Satpura National Park : CENTRAL INDIA

It is a place every true wildlife lover must visit for appreciating the peaceful jungle, away from the hustle & bustle of safari jeeps. The beautiful hilly terrains, deep gorges, rivulets, untouched forest locations etc. of Satpura National Park are nurtured in the Satpura Ranges of Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh. Alongside are the adjoining Pachmarhi & Bori Sanctuaries.

If you are fed-up of crowded wildlife sanctuaries, the struggle for getting safari tickets, standing in a queue for the safari jeeps, over-crowding of these jeeps during wildlife sighting, then Satpura National Park is the right solution for real wildlife lovers.

The terrain of the national park is extremely rugged and consists of fascinating deep valleys, sandstone peaks, narrow gorges, rivulets, waterfalls, thickly dense green forest of Sal and other medicinal herbs and the vast Tawa reservoir.

The highest peak of Madhya Pradesh, Dhoopgarh is at an altitude of 4500 feet (1400 m.), and the sunlight reaches this peak earlier than any other landscape of Madhya Pradesh.
