Bandhavgarh - the land of the Tiger
Considered to be one of the best national parks in the country, the Badhavgarh National Park spreads over 448 square kilometers of lush thick forest lands. With a hill that is at the height of 811 meters above sea level, the entire park sits on exquisite sloping valleys.
Exploring the Wonders of Mother Nature
The distinctive feature of this park comes in the form of its thick bamboo and sal forests, combined with marshlands at various spots. Animals such as the wild boar, jackal, sambhar and tiger are easily spotted here.
Located a convenient one hour away from Umaria, driving here or arriving by rail is rather easy.
The Best Way to Explore the Park
The ideal way to explore the park is on an elephant back. This way, visitors are able to enjoy a fantastic view of the majestic tigers. Jeep rides are also offered for those looking to explore some game in the morning or late afternoons.
In addition to the wild animals, other attractions in this region that you may want to explore include the 10th Century Statue of the Reclining Vishnu, the Baghel Museum and the Bandhavgarh Fort.
