Kanha National Park

About the Park

Parking itself around the Banjar and Halon rivers and a perfect setting for the Tiger, Kanha National park is an evergreen forest with tons of undergrowth that provides ambush. The rolling grasslands and meandering streams provide food for herbivores; and if the prey has food, the predator will always follow. This national park happens to be one of the best-managed forests in terms of wildlife tourism.

Reintroducing the Hard Ground Barasingha was one such achievement. Also called the “Jewel of Kanha”, these Barasinghas were put under special enclosures to encourage breeding and avoid extinction. 

The result was quite evident when their population skyrocketed. From merely 66 in number, Kanha was now home to 600-700 Barasinghas. The department’s efforts paid off when Kanha National Park was awarded the best tourism-friendly national parks, by the Government of India.

One associates Central India with being a water-stricken and rather hot area – however, the opposite holds true for Kanha. Chilled winters, availability of water around the year, and coolness in the early morning and evening in peak summer characterize the uniqueness of this place.
