  Bandhavgarh
 


In the Vindhyan Mountain range in Madhya Pradesh, the Bandhavgarh National Park is famous for The White Tigers of Rewa which was captured in the Park in 1951, resulting Bandhavgarh to be declared as a park in 1968. Bandhavgarh's history goes back 2000 years in time and the earliest signs of habitation can be seen in the Caves excavated from the cliffs to the north of the fort. No records remain to show when Bandhavgarh fort was constructed. Bandhavgarh with 25 resident tigers was noted for its high density tiger population.

Today, it has been extended to an area of 437 sq. km. A wildlife retreat, where history and nature meet, Bandhavgarh is not too far away from Kanha.

About 150 species of birds are also found here and include the migratory birds that arrive in winter like the steppe eagle and various water birds.

The landscape is a unique mixture of steep and rocky hills, with flat tops and level grasslands in the valleys below. The vegetation found within the Park is moist deciduous forest with fine Sal trees with stretches of bamboo.
About half of the Park is covered with fine stands of Sal, while mixed forests are found in the higher reaches of the hills. Stretches of bamboo and grasslands extend to the north. The main viewing area is still in the core of the Park with its wooded hills.
