Bandhavgarh

The national park is a world famous tiger reserve where India’s first white tiger was found. The tiger density here is also the highest known in India. Bandhavgarh is spread over the Vindhya mountain range and is home to more than 22 species of mammals, 250 species of birds and 70 species of butterflies. It also boasts a variety of vegetation and landscapes of tall grass and thick sal forests. This facilitates the survival of a large range of animals and birds in the park. Primate species like common langur and rhesus macaque can also be found here. 

The park is divided in three zones, the Tala, the Magdi, and the Bamera. The Tala is the most popular as it offers maximum opportunities for sighting the tiger. The Bandhavgarh Fort is another attraction nearby. Local legend says that this fort was gifted by Lord Rama to his younger brother Lakshmana. The word 'bandhav' in the local dialect means brother and 'garh' translates into fort and thus the nomenclature of the fort has been derived from the legend or vice versa. The region itself has archaeological evidence dating to about 2,000 years ago. The man-made caves with inscriptions and rock paintings are definitely worth a visit.
