Why is Kanha the most sought-after National Park?

Monday - July 9, 2018 10:22 am , Category : LIFESTYLE

WTN -Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh is one of the largest, most sought-after, most visited and most celebrated wildlife destinations of South Asia, especially for the tigers it is known to house in its 1,000 sq km of rich and inviting wilderness.

Spread across Mandla and Balaghat districts of the state, Kanha was declared a reserve forest way back in 1955, making it one of the oldest in the country. It is also one of the best maintained national parks, known for its exemplary conservation efforts of the swamp deer.

   Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling’s famous creation ‘Jungle Book’ is said to be written with the Kanha forests also in the backdrop. Apart from the tiger, it is also home to the leopards, slump deer and barking deer, jackals, wild dogs, wild cats, porcupines, hyenas and bison and nilgai apart from a variety of birds from eagles to bee-eaters and reptiles like the cobra and python.

Among the floras, the park boasts of 1,000 species of flowering plants that adorn its verdant riches. Sal and bamboo intercepted by green meadows, streams, ridges, rocky formations and water bodies characterise the Kanha landscape, whose altitude varies from 600 to 900 metres above sea level.

The best season to visit the park is between February and June, while it is closed from July to mid-October. The timings for safari are from 6 to 11 in the morning and from 3 to 6 in the evening varying from season to season.

Jabalpur, about 170km away from Kanha, is the nearest airport well connected with various major cities of India, while it also serves as the nearest important railhead. Kanha can also be reached from Nagpur (250 km) and Raipur (215 km). Kisli is the most popular entry gate, while Mukki and Serai gates are the other two options.

Mandla and Seoni or even Nainapur can be considered for night halt as these places have all the facilities from coffer to café, even as there are resorts aplenty surrounding the gates to Kanha or on the access routes in the buffer zone. Bamni Dadar, the sunset point inside the park is a must-see spot flocked by tourists in large numbers.
