Kanha

 

Must see places :

 

In the 1930s, the Kanha area was divided into two sanctuaries, Hallon and Banjar, of 250 and 300 sq km each. Though one of these was subsequently disbanded, the area remained protected until 1947. Depletion of the tiger population in the years that followed led to the area being made an absolute sanctuary in 1952.

 

Guided Visits:

Forest Department guides accompany visitors around the park on mapped-out circuits which enable viewers to see a good cross-section of Kanha's wildlife. The best areas are the meadows around Kanha, where blackbuck, chital and barasingha can be seen throughout the day.

 

Bamni Dadar:

Known as Sunset Point, this is one of the most beautiful areas of the park, from where a spectacular sunset can be watched. The dense luxuriance of Kanha's forests can be seen from here. Animals that can be sighted around this point are typical of the mixed forest zone: sambar, barking deer, gaur and four-horned antelope.

 

The Baghira Log Huts:

Located amidst the raw jungle, the restaurant of Baghira Log Hut, Kisli provides the visitors a chance to enjoy the nature at a close. In the wild, guests can take a ride to the jungle, venture further and explore the rich valley fed by rivers and lakes. In the dense sal and bamboo forests where over 350 species of birds and some rare flora and fauna flourish. One can indulge in generous dose of Birds watching, nature walks, swimming, fishing and boating and not the least Tracking down the tiger in KANHA National Park.
