One of the earliest tiger reserves in the country, Betla National Park is home to fauna like panthers, leopards, chital, sloths, wild bear, sambar, mouse deer and langurs. Spread over a hilly terrain of 250 sq km, the park is dotted with pristine waterfalls, natural hot springs and a smattering of monuments. The best way to explore the park is on an elephant ride, which generally starts at 5 am. The park remains open throughout the year but the ideal time to visit is between the months of November and March. Tourists can also visit the museum and library at the Nature Interpretation Centre, which is a storehouse of information about the national park and various flora and fauna. Another unmissable experience is attending the screening of video films and 16mm films that are shown at the park providing tourists with an amazing insight into wildlife.
