone of Darkness...
