National Parks in India
Depending on the area and terrain, National Parks provide ample opportunities to the visitors to have close encounters with the wilds. But what is so exquisite about the Indian National Parks is the variance that they are equipped with. Whether it comes to the flora, avifauna, and aquafauna, or witnessing various wild forms in their natural surroundings on an elephant or inside a jeep, wild ventures are simply amazing!
Some of the best jewels of Indian wilderness include the Great Himalayan National Park, Dachigam National Park near Srinagar, Corbett National Park in Uttar Pradesh, which is also a famous tiger reserve, Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, and Sundarbans National Park in West Bengal. Worth visiting in the east indian part in "The Land of Rhino" Assam is Kaziranga.
Wandering about in a wildlife sanctuary and witnessing the wildlife therein can be quite an adventurous experience. Whether it is done while riding on an elephant's back, or from a watch tower or from a boat, the thrill that one can have while spotting herds of wild elephants, deer and predators catching their preys in their natural habitat is much more exciting than watching a wildlife documentary on television.
Such as the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary known as largest bird sanctuary in Asia, which is much more famous as a refuge of migratory birds like barons, ibis, pelicans and painted storks that make it their temporary home during the winter months. Two splendid protected habitats situated in the Himalayan foothills are the Jim Corbett National Park and The Dudhwa National Park that provide an unforgettable wildlife experience. The most pleasant time to visit any wildlife sanctuary in India, with the exception of Dachigam is the months between October and March. However, the chances of spotting wildlife are better from March to June when the weather is hot.
