Bandhavgarh national park is located at Madhya Pradesh in Central India. The park is within a forested area and is surrounded by the Vindhya hills. The park began to flourish after it has handed over to the government in 1968 by the Maharaja and declared a protected area. The park of Bandhavgarh covers an area of 448 square kilometers. The most common tree species in the park are Bamboo and Sal trees. In 1193, the national park became a tiger reserve.
If you are a lover of the wild and would love to pay a visit to this national park, it’s important that you first of all seek the services of a trip adviser. Accessing the area is a bit difficult if you are by yourself. The trip adviser will change all that and instead make your expedition all worth and fulfilling. To get access the area, you need to get a direct train from the Umaria train station. The distance between the park and the train station is 32 kilometers and it will take approximately 19 hours to get to Bandhavgarh. Incase you want to travel by plane, you can connect from the Khajuraho and Jabalpur airports. The road network to the national park may be a bit discouraging to the traveler and this is why you need the services of a trip adviser.
Within the surroundings of the park, there are a number of resorts that offer accommodation to tourists and visitors. The jungle resort that you intend to be staying at if arranged can pick you up from the station but at an extra cost. Some travelers however opt to use jeeps to access the park as well as the resorts. Another way that you can use to connect is by the use of a helicopter. This will be more costly and will cost you at least 200 US dollars. If you are in company of a local trip adviser, you will be able to get more than an adventure. Since they have a wide knowledge of the area, they will lead you to great markets and resort shops where you can shop for souvenirs. Ash trays, t-shirts and key chains are the most common commodities that you will find from these shops. Wildlife books and maps are also sold from these shops.
The national park will give you a different taste and experience of the wild animals as well a very beautiful natural environment. The trip adviser will also lead you to other surrounding tourist sites such as the Kanha national park and the Fossil national park. Other great sites that you will see here are the Indian temples, Marble rocks, diamond mines, archeological sites and great rivers. If you want a long expedition of the area, but do not know the best jungle resort to check into, I recommend that you visit Tiger Trails Safari Lodge, Teen den Resort, Nature Heritage Resort or Bandhavgarh Jungle Lodge. From the visit, you will get an experience worth your time, money and desires.
