If you are looking to visit one of the finest and largest tiger reserve, then Kanha National park visit is must .The 1945-sq-km park consists of a 900-sq-km core zone surrounded by a 1005-sq-km buffer zone. It is one of the largest national parks in India.
The landscape are stunning combination of luxiruous meadows , wooded slopes and dense stands of forest that stretch as far as your eyes can see.
A well-marked 7km trail leads from just inside Khatiya Gate and skirts along the edge of the park before looping back to the village. Mostly you’ll see a lot of monkeys and birds, but tigers do venture into this area on occasions and an accompanying guide is essential
Kanha’s wildlife is unravelled. Its home to a myriad of life forms ranging from the mighty tigers to sloth bears, antelopes, birds, reptiles and many more. Kanha has some 200 species of birds. Watchers should station themselves in the hills, where the mixed and bamboo forests harbour many species, and in the grassy forest clearings.
The Best time to visit is February to June, although the cool season is much more comfortable and still very good for wildlife. (The park is closed from July 1 to October 31because of the monsoon).
For those planning a visit, a stay of at least three nights is recommended in order to have a good chance of seeing the more elusive animals – although, of course, a brief visit will also be very interesting.
