Vansda National Park


With trees reaching a height of 120 ft. the forests of Vansda are dense and varied. The canopy is so thick that parts of the forest are in in darkness, with no sunlight passing through.

The Park is home to a diversity of mammals, including the leopard, hyena, chital, chausingha, jungle cat, small Indian civet, macaque, rhesus macaque, barking deer, wild boar, Indian porcupine, flying squirrel, Indian flying fox, pangolin, rusty-spotted cats, as well as the endangered great Indian squirrel.

There is also an abundance of pythons and 30 other species of snakes, including venomous ones. The main draw of Vansda is for bird-watchers as more than 115 species of birds can be seen here.
